5 stars Änglagård can be appreciated in many ways.

Many marvel at their grand debut Hybris, followed by the equally grand Epilog, followed - guess what - by 18 years of hibernation, followed by the grandissimo.crescendo of Viljans Öga. I don't think anyone else has ever done it.

Others appreciate the unique hybrid subgenre they have developed .. I can't think of a good name for it, maybe "electric analog classical music"? You need to be really, really good musician to master this genre.

Unless PA ratings are inaccurate, most of us admire Änglagård for the superb musicianship, matched by equally immaculate sound quality and attention to detail.

As for my own Book of Prog, there Änglagård have scored yet another couple of points for "not making a less-than-stellar album in 20 years". An additional benefit could be that any of the three Änglagård albums consists of pure, neat, unadulterated 100% musical essence. Sit through any of their 15-min track and you'll likely find that every second of it has its place, gracefully fits into the narrative, and makes perfect sense in the context of the composition. Now, this is something!

Viljans Öga (along with their previous albums) is definitely one of the absolutely finest works of symphonic classical prog.
