4 stars Looks like i'm not the only one on this site who feels the debut is better than this the more popular follow-up. After the success of the debut they bought a mellotron (yay) and some better instruments then played some live gigs before recording "Inget Nytt Under Solen".There is mellotron on three of the six tracks.

"Skenet Bedrar" is a side long suite at close to 22 minutes. It's the kind of track that doesn't really grab you right away but I think it is a success. Faint spacey sounds to start that begin to build some.Vocals before 3 minutes as it continues to be laid back. A GENESIS flavour before 7 minutes as the organ pulsates. Nice chunky bass to follow as the guitar solos over top. It then settles back down before picking back up after 10 minutes. Some in your face vocals from the drummer follows with piano.The tempo picks up before 13 minutes with fat bass lines and more. Reserved vocals before 14 minutes as it calms right down. A calm with deep spoken words 19 1/2 minutes in brings the song to an end.

"Omson Sken" opens with keyboards and atmosphere. Reserved vocals after a minute. A calm with vibes only ends it. "Korstag" features prominant bass and keyboards. Mellotron too. Just a great sounding instrumental. "Stengrodornas Parad" is a short humerous tune with a circus vibe. "Dagens Port" opens with reserved vocals and piano. It picks up with synths, then the vocals and piano return but it's a lot fuller than the intro. "Inget Nytt Under Solen" sounds excellent with passionate vocals. Huge bass lines when the vocals stop.The tempo picks up too. It settles right back down 2 1/2 minutes in with reserved vocals. When the vocals stop the guitar comes in leading the way tastefully. Nice.

A good album that I thought would be better. Still I can't give it less than 4 stars.
