4 stars First excellent album from Swedish band LOTUS. The band plays a type of jazz-fusion prog of easy listening with well elaborate instrumental passages. Probably this 'easy listening' effect be due to the fact that although is a jazz fusion band, their sonority is plenty of energy, and besides this they demonstrate some latin music hints in the style of CARLOS SANTANA , a bit of FRANK ZAPPA moods and in certain moments I feel sharply a proximity to hard rock in the WISHBONE ASH ( this last trace due the presence of 2 guitars which plays sometimes in unison sometimes in counterpoint ... a good example as in track 5 "Mac") another possible influence is the rhythm blues in the molds of THE ALMAN BROTHERS BAND ( listen track 2 "Bonnalåt"). The track 7 "Ungersk Dans" brings some "hints' of R.I.O something very common in Swedish bands like Kultivator and (of course) SAMLA MAMMAS MANNA. The best moments are : Track 1 "Eelass-Ooles" , 5 "Bonnalåt", 7 "Ungersk Dans" already mentioned and Track 8 "Gatta Gatta". My rate is 4 stars !!!
