3 stars This being the only LANDBERK album I own, I cannot compare it any previous ones. I'll just say that "Indian Summer" offers a unique sound as far as prog is concerned - call it prog dressed in an 'alternative' suit. The vocalist sounds like a carbon copy BONO but the music is nothing like that of U2.

The album is made up of simple melodies with interesting textures and experimental sounds (lush, symphonic keyboards, mellotron and prominent drums through out). It is very low key and the sadness that pervades the entire album (dark atmosphere, sensuous yet mournful vocals) is perhaps its weakest point. Even the more up-tempo tracks such as "1st of May" and "Dustgod" give the impression of having been written during some bout of existential ennui. It's cool stuff, in a way, and will surely hold you spellbound for a spin or two, if only for the uniqueness of the sound, the shimmering guitar play and the drums which are used to good effect. Its shelf-life, however, I find rather short.

Hibou | 3/5 |
