REVIEW: Sweden’s longest running space rock band is back with their new release and I have to say, I was surprised with how much their last album grew on me over time. This new one takes the songwriting skills that the band developed that album ("We Came Too Late") and they move it up to an entirely new level. The lyrics are really excellent on this album, with a theme about nature and state of the planet - in addition, the band has mixed in many more space sounds. Just a fantastic album.  

    It starts off with the amazing title track, which is quite short only 3½ mins with acoustic guitar, but a really nice spacey vibe and excellent lyrics and vocals. Then "In Green Heat" features Søren on vocals again and flows seamlessly after the opening track and features some really high quality spacey synth, slide guitar, organ, with the violin playing more of a role in this track especially with the last minute slowing down and spacing out.

   "Mörkret 2" is a 2min experimental space out that is quite psychedelic which then leads into my favourite track on the record, "Tired Nature". This is a more uptempo space rock track and reminds me of their "Daybreak" album material. There's a great jam like section as well!

   "Some Things" is a nice floating take-down after the intensity of "Tired Nature", with a slow pace, spacey synths, nice violin countering the melodic guitar. Beautiful stuff.

   "In a Time" features Marcus on vocals, with awesome special effects and great bass lines on this 6 minute super-melodic track.

   Then another killer, in "Moving Along" which has a familiar guitar line and is more uptempo with a bit harder edge but also very melodic with a good mix of all the elements that make this band great - it's another one of my favourites and you'll love the tough guitar.

   The album ends with the 11 minute epic "Fista på gräsmatten". It starts with some piano, and gets more and more trippy as it slowly intensifies and turns into a truly massive track, which builds and builds with lots of spacey synths, violin, piano, guitar, a heavy bass line, etc.. and so this incredible album ends on a huge high.

   Hard to get across just what an amazing album this is!...(but I tried!).
