4 stars 4.5 stars for sure

The sophomore album of this excellent band from Iceland released this year in march and named Par Er Heimur Hugans is a little treasure and a very worthy album to investigate. If the debut was a great one, in my opinion this second offer tops it, to me is one of the better albums released in last yesrs. The music offered is keeping the same attitude as on debut , heavy prog with psychedelic aproach, quite original, intresting and damn fine composed. Good and captivating moments here on all pieces, not a weak moment for sure, the hammond is very strong keeping a high level and melted with the guitar is absolutly killer. Very good the druming, not overly complex but very well performed, the voice is great aswell. All pieces has same level, not one is in front, is a very good thing that Eldberg were concentrated to make all pieces strong not only 2-3 like one many albums from today. The sound is retro, it smelling of early '70s prog/psychedelic with an add of that unmatch brilliant nordic feel to it. The lyrics are in icelandic, and is a good thing because it gives to originality a higher level. very very strong band this Eldberg, to me is for sure one of the most intresting ones in last decade, I'm saying with my hand on heart that they are to me in top 5 fav ones ever, I was really pleasent surprised by both albums. A plus is .th excellent cover art in inside drawing, digipak format issued by chilean Mylodon label. recommended, captivating and intresting heavy psych. One of the best from this year and to me nr 1 for 2015 for sure. 4.5 stars without hesitation.
