4 stars This band pretty much nailed the 70's English Symphonic Progressive style to a tee, although to be fair they mix in a bit of a Swedish folk music influence here and there. It's been a while since I really listened to a lot of Symphonic prog rock, but I'd say this album is relatively unique - influence from bands like King Crimson and Yes are present (though not as instrumentally excessive as the latter), but I feel like Änglagård interpreted them in a somewhat different and interesting way. For the most part it's a fairly well written record that's well crafted and wasn't afraid to be playful from time to time. They were pretty good as well when it came to developing their ideas, though the songs overall maybe could've benefitted from being trimmed slightly.
