4 stars The mystery of this Jorm group continues in 1975.They start digging deep into the Symphonic Rock territory and the line-up changes were possibly a good reason for this.Stefan Hackman and Tony Kajblom were replaced by new guitarist Stefan Holmer and talented keyboardist Rickard Vakman.The album ''A theory of anything'' was reputedly released during April 75', although it marked another commercialy failed and underground attempt by Jorm.

True or false, these historic notes on bandcamp lead the listener to experience a stunning album in a Classic Symphonic Rock vein with more than evident YES similarities and strong links with the music of KAIPA and DICE.Much more balanced, competent and progressive than Jorm's debut, ''A theory of anything'' is a work filled with lush arrangements, Classical-drenched keyboard themes and pompous, instrumental sections with a very rich sound.Unoriginal but impressive musicianship with excellent guitar moves, acoustic breaks, a few flute lines and, above all, marvelous keyboard colors with Mellotrons, organ, moog synths and even piano and flute strings.Long, elaborate tracks, characterized by good melodies, dreamy keyboards interludes and outros, bombastic passages and quirky guitar work.And there is even some nice Scandinavian vibes, especially in the 10-min. ''Newspeak'', which sounds somewhere between KEBNEKAISE, YES and KAIPA, containing psychedelic and jazzy influences next to the casual symphonic overtones.The absolute highlight though is the 28-min. titletrack, a long, beautiful Symphonic Rock piece with enough complexity, moving textures, Classical underlines and everchanging climates.The second part of the album, obviously inspired by YES, is the definite peak of an othewise very strong album, with the guitar work of Holmer shining through.

File next to KAIPA, YES, FLAME DREAM and similar-sounding groups.Solid, tight and challenging Symphonic Rock of an underground identity, deserving a wider exposure.Highly recommended.

— First review of this album —
3 stars A mysterious group from Sweden, that started offering its albums via bandcamp during the 00's, but appears to have its roots in the 70's.Their self-titled debut was released in 1973, according to the band's notes, and the track ''And that is why you should remain content'' was even released as a single.By the time the line-up consisted of Jonathan Andersson on vocals, flute and acoustic guitars, Christian Skogh on bass, Stefan Hackman on lead guitar, Tony Kajblom on keyboards and Billy Brunflo on drums.

The truth is that the recording quality is reminiscent of a 70's album with a muddy but listenable production supporting Jorm's music.The style is a melodic Psychedelic Proto-Prog with some BEATLES-esque vocal harmonies flavored with pure Symphonic Rock in the vein of GENESIS and YES.Some tracks have a lovely and nostalgic late-60's vibe with acoustic guitars, organ and melodic vocals in the forefront, although the electric solos and some use of synths give the impression the band already was moving towards a more demanding direction.There are plenty of symphonic-oriented arrangements with some beautiful keyboard parts, light flute work and catchy melodies, while the guitar playing becomes more complicated and the structures more adventurous, characterized by excellent switches between Mellotron, organ and synthesizers and long, dreamy instrumental themes.The Classical influence is also obvious in a few keyboard parts, while the more orchestral pieces are flirting also with THE MOODY BLUES sound.The result is an album full of pleasant, vintage nuances and enough complexity to reward the Progressive Rock fan ,they sometimes remind me of another long forgotten Swedish act, SUSPEKT ASPEKT.

It is never late to discover another overlooked, retro-styled Progressive Rock album.''Jorm'' is exactly that and the bandcamp post of this work gives you a really good chance to listen to their great music.Recommended, especially if you are deep into the Classic Prog era.
