3 stars I do not know how many times I've listened to "Lastbrygga" and "Kullens fyr" and everytime I am blown away with the jazzy grooves of these two amazing tracks. Lindh's flute and electric piano are excellent in every way and always performed in a flawless fashion on every recording of his.

The music could be described as late 60's, early 70's movie soundtracks with it's kind of minimalistic grooves and funky jazz rock. At least that is true in the two tracks previously mentioned. For me that is musical heaven. It is something truly mesmerizing about that sound.

While "Lastbrygga" and "Kullens fyr" are excellent pieces of music the tracks inbetween are pleasent but not really to my taste. They are a bit too similar in sound, I find. The album is framed in the two groovy jazz rock tracks while the main body consists of more mellow pieces. I have always thought that the album would have done better if Lindh put one more groovy track in the middle, making it a more varied album.

Conclusion: "Ramadan" is a good but non-essential album. While the first and last track are brilliant the middle pieces are kind of lost to me. Not bad, just not that interesting. Pleasant but not outstanding in any way. I do urge you, though, to listen to the two tracks I have mentioned. They are excellent and shows the scandinavian jazz rock at it's finest.

I did memorize every track of this album - th ... (read more)
