3 stars 3.5

First, let me clarify (since no one else has) that Karaboudjan is more or less a joke band, inspired by the Belgian comic Tintin. "Karaboudjan" is the name of a ship, "Plan 714 Til Sydney" means "Flight 714 to Sydney" and is one of the Tintin comics, as are "Den Svarta Ön" (The Black Island) and "Den Mystiska Stjärnan" (The Mysterious Star).

That being said, the music is quite good, which is what one would expect from Swanö, and very eccentric (track 2 features steel drums and a crazy Zorn-worthy saxophone-drum-guitar solo section, preceded by a doom/sludge/whatever segment) Track 3 is however very chaotic and I find bits of it difficult to listen to even on a good day.

A good EP, though perhaps not worth the import price.
