4 stars This is a very pleasant instrumental psychedelic folk rock album much inspired by early 70's Swedish bands like Kebnekaise but as well with a strong oriental touch. The five, mostly rather extended compositions being in a more sluggish to mid-tempo pace sound relatively gentle with some nice mesmerizing atmosphere but still there's a good portion of electric guitar as well. Simon Krarup Jensen is playing apart from flute also alto sax on "Resor och näsor" where we get as well some vibraphone played by guest musician Klas Assarsson who's providing congas in the track "Blomkrukans sång" in addition. Second guest Camilla Wahlberg plays Tambura in the title track which is heavily inspired by Indian Raga music. Here Jerry Johansson switches from guitar to the more appropriate sitar and he's playing this instrument in a brilliant way I've to say. Usually I'm not that much into classical Indian music but I quite like this one. Though the music gets at times a bit repetitive (especially in the two longest tracks) it's never losing any of its attraction and magic at any moment. Anyway everyone who doesn't mind well played instrumental music which is more in a jam session vein will love this record. I've got it since almost one year in my collection and played it quite often I've to say. Though I'm not quite sure if it can be considered an essential addition in a general sense I'd still round up my rating to 4 stars since it's an excellent one IMHO.
