4 stars Bo Hansson recorded this album on a 4-tracks tape on a little island in the Baltic Sea. I suppose it was winter. The nordic athmosphere is present in all the tracks and it's its strength. There are rumors about an uncredited presence of Jimi Hendrix (it's written in a comment on the back of the vinyl cover) and it could be true. Of course, it's not the best album I ever listened to, but it's quite good. The only problem is that it's "contaminated" by many influences from the 60s, like the excessive use of percussions and the psychedelic sound of guitar and keyboards. Anyway, if you like the northern mysts, this is not to be missed. It's 20 years before the Anglagard and it should have its place in every prog collection.

4 stars
