3 stars After hearing ATTIC THOUGHTS, I'm surprised that Bo Hansson hasn't received more applause than I perceive him having. It falls right in line with good symphonic instrumental prog that is heavy on the keyboards, but allows the guitar to have some fun.

And it sheds most perceived pomposity by not really having much in the solo department; all tracks more or less function as if they indeed were classical pieces of music for a keyboard-led rock band. The tracks aren't overkill in the length department either, so the lack of any singing is somewhat nullified by the tunes being comparatively bite-sized.

Major problem-the inconsistency of the material. The second half is an absolute joy to listen to. ''Rabbit Music'', ''A Happy Prank'' and ''Time for Great Achievements'' especially pick up the pace of the album that was at a near lull on the first side. The opening march theme is it for the A side for me; it only lasts a minute before veering completely off course into mellower areas. ''Waiting''' is very apropos; I'm always waiting for something to happen.

While not a supremely great album, ATTIC THOUGHTS fits very nicely and can be uncannyingly enjoyable.
