Review
So a new album from this fine Swedish quartet, the third since their debut in 2012. Their special sound and keyboard drenched often melancholic soundscapes still intact, but this time with the addition of guitars, songwriter, keyboard wiz: Hannes Ljunghall´s original choice of instrument! Let me tell you right now, not only is Hannes brilliant on keys, he is also quite excellent on that six stringed, which is quite evident here and there on this fine outing. Not forgetting the three other musicians whom delivers great performances throughout the album. As indicated their special sound and melancholy is still here and I really love that, the moods, the sequences, the variations of the themes, sudden breaks and some dark and sinister snippets woven into the whole picture of sound. Singer Bruno Edling really captures those moods to perfection. This album has been sitting in my cd-player for quite some time by now and it grows at every spin! This album has the spirit of one of those great albums/bands you have heard back in the day, when originality and music with true feeling ruled! Great stuff for this old - school prog head and I highly recommend this band and album to any real prog collector with a heart for old school also.

Now GO !!

P.s. Great cover art on the gatefold cardboard cover ( incl. lyric sheet).
