Cry

i have just recently tracked them down but their music is special and really something that anyone who is interested in the birth of Swedish and Finnish prog should listen to


but who do you fancy more of these two individual prog legends, who touch your soul the most and who have laid its tightest grip on prog rocks legacy of these two

I've only got Pekka's album that was packed as a Mike Oldfield album over here, but I still like it better than the three Bo's.

For me it's between Attic Thoughts and Sagan Om Ringen which i believe translated means "Hard work never killed anybody,but why take the chance".

I stand corrected but Sagan Om Ringen is the Swedish translation for Lord Of The Rings. Attic Thoughts...hmm beautiful!

Bo for me. Partially for his Lord of the Rings album - at times not a heap like what I imagined as a soundtrack to LOTR, but always evocative.

I should have sussed that. Embarrassed
I have that one. 

So, what should be my next Pekka to try?  With three Bo's I should balance it out, eh?

I'm a bit indifferent about both.  Pohjola has good compositions, but they sound a bit lifeless to me and lack atmosphere.  Hansson's music has a great vibe, but it can get boring after a few minutes.
