5 stars Oh, there were the times when Roine was young and The Flower Kings, Transatlantics and other Roine-related projects hadn't appear yet. Roine was young,he played guitar in awesome Swedish band KAIPA, which debut work I adore.

Proto-SINKADUS and pre-ANGLAGARD!!! Wonderful melodies, stuninnig musicianship and horrorful Svedishshsh language!!! :-) Sorry folks I prefer English. But vocal is great anyway. Dramatic themes as "Ankaret" and "Saker har tva sidor" create contrast with mild "Skogspromenad" which is simply classical music and opening "Musiken ar Ljuset" which I adore (kinda Scandinavian CAMEL!).

Well,this album is prominent one in Scandinavian Prog - just like "Per un Amico" by PFM in Italian Prog or "In the Court of the Crimson King" by King Crimson in English Prog. Evergreen classic and a must-have for every prog-fan. Highly recommended!!!
