4 stars I love intrumental music, especially when it's borderline-chaotic.

I knew this band only name, but thanks to Spotify, music is much closer to home, than back in the days when I was younger and had little money to spend.

The music of G'sta Berlings Saga is much lighter than Anekdoten, but follows the same path. Heavily inspired by 70's symphonic rock but with a bit of modern-day stoner and altrock influences. They band also reminds me a bit of the instrumental side of Beadfish.

It has a spacey feel, but it's not a jamband purely jamming away without a plan. There are loads of melodies, hooklines and musical stories throughout their music, to keep the listener satisfied. Maybe it can be compared to the wonderful Hidria Spacefolk from Finland.

I don't know much of their other albums, so I can't score this album 5* yet, but a 4* score is definately deserved. I love that there are still bands trying to be more adventurous and rhythmic.
