3 stars Third album of this intristing band from Norway and final one aswell before disbanding in early this decade. The album released in summer of 1999 named Strange in stereo is a real strange album belive me, not every day I have the chance to listen to such quirky but in same time very well produce and well played album from this field. Surprise is , I don't realy think this is better then previous work who was an oustanding release, This time In the woods turn even more to ghotic sound, the metal elements are aswell here but in less quantity. Even the voice is a little bit less intristing then on Omnio, but good. The musicianship is ok, but the band now run out of great ideas, they try to bring it to the same level of Omnio, but thet don't quite succeded on every piece. From all 11 piece only half are for real intrest, the other half are between good and in places even some mediocre arrangements. So I will not go with the crowd by saying this is a masterpiece or close, is a good album but nothing more. I prefer 100 times more Omnio. Anyway this Strange in stereo is another worthy album by this norvegian band but less captivating than before. 3 stars , nothing more, nothing less, still intristing in places..
