5 stars The best progressive album from Sweden? Well, I tend to agree. Or rather, know it is. At least as far as the 70's is concerned. There are otther great bands from Sweden but none as great as Trettioåriga Kriget was on this album. I came across it in a little recordstore about 20 years ago and loved it right from the start.

In Sweden there was a strong political agenda associated with prog (or progg, as it is known). There were many bands, not all musically gifted. Alot of bands were actually musically challenged, if you wish. Trettioåriga Kriget was a band of great musicianship and brilliance, never as evident as on Krigssång, still retaining the political message of socialism.

The musical content (with it's very prominent bass) is amazing. Not only in the playing but more so in the songs themselves. It is a blend of hard rock, symphonic and fusion like stuff. I think of Stanley Clarke, sometimes, and maybe I am not that far off. Stanley Clarke playing in Rush, could be a comparison not straying too far off the mark.

From the first second to the last, this album delivers in spades and keeps on being spellbinding. This is a masterful and epic creation, worthy of praise and recognition. Listen and be amazed.
