Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-08-05 
Dark ambient from 1995-96. Mostly very good use of synth patterns & other tones that evoke images of medeiveal war, castles, endless forests or Norwegian guys with really fucking silly costumes.

(((1))) Sweeping, medeval/classical on cheap Casios? Hey, it kinda works.
((((2)))) Epic, repetitive, occasionally metallic percussion.
(((3))) Percussive, repetitive, dark promenade with sleigh bells?
(4) Noisy to new-agey but mostly new agey. Icky.
((5)) Occasional blurping rumbles, a slight flute-like sound but too silly to make anything of it.
((6)) Medieval ambient drone but frustrating as you can hear him practically stop and think of what tone or pattern he’s gonna play next.
(((7))) Decent use of synths, some random clunky percussion
((8)) Bad harpsichord sounds set to quasi-dark ambient
((((9))))) Middle ages troll dance? Video game-ish and unintentional silliness abound.
((((10))) Cartoonish oddness. Something like a elfin version of Wendy Carlos. Also a lot of fun! ---
