3 stars I bought the Mellotronen reissue of this, when it just had been released in 2003. The original vinyl released 1972 was a double LP with the second LP being a live recording from Powerhouse in Örebro, Sweden. If I'm not wrong it was sold for the price of just a regular LP. Nowadays it's not so cheap anymore.

Fläsket is instrumental Prog Rock, guitar driven with lots of saxophone and flute. The only song with lyrics is "Anderssons Groove", sung in swedish but I can assure you that it's not important or particulary beautiful lyrics, but quite funny. The song ask the question why we have to be so private when we're on the toilet when we know that everybody else also haveto do the same. Highlights are "Klotet", "Batum" and "Beate Hill".

The second LP is as mentioned a live one. Here they use the basic Rock set up of two guitars, bass and drums. Lots of improvisations, especially the last track "Örsprånget", clocking in around fifteen minutes. They also do some songs from their first album and a song claimed to be a tango, funny enough.

Overall a decent album, not anything spectacular and the live album can be a bit repetitive at times. Fläsket Brinne had humour though, and that's positive!

Frasse | 3/5 |
