3 stars What a beautiful name for a progrock band in which two members are mentioned as playing the unsurpassed Mellotron, unfortunately only in two songs and not really omnipresent. The focus is on the Fender Rhoed electric piano, caressing our ears whith its very distinctive sound in most of the tracks. A strong point in Gosta Berlings Saga their music is the interplay between the guitar and keyboards but I am also impressed by the subtle shifting moods and creative musical ideas. This makes listening to this Swedish progrock band to a special experience because it sounds quite orignal with jazzy undertones and a tasteful colouring by instruments like the flute, slide-guitar, violin, some spectacular synthesizer work and a few Mellotron waves.

If you like instrumental prog with an adventurous touch and the accent on melodies and harmony, this is a fine album to check out. My rating: 3,5 stars.
