3 stars Beautiful melancholy.

It's about time I got around to reviewing this great band Anekdoten, hailing from none other than modern prog capital of the world, Sweden. Here, the edges have softened a bit and Anekdoten gives probably their most accessible release, but it is still as much intriguing as previous releases, although overall quality is down.

My favorite song is What Should But Did Not Die and the jangly guitar section around 4 minutes in which is quite interesting, especially with the washboard effects in the background (noticeable but difficult to hear on first listen). The title track is enjoyable as well as the song after it, with many noticeable references that have already been listed.

A nice little album, but lacks some of the depth on previous releases and as ST has mentioned, theres that cello that's absent. Check out some of their other releases for more acclaimed and better material.
