3 stars The second album from this Swedish symph prog band.

Recorded and released in the 1970s, it most certainly capture the sound and attitude from that time. The twenty odd minutes long Skenet Bedrar is the Scandinavian answer to Supper's Ready. But Genesis is not a default comparisson I would make though. Kaipa's music and sound is in it's entirety shaped and formed from Swedish music. In particular the very popular folk music scene. Add influences from Genesis to the mix and a lot of Swedish church music and hymns and you get Kaipa. Inget Nytt Under Solen has a very distinct Scandinavian sound and identity. A sound based on long and lingering organs and guitar tones. The music is pastoral throughout and could had been performed in a small Swedish wooden church. Church music is what this album sounds like.

The music is very good throughout. But this album is for me a bit step backwards from their debut album. There is very few really good songs here. Skenet Bedrar is at times great, but does not really get anywhere. The same goes for the rest of this album. It is still a very good album, but that's it. But as the inspiration and the blueprint for The Flower Kings, it is still very much worth checking out.

3.5 stars
