5 stars With the second self-titled KEBNEKAJSE album (also known under the title "II") the band made a slight change in the line up. The members of the group Homo Sapiens (Pelle Lindström, Thomas Netzler, Mats Glenngård and Gunnar Andersson) who singed choir on the first album became permanentmembers of the band, and the music changed from loud guitar based hard rockto Swedish folk rock with fiddle and electric guitar in the forefront. The music was actually called "fiddlers rock" in a press release from Silence Records. If it wasn't for Kenny Håkansson's characteristic guitar playing you could almost believe that it was a whole new band.

This album contains highlights such as "Rättvikarnas gånglåt" where Turid Lundqvist beautiful voice can be heard, "Horgalåten", "Skänklåt från Rättvik" and "Barkbrödlåten". Silence has also added a bonus tracks called "Horgalåten" which was recorded live by a fan, Timo Toiviainen, at a concert in Mikkälä, Finland.

This is without doubt one of the better folk rock albums ever from Sweden.
