5 stars In the early Nineties many Skandinavian progrock bands flooded the scene, Anekdoten was one of the first. I got their debut-CD as a promo when I had just joined the Dutch progrock paper SI Magazine. The music blew me away, what a compelling and captivating compositions en what a mindblowing Mellotron sound! The first track "Karellia" starts with one of the most beautiful Mellotron-drenched intro's, goose bumps!! The strong point in the music from Anekdoten is the hugh tension between the mellow, often melancholical climates and the dynamic parts delivering Fripp-inspired howing electric guitar, an agressive bass and splendid drumwork, this man is the driving force behind Anekdoten. Last year I witnessed them near my hometown The Hague and bought the re-issue that contains the extra track "Sad Rain", it sound in the vein of the early King Crimson featuring wonderful Mellotron. A CLASSIC ALBUM!!!!
