Review by apps79
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Little-known Progressive/Art-Rock act from Stockholm performing during late-70's.Horizont became mostly known for including famous Swedish dinger Tommy Nillson and later Roxette guitarist Jonas Isacsson in the line-up.Rest of the crew were keyboardist Christian Rosenberg, bassist Tommy Gällhagen and drummer Thomas Lögren.Their debut of the same name was released in 1977 on CBS Records.

Excellent mix of classic Swedish Symphonic Rock and light Fusion with some pop sensibilities thrown in is the style met in Horizont's debut, a work full of growing emotions and ethereal but edgy musicianship.There is a strong amount of KAIPA influence throughout the album, especially in the instrumental parts: Magnificent melodic guitar work, smooth use of keyboards with moog synth, piano and organ and fine Swedish vocal lines.But there is also some typical late-70's Fusion met in the compositions, as some of the solos are strongly based on Rosenberg's synths and clavinet along with the funky bass lines of Gallhagen.Few of the tracks have also some more straightforward vocal-parts with good energy.The combination is fascinating and the band knew definitely how to produce first-class compositions with strongly- linked different themes.

To my ears Horizont played back in 1977 what SPOCK'S BEARD or even more THE FLOWER KINGS would present some 20 years later.A unique and totally progressive combination of unsimilar soundscapes with influences from all the prog spectrum.And they played it really good.Highly recommended.
