5 stars One of the greatest assets - if not the greatest one - to Scandinavian prog during last years. Unfortunately all their studio works were originally released on cassettes, this format is now almost dead. But the good news is that recently Pancromatic reissued their debut album as a double vinyl with a lot of bonus tracks from their second studio album and the split album with Breidablik, plus a few previously unreleased songs. Another good news is that the band has a page on Soundcloud where most of their tracks can be listened to. Their music is very complex, sophisticated, inventive, unpredictable and - on the other hand - very soft, melodic and comfortable, I'd say cozy. They follow not only the traditions of Scandinavian prog scene, but also the traditions of old English school, first of all Egg of the Egg/The Polite Force period. At least some of Jordsjo's musical paths started from A Visit To Newport Hospital. Maybe they are not innovators, but surely very well crafted composers, arrangers and players. What they do is not an aromorphosis in the evolution of prog music, but surely aerobatics of idioadaptation.
