Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars I'm a little surprised that there's no written reviews for this one, especially since it has been re-issued on cd at least once since the original album came out in 1973. And I thought for sure that Guldbamsen would have been one of the people to review it since he's from Denmark as well, but to go even further I thought that this might be his favourite record to come out of his great country. Why? Well, it's very humerous, adventerous and filled with personality. Clearly Frank Zappa and possibly SUPERSISTER were influences as this is quite jazzy and Canterbury flavoured. Besides the usual instruments we also get violin, vibes, trumpet, sax, moog, piano, flute, trombone and congas from this rather large band of around ten people or so.

"Opening" is the insane 25 minute suite which is divided into eleven sections, and they throw everything but the kitchen sink at us. Many feel this suite is too "all over the place" and disjointed but this is a top three track for me. It's entertaining if nothing else but to my ears it works. It's catchy to start with bass, vibes, drums, flute and more as the vocals join in. Insanity follows with spoken words then it kicks back in to that catchy sound. Guitar to the fore after 2 1/2 minutes then a drum solo before 4 minutes. A change before 5 1/2 minutes as a beat and horns lead the way. A calm a minute later with percussion and strummed guitar. Flute joins in at 7 minutes. Another change before 9 minutes and this is my least favourite part of the album with the fast paced vocals and sound along with that repetitive guitar melody. Another calm follows after 10 minutes with bass, drums, vibes and a jazzy sound. Keys too followed by horns. Nice section as the vocals join in. l love the guitar sound before 12 minutes and the electric piano that follows. It picks up with vibes and more. This is catchy and fun as the vocals and horns also join in. Hilarious vocals 15 minutes in, too funny. It then kicks back in with bass, vibes and horns. They're jamming now. The flute plays over top around 19 minutes in. Some strange laughter then what sounds like clavinet kicks in. A catchy section arrives after 21 minutes. So much going on, so many intricate sounds. Impressive! Vocals are back late to end it.

"Samelam- Samelam" is another catchy piece with horns, drums, guitar and bass standing out instrumentally. The vocals will come and go and the organ comes in late. "Entrees" features plenty of vibes and horns in this instrumental. "Spring- Time- Summer- Theme" is an energetic jam full of vibes, piano, drums, horns and more. I like this better than the previous instrumental. Catchy stuff and a top three for me. "In The Morning" is my final top three, in fact it's my favourite song on here. This has to be influenced by CARAVAN, this sounds so much like a CARAVAN track it's not funny, so uplifting. Even the vocals remind me of that great band. There's a flute solo half way through. It sucks that it's only 2 minutes long though. "Desserts: Flower- Picking- Prelude" opens with piano, bass, horns, drums and more. It picks up before a minute as the flute joins in but the tempo will change often. It becomes more determined a minute later with horns over top. Lots of percussion here as well. The guitar comes in lighting it up but it stops before 6 minutes as we get another change. The tempo picks up here and we get silly vocal melodies and more. Piano and the sound of birds ends it.

What a talented band, and they certainly had a lot of great ideas. A Prog lover's delight in my opinion. A solid 4 stars.
