Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars This isn't my first experience with this Swedish band as I've reviewed their 2004 release called "Pyrola" which I felt at the time was a low 4 stars. This EP was released in 2000 and features three tracks and 19 minutes worth of music. I found it interesting that their latest release from 2014 is a compilation album of rare and unreleased tracks including the final two tracks on this EP. Heck even the title of that compilation is called "Glancing Madly Backwards" which is the English title of the second song on this EP called "Dansar Galet Bakat", and to go further that track is a cover of the CAPTAIN BEYOND song.

The first two songs don't do much for me to be honest. "An Lyser Manen" has a nice heavy sound as vocal melodies arrive quickly them Swedish vocals. Suddenly it turns into a Reggae groove as the vocals continue. Vocal melodies are back before 2 minutes as themes are repeated.

"Dansar Galet Bakat" has kind of a STRAY CATS vibe which I really don't like. Thankfully it turns into a rocker as Swedish vocals continue.

"Ogenblick" is what makes this EP worth getting. A 10 1/2 minute track that opens with a fairly heavy groove but slower paced as the vocals join in. It picks up before 1 1/2 minutes. I like the bass, keys and drums as it slows back down just before 2 minutes. Vocals are back and man I like the sound here. So good! Themes are repeated over the 10 1/2 minutes. A keeper!

It was interesting to hear something from earlier in their careers but this really is not essential at all. In hindsight I would grab the latest compilation album instead.
