3 stars Svanfridur, this obscure band hailing from Island and having only one album released in 1972 and re issued in 1995 by Background records. Good album heavy prog meets psychedelic moments with some folk elements here and there. Well, I don't think is quite of one of the greatest albums from that period, but is a worthy one, keeping in mind that is coming from Island a land that was not an oasis of prog bands like Scandinavian ones. Some forte tracks are Please bend with some great violin added in the heavy psych atmosphere, nice moog provided by guest Sigurdur Johnsson, another forte is the title track a folkish piece with beautiful voice, really nice. All in all a fair good album, that desearves attention from both prog listners and those who are more towads the psychedelic side of the genre. Those you have the CD will get the full cover art in the booklet , what an amazing drawing, really fantastic. I will give 3.5 stars if possible, more then 3 but not nearly a 4, some parts reminf me of Jethro Tull Stand up period, nice flute here and there. Nice album for that period but I don't think is a groundbreaking one by any means.
