Prog Reviewer
4 stars This record could be described as melancholic music with mellotron and a great female vocalist. I really like the first song "Sensor", I feel Petronella's vocals are best suited in a song like this where she can let go as it were, instead of almost speaking when she sings.The drummer is great on this one, as are the former LANDBERK guitar players (Dimle & Fiske). "Hypnotique" has a line at the start that says "I'm a flower-smell me". I smile everytime I hear that. Twice in my truck i've had this song on when other people were with me, and both times they've laughed at that lyric. By the way both times they were females.

"Tea" makes up for it though, it has a bit of an ANEKDOTEN feel to it, lots of mellotron, my favourite off of this record. "They Are Beautiful" begins with accoustic guitar and clarinet, that builds a little from the pastoral mood. "Quits" has a drum and bass sound that is quite poppy, and is almost a dance tune about breaking up with your partner. The song ends in a prolonged Jazz improv (hey, that's what I hear).

So a good record that I can recommend. I love the Swedish melancholy. I think i'd rate "Kallocain" a little higher though.
