4 stars Finnish fan organization Colossus has been actively inaugurating and releasing a number of different projects for the last decade or so, and while the majority of them have been elaborate productions paying tribute to influential movies, movie creators or other contributors to the world of culture they have also crafted a fair few releases honouring artists influential on today's purveyors of art rock, emphasizing ones with a Scandinavian origin. "Rokstenen" is one of these creations, and on this occasion it is the Swedish progressive rock artists of the 70's who are honoured by those who more or less have followed in their tracks.

The cooperative projects instigated and crafted by the Finnish prog association Colossus and subsequently released and distributed by Musea Records are known for their high quality, and "Rokstenen" is among the best of the lot I have encountered. A joy to become familiar with in itself, and those with an interest in or curiosity concerning Swedish progressive rock from the 70's better note down this item on their must-get list. As it was released in 2009 and in a limited set of physical copies, those who desire the CD box set with the customary thick, detailed booklet better hurry if they'd like to add this one to their collection, though.
