Some early Swedish psych prog is always interesting to discover and listen, and this record did not cause any disappoitments. In fact, it totally blow my mind and exceeded all of my expectations!
The band has a very strong trio playing style similar to the acid rock legends The Jimi Hendrix Experience and live sound of Cream, leaving the hit song try-outs behind and focusing to long, loose and trippy archaic improvisations. All players are very convincing, bringing much content to the sound, and the raw crush and tender melancholy of the group sucks the willing listener to a voyage to surreal world of impulsive sounds. Except for few wailings in the first track, the music is totally instrumental. –keep reading in progarchives.
