2 stars Sweden seems to be filled with good psychedelic music. Actually I think that the best psychedelic music comes from Sweden. I think that INFRA and The SPACIOUS MIND are in the forefront in this genre. CAULDRON is hailing from the north of Sweden, from a place called Lövånger.

The music is much in the same vein as their fellow countrymen The SPACIOUS MIND or some tracks from the first album by the legendary Swedish band TRÄD, GRÄS OCH STENAR. It's dreamy, spacey, slowly progressing and beautiful.

On the first part of the first song "The Sea / The Road" you can hear the sea rolling against the seashores and the seabirds screams in the sky. The second part takes us to the road, which is very beautiful, and it has got harmonica among other instruments.

The second song is called "The Cathedral" and it's got what we in Sweden call a "Bordun" tone. A "Bordun" tone is an underlying tone that is played in the same key throughout the whole song. I think that the tone is played on a Pump organ. At the end of the song there's a Sitar playing an eastern inspired melody.

On the third song they take us to "The City". The main part of the melody in this one is played on what I think is a Sitar. The last track is "The East / The Dream / The Bliss". The first part has a "Bordun" tone again with a Sitar playing over it. On the second and the third part the "Bordun" tone is still present, but now there's a trumpet and a saxophone taking over the leading melody.

To be honest this isn't an album I will listen to that often. But if you're really into progressive psychedelic music, I think there's a chance that you might like this album, cause it's actually high-class psychedelic.
