4 stars This is my first review! The Swedish band Kaipa is among my top favourite bands in symphonic prog. They are mainly inspired by Genesis and Yes. Their fisrt album "Kaipa" is full of charm and posetive naivism, typical of the seventies:) The texts is simply wonderful, but are in swedish, meaning just a few of you can understand them of course, but they are translated into english on the cd-versions. The music flows in a romantic kind of style, painting lots of different moods with wide colours. The very young guitarist Roine Stolt had just joined the band which leader were (and still is) the keyboard-player Hans Lundin. He had a band called "Ura-Kaipa" prior to this and when Roine joined, they canged their name into "Kaipa". In some ways this debut (very succesful in Sweden at the time) reminds me of Genesis "Trespass", in it's naivisism and skillfull "amateur/professional" muscisienship, if you know what I mean:). Higlly recommended to romantics and others:)
