Review by erik neuteboom
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars This album is good news for the fans of melodic symphonic rock with tasteful keyboards and flowing electric guitar. The first two songs remind me of German band Eloy: a slow rhythm with flowing Floydian electric guitar, wonderful mellow keyboards (piano, string- machine) and a blend of acoustic rhytm guitar and senstitive electric guitar in "Suicide" and many shifting moods with great Grand piano play (evoking the good days of Procol Harum), tender flute and powerful electric guitar, halfway an accellaration with fiery electric guitar runs in "Recall The Future". The third song "Resan Till Ixtlan" is a solo piece on the Grand piano, very beautiful. Other highlights on this very melodic and warm album are "Liv I Stad Utan Liv" (Banks-like organ, Swedish vocals and a compelling end with howling eelctric guitar and beautiful strings) and Kharma 74 (an elaborate and varied song with majectic piano work and fiery saxophone and electric guitar). This CD is a wonderful discovery from Sweden!

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions
3 stars Mr. Brown comes from Sweden ...

What I know there is existing only one album from this band. Hard to believe and it would be very interesting to be informed about what the band members did afterwards. MR. BROWN combines several styles like folk, psych and symphonic and therefore is hard to categorize. The music is creative, composed and played very professional right down to the last detail but could be a little more edgy IMO. Undeniable, they are Influenced by other bands of this period. Guitars are acoustic in the majority but also dreamy electric, we have very symphonic keys around and the vocals are in english and native swedish.

Suicide has a nice melody and some similarities to PINK FLOYD, very relaxed with saxophon and acoustic/electric guitar. Recall The Future is a highlight of the eight songs. Typical for this album with permanent changes between rocking and mellow parts. This song remembers much at BO HANSSON. Universe is also to point out, a short and very nice song with wonderful vocals. SUPERTRAMP couldn't make it better. With the semi-acoustic I'll arise the album closes and MR. BROWN shows his singer/songwriter qualities. One of those songs which are not really spectacular to me.

As for a summary this album is consisting of very nice Prog (light) songs - 3.5 stars are well deserved.

Review by ClemofNazareth
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk Researcher
2 stars It still amazes me that bands like this managed to form, record, release records and disappear with so little left behind besides the music. I’ve checked for biographies or other projects from everyone in this band to no avail. I can tell you that Håkan Andersson went on to win three Stanley Cups with the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League; Bo Carlberg is a cardiologist at Umea University Hospital in Sweden; Kjell Johnsson is head of Denel Saab Aerostructures in South Africa; Lars Meding writes jingles for companies who publish language-learning materials; Anders Nilsson is a professional drag-car racer; Jan Peter Stråhle is a mechanical engineer in Germany; and Rovert Svensson is a professional golfer.

Okay, you have me - none of them do those things. And no – those people aren’t the same guys as the ones who were in this band. That was the best I could do surfing the web to find information about this album though. Really odd. Usually at least one or two members of even obscure seventies progressive bands end up in some other band of note at some point. But not these guys, or if any of them did they must have changed their names.

But on the other hand this isn’t a pivotal paragon of progressive purity either, so maybe that played into the equation a bit. The trappings of seventies music are here, it’s just that none of it is new, a lot of it isn’t progressive, and most has obvious roots in the band’s various influences (Pink Floyd, Ambrosia, even Tom Petty). Props for the album cover though – is that guy’s head what I think it is?

This album apparently was originally released in 1977, just on the outer edge of the decade in which new progressive music could still get published and supported. These guys just missed that boat. There are several CD versions available today, but I believe the 2006 Transubstans disc is the only ‘legitimate’ one. Transubstans describes the music as “symphonic prog in the same school as Focus and Swedish legends Kaipa and with a singer that's been compared with bigshots like Justin Hayward, Roger Waters and Bob Dylan”. Don’t be fooled. There are snippets of Pink Floyd, particularly in the keyboards on “Universe”, but I don’t think that qualifies as a valid Roger Waters comparison. Not sure where the Justin Hayward reference came from unless it is for the brief piano snippet “Tornet” that might be construed as sounding just a little bit Moody Blues-like in the same way that any female folk singer sounds just a little bit Sandy Denny-like, but nothing more. Kaipa was a similar type of band that made accessible music with symphonic rock leanings but an overall mainstream feel, so that is not an untrue claim by the label. And I guess Focus refers to “Kharma 74” which I could see being considered Focus-like, but just barely.

Actually if I had to point to another band to describe this one I think I would choose the Flower Kings. Not that Mr. Brown sounds a whole lot like them, but there seems to be the same spirit of acknowledging seventies prog dinosaurs by emulating their sounds in an easily digestible, almost AOR format. These guys just did it while the real progressive bands were still in existence as opposed to fifteen years later.

There are some vocals but not a lot, and those are a mix of Swedish ones I can’t understand and English ones that aren’t too clever or meaningful. On “Liv I Stad Utan Liv” there’s even some soundboard-manipulated harmonizing that sounds a bit like a horror movie soundtrack, but one of those satire horror films like ‘Another Teen Movie’. There is some decent guitar on that track though.

In all this is an average offering from a forgotten band who’s reissued CD is overpriced in my opinion. Unless you really have a hankering for discovering unheard of seventies bands, I’d recommend skipping on this one. Two stars and tepidly recommended to really serious collectors.

peace

3 stars 3.5 realy

Mr Brown is an obscure progressive rock band comeing from Sweden. They release a single album in 1977 named Mellan tr Ogon and re released at label Transubstans in 2006. I was pleasently surprised obout this album, nice compositions, even in places are a little forced, good musicianship and enjoyble overall album. Mr Brown plays a hibrid between symphonic prog like Atlas or Kaipa and folk a la Kaamos with a touch of Focus in places, with nice flute elements , great guitar interplayand some very good keyboards elements From time to time some space moments are interluded very smooth between symphonic arrangem,ents, that gives a special atmosphere and a typical swedish sound. The best pieces are the spacey Universe - excellent pieces, Tornet - a track who sounds like a church choir - impressive piece, under one min, but what a atmosphere gives this tune and last track I'll arise, a good piece with vocals in english, the album alternats between pieces with voice and a lot of instrumental passages. So, for this unknown band and album I will give 3 solid stars. One of the pleasently albums from Sweden from late'70's. Great cover art, and funy inside booklet drawings.

4 stars It wasn't until the early 90's before Sweden made an important step onto the progressive rock map. Bands such as Änglagård, Landberk, Anekdoten and later on The Flower Kings were largely responsible for what some people like to refer to as "The third wave of progressive rock". In the 70's, when ... (read more)

4 stars Although the genre was winding down by this time, 1977 was still a great year for Progressive Rock. Unfortunately, we are discovering most of it almost 30+ years later. With the advent of the internet, many of these long lost gems of 70's Progressive Rock are resurfacing and although some would ... (read more)
