Review
New album from Norwegian progband Arabs In Aspic..this time in their native language !

As always the music are very intriguing and has a certain vibe of 70´about it !! These four musicians knows their stuff, both in instrument but also very much in their inspiration sources. Which to these trained ears could be all from Uriah Heep over Genesis to early King Crimson !! I loved the 2 former albums and I love this one! The only thing that could go against it..is it is sung in Norwegian (the aforementioned 2 was sung in English)...dont misunderstand me, I like it !! Then again I am Scandinavian, I am a Dane and we Scandinavians (Sweden; Norway, Denmark) understand each other..well most of the time.

But hey, I am rambling here..either way the music herein is brilliant as always and it is certainly a must for any AIA fan and all of you with a certain heart for brilliant prog that has its feet firmly grounded in the 70´ will wanna hear this superb album!! By the way, the album tittle translates to something like: The magic of sin.

Highly recommended to any old school proghead and all of you whom like brilliant progmusic delivered with excellence and hints to aforementioned bands and time!

What are you waiting for ?!

P.s. All of their albums have some surrealistic cover-art, which I quite like, this one has a more sinister, one could say ..horror film like cover!! Not specially to my liking !!
