5 stars Noone expects something unique from a band's 15th album. Unless we 're referring to Motorpsycho, this musically inventive band from Norway.

"The Death Defying Unicorn" features the band's collaboration with Trodheim Jazz Orchestra and the result can be adequately described as "unexpectedly superb". The heavy laid-back stoner rock is more scarcely present here, and room has been given to prog rock in its most 70s and adventurous form. Most songs have a complex structure and yet achieve a growing impact to the listener, combining soundtrack and jazzy prog music into a unique result, influenced by the best of prog rock music with a rather current jazzy spiciness. The role of the orchestra is highly important and not just a background. Many compostional parts are based on wind instruments. Most pieces are tremendous, though the album works most effectively when heard from start to finish, without any interruption.

An absolute beauty, one of the most inventive prog rock albums I 've heard the last decade. Recommended to all fans of progressive music. Alongside Discipline's 2011 album "To Shatter All Accord", this masterpiece deserves a special place in the history of prog rock.

Favorite tracks (among equals): "Through The Veil", "Into The Gyre", "La Lethe".
