3 stars Big pounding drums, swirling Hammond organs, eerie sounds and chunky bass engaging. This Norwegian collective know their chops and deliver an album with improvisations that are both free and tight, rocking and at the same time spontaneous.

Just like the follow-up "Walk The Nile", I instantly would want to buy tickets to see them in concert, but at home this album never sets the house on fire. A recommendable feature for most, but I prefer music that does. It's hard to tell what's missing, but I blame the lack of really memorable grooves and compositions that similar sounding bands like Guapo and One Shot have for instance. The atmosphere and intensity is present though and the playing is wonderful.

Despite my misgivings this is an enjoyable album from a great band. Overall I prefer it to "Walk The Nile", and the album gets better and more weird towards the end, where "Direction" ends the album on a high note. 3.5 stars
