2 stars Sole album from that Swedish band with a strange name first released by MUSEA in 1997 is absolutely nothing to be missed if you never heard of it and a quite typical "end-of-seventies-prog-goes-pop" one. One might compare this record with the worst ones by KAIPA ("Händer","Nattdjurstid"). I mean not really bad music at all, maybe okay to be played in the back, but rather dull overall. In some tracks there are nice approaches of slightly intricate instrumental prog like in "Innan Strax Före" or "Oleg" for example but those are immediately canceled by going on with the usual pop-ish procedure. Most of the songs are sung in Swedish language which is not a problem at all for me even if I don't understand the lyrics. Only "Daffodils", a fully acoustic one is sung in English with a terrible accent. Sorry for the artists who were certainly not bad musicians at all but I've got to say that this one isn't worth to take an effort to find it.Really not worth more than 2 stars!
