4 stars FLASKET BRINNER will always be best remembered as a live band in Sweden. I've seen their name mentioned in liner notes many times over the years as being an influence, including by one of my favourite bands ANEKDOTEN.They played a free form Jazz style but with that Rock edge to it.They loved to jam and that can be heard on this their debut. Speaking of "live" some of the tracks here were definitely recorded in front of an audience because you can hear them cheering at times.

"Ganglaten" sounds so good early on as it slowly builds. When it gets fuller we gets some organ runs and sax excursions. "Tysta Finskan" has a good beat with the flute playing over top.The sax replaces the flute 3 minutes in and we get some organ here too. It settles some as the guitar comes to the fore at 6 minutes. Flute and sax are back after 9 minutes then the percussion leads 12 minutes in to the end. "Gunnars Dilema" is a short uptempo piece with prominant organ. "Bengans Val" is another short piece that's jazzy and we get some guest organ from Bo Hansson who would later become part of this band.

"Bosses Lat" is percussion and flute led early then it turns fuller after a minute. Nice. Guitar leads 3 minutes in. "Rava" is heavier with guitar and drums out front. "Uppsala Gard" features organ and a beat and we get some vocal melodies before 1 1/2 minutes. "Musik Fran Liljevalchs" builds and the sax and percussion stands out. It settles then the organ comes in as it builds and kicks back in. Nice. Big finish before it calms right down to end it.

A solid 4 star album and a must for those who are into bands who jam with lots of flute and sax.
