4 stars Dun were a pretty unique band. Armed with great talent and creativity, they set out to release a stunning work in 1981, when most other prog bands had at least one leg crossing over to other genres. Their music is dense, detail-oriented and yet sounds chaotic at times although I'm convinced they deliberately decided to play every second of their music they did and it wasn't a jam. The first track is breathtaking, moog, flute, drums, bass and guitar presenting a tough mix of prog, avantgarde and fusion motives. The second track "Arrakis" is a relief in intensity featuring flute and a beautiful melancholic motive where a Scandinavian band wouldn't be ashamed before borrowing a point or two from Zappa's fusion times. "Eros" is arguably the most experimental and non-accessible track that drums bring together despite incoherent themes and soloing. It's not the best track to me but showing another characteristics of the album. Highly recommended to very demanding fans who can attentively listen to the album to find nuances upon repeated listens.
