4 stars Another great band from the mid-70's Norwegian Art-Rock scene. Høst can remind you of a mix of Deep Purple and Genesis with lot's of other influences too. The lyrics are sung in Norwegian and vocalist Geit Jahren does a good job singing them, though the lyrics are somewhat nonsense-ish sometimes. Fezza Ellingsen joined the band after their first release and contributes some really great guitar playing on the songs, backed up with the other musicians playing contributions to the music. The mood on the album is both adventurous and local at the same time, but the album never get's downright boring.

Overall; Great musicians, many great songs, though a couple of weaker ones too. The opener, "Profeters Ord" is the best track. A great and catchy opener that is not easy to dislike if you like 70's prog! I recommend this album strongly to Symphonic Rock/Art Rock fans. It's a bit heavier than most regular prog, but not at all disappointing! 4/5 minimum!

Bj-1 | 4/5 |
