Album Review
Reviewed 2007-02-10
Live 2-CD recording from the Swedish folk/rock quintet. Combine folk fiddle and electric guitar, sax, drums, add lots of energy, a quirky sense of humor and great musicianship and you’ll get this. It’s rockin, cocky, crazy good. Watch for applause & crowd noise. Also note that because of their accents, every time they say “folk” it sounds like “fuck”. It never is – all FCC friendly. All instrumentals. Many tracks end early so watch out. Folk off!

CD 1:
*1. Upbeat, driving with some wicked-good playing. Esp sax.
*2. Crazy-fast toe-tapping rock/folk.
3. Fluid & jazzy mid/uptempo folk piece.
4. Staggering rock polska. Driving, midtempo, big.
*5. Upbeat, fun almost Nordic-ska hurdy-gurdy rock track.
6. Cool mid/upbeat polska w/solid guitar solo.
*7. Fast, fast. Slows down, gets going again & becomes a frenzy.
8. Slow & stately at first. Then a warm, relaxed folk/rock sway.
9. Midtempo head-nodder with a sophisticated folk/rock sound.
*10. Drivin w/lots of clapping & crowd noise. Upbeat, way cool.

CD 2:
1. Sweet, lyrical folk polska. With a hint of sadness & jazz. Pretty.
*2. Starts mid, picks up, false stop at 2:15 then a sing along. Fun!
*3. A driving folk dance. Starts mid, picks up. Gets rockin. Yow!
4. Fast toe-tapper that turns into a rock anthem. Band gets introduced, then things calm down & pick up again. 1 min of applause at end.
5. Mid/upbeat w/screaming guitar.
*6. Bright, toe-tapping & folksy. With cool sax bits adding brass.
7. Tripping melody, midtempo w/a cool energy. Great sax.
8. Sweet, old-fashioned folk sound at first, sax makes it cool.
