1 stars Kaipa previous album was not really great to say the least. Partially AOR oriented it still held some symphonic and pleasant tracks. I have to admit that this album features even less interesting songs (actually none).

This album is more electro-pop oriented and I have to say that if I didn't really liked Mats Löfgren lead vocals on their previous two albums, I can't stand at all the one of Hans Ludin here. His role should be confined to what he's doing best: keyboards playing. Period. To be convinced, just have a listen to the dreadful title track. But I would recommend you to press the magical key: NEXT.

This album has NOTHING to do with symphonic prog. Of course, "Kaipa" is not the first one to have changed from musical direction during his life cycle. And it hurts. Just as it hurt with lots of other bands. To name them all would be a real hell of a job but you get the idea.

This album is a pitiful effort which is absolutely useless IMHHO. The worst being probably achieved with "Zepapo". In all honesty, I can't find a single good track. "Nattdjurstid" is just a juxtaposition of poor songs even if once in a while there are some better aspects ("Identitetskris").

You shouldn't really bother with this album. Their first three studio albums were far much more enjoyable. This one is only painful. From "Galen" (the opening track) to "Våntar En Storm", the closing one.

One star. Vocals are really UNBEARABLE.
