5 stars The first strikes of the song "Kaledoniska Orogenesen" reveal the essence of this record; overwhelmingly chaotic and aggressive jazzy psychedelia with great vintage sounds, harnessed upon firmly designed rock compositions. After some listening I felt that closest match of comparison for this music might could be the Wetton-Cross era King Crimson. As with them, TrettioŚriga Kriget's sound is dominated by a strong and very skillful rhythm section. The bass guitar blasts forth a really fuzzy powerful punch, and the songs have both very structured, and difficult sounding instrumental arrangements and also space for free collective improvisation. And though it is not listed in the line-up data, the good old Mellotrons are hovering behind few tracks for the ultimate old-school heavy emotions. The lyrics are sung in Swedish, strengthening the local freshness on a release matching global scale observation. The overall feeling of the album is very melancholic and violent, still having moments of groovy playing and short shades of beautifulness in it. Some instrumental sequences follow the logic of subconsciousness, molding the album as a surrealistic nightmare, troubling mankind as a real classic art rock record.
