4 stars Swedish composer and musician Lars HOLLMER is a well known name in progressive rock circles. Especially amongst dedicated fans of RIO, a movement Hollmer was a founding member of. Besides that his tenure in Samla Mammas Mamma is perhaps what most people will remember him for, as well as his solo productions and collaborations for some 30 odd years. "With Floury Hands: Sketches" is a posthumous production, released by the US label Cuneiform Records four years following Hollmer passing away due to cancer.

"With Floury Hands" is a production that easily merits a description as something else. A collection of more or less worked through ideas and some songs that appear to have been completed, carefully assembled four years after the death of the creator. The accompanying DVD, while of high quality, feature contents of a somewhat limited overall appeal, I guess. As such there's not much here that will appeal broadly. Existing fans of Hollmer and those with a taste for the unusual and uncommon will find plenty of interesting material however, and as long as you are aware of the context of this production it is a highly recommended one to this select audience.
