Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars This is an upgrade over the last album "One More Slice" and the lineup stays the same except for the addition of Nina Dahl who adds some flute. To my ears this is better than "Room For Surprise", more dynamic. Another nice album cover, these guys pick such beautiful paintings to represent their music.

"Hold Your Ground" opens with the sounds of waves before synths and organ join in. It kicks in around a minute with some good guitar in tow. Vocals after 1 1/2 minutes. Now the vocals are not their strongest suit but i've grown to accept them. I love the raw guitar after 5 1/2 minutes that goes on and on. "The River Of The Dog" opens with organ as drums and guitar join in. Vocals a minute in. Great sound after 2 minutes I really like the instrumental work here. "Just A Little Bit More Time" is possibly my favourite. It opens with piano as vocals then flute joins in. It's more powerful after 2 minutes. Themes are repeated in this one. "The Bogeyman (Part 2)" opens with a sample of children playing before the music invades the soundscape. It settles with vocals. The guitar before 5 1/2 minutes is great as the organ runs.This is so good ! "Velvet Night" opens with floating organ as piano and picked guitar help out. Reseved vocals join in this pastoral soundscape. It gets fuller as contrasts continue. I really like the fuller sections. Nice guitar solo 3 1/2 minutes in.

"Touched By The Fire" opens with flute and atmosphere. Vocals with guitar join in. This gets pretty dark when the organ takes the lead. A good heavy sound after 1 1/2 minutes.Themes are repeated. Check out the guitar after 4 minutes and the powerful sound that follows. "There's An Angel" features soaring guitar as drums beat then vocals and keys come in.The guitar and organ really shine in this one. "This One Will Make Us Rich" has lots of prominant bass in the intro. Drums join in. Nice. Love the bass here ! The guitar stars to solo 3 minutes in as drums, organ and bass support. The chirping of birds ends it. "Silence Reigns" opens with acoustic guitar and vocals in this mellow intro. Flute joins in before synths,drums and a fuller sound. It kicks in at 2 1/2 minutes. Contrasts continue.This is good ! Some nice lazy guitar 5 minutes in goes on and on becoming quite passionate.

There's something genuine and unique about this band (hey they call themselves Fruitcake). It would be easy to dismiss them after one listen but that would be a shame. This is my favourite album by them.

3 stars This record could easily get a five star review, but a magnificient instrumental structure (funky prog?) is spoiled by an awful vocal treatment. Päl Sovik should have realized this fact and given the job to someone else. ... (read more)
