5 stars From the quirky album cover to the wonderful music, Eldberg is a band not to be missed. This debut album is a gem of progressive rock ! Their music would clearly not have looked out of place in the early 70s, since it's heavily hammond organ-based. The keyboardist does an amazing job at capturing the essence of the 70s prog rock in that regard, his playing is beyond par. The other musicians, from the drummer to the guitarist are also quite amazing, and very delicate.

Though Eldberg sounds like a mix of Genesis, Yes, Camel and modern-day Beardfish, Eldberg has managed to creat its own identity in between the set boundaries of "classic prog". Plus, it's so refreshing to hear music from the golden days of prog, but made in 2011.

All songs are wonderful, so I'll just bring your attention to the ending part of 'EEg er lkfsins braus' which is a...'particular' rendition of "Child in Time", my favorite song of Deep Purple. And to the final "epic" 14-min song, which in its middle part picks up with an upbeat jazzy tune with wonderful organ and guitar...

Eldberg, I'm eagerly awaiting for your next album.
