From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars On this occasion, the incrdedible swedish duo (along with some of their collaboators) brings one of their best recordings, not only because of the great musicianship displayed from the beginning to the end, but also because the result is somehow accessible for non-iniciated in the band and, to a further extent, newcomers on the most modern side of jazz rock. The references are the same as ever: modern jazz rock, improvisations, zappaism, avant, R.I.O., chamber music, and also pop performances appear on a record that has all the elements not to upset the listener. And so it is.

The great combination of musical adventures ("Här Kommer Bodd", "Täljes Logan",the fascinating "Fialka´s House", "Blobb", "Sigfrid") along with their particular approach to pop songs, ("Forest Man", "Darling, Darling" or "Djungle Man" are some examples of extremely risky pop compositions) gives them a very particular feeling (including some weirdness in "Beside the Swamp" or "Kul I Parken"). Besides these tracks, the best music of the record undoubtedly, there are also other minor tracks ( "Bangladesh Shuttzpa", "Ossians Hund" or the live "Radio Da Da", actually not very well recorded), a drum solo (quite original indeed "Svarta Kusen Solos") that don´t add much to the record on the whole

The result is a record that combines, as very few bands nowadays do, some of the extremisms of avantgarde with the charm and delicacy of jazz, pop and chamber music. Maybe some of the very hardcore fans of the genre would consider it as a light record, but for the rest of the people, it is a very interesting and reccomendable record to start discovering this fantastic band. 4 stars (those little tracks stop me from rating it with 5 stars)
