5 stars In the early Nineties it seemed that deep in the Skaninavian woods the elusive trolls made lots of Mellotrons for many KING CRIMSON-inspired progrock bands that suddenly emerged in that era (ANGLAGARD, ANEKDOTEN, WHITE WILLOW). One of the first was LANDBERK, their debut-album "Loneley Land" from 1992 is still of my most beloved Mellotron-soaken albums. Don't expect virtuosic guitar play, dazzling keyboard runs or stunning interplay. On this album each of the seven atmospheric compositions has its own climate, from rock and folk to sympho and psychedelia with many waves of the Mellotron, moving guitar work (sensitive, fragile or heavy) and strong vocals (Laser's Edge has a English version and Mellotronen a Swedish version). Listen to "No More White Horses" with its raw and expressive sound and then to the very moving "You and I" with warm acoustic guitar and emotional Mellotron splashes and you capture the spirit of LANDBERK: painting with sound like Vincent van Gogh did on canvas, a very intense and unique emotional experience!
