4 stars This is an interesting piece of retro prog. It has a very early-seventies sound, dominated by the old Hammond organ sound. In fact, my first impression was that this band was building on Deep Purple's sound. But in retrospect, they are far more progressive than DP ever was.

The songs often have a prog folk feel, with some delicate guitars, and lighter keyboards that float about, until the bombastic Hammond joins in to beef up the sound. While I don't understand a word of the lyrics (I presume they are sung in Icelandic), I find all of the songs to be enjoyable, in a nostalgic way.
