Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-02-20 
A fantastic mix of “now-prog” & krautrock from these locals. This time they’ve added members of The Fucking Champs, Citay and The Mass. These additions bring forth a bigger, full sound often making the band sound heavier.

((((1)))) Synths galore, then a pretty heavy early 70’s guitar wail (Think early Pink Floyd, Guru Guru)
((((((2))))) Bombastic heavy prog with some fine piano/guitar interplay.
(((3))) Angular and kinda silly “videogame”-ish like their pals in the Advantage.
(((((4))))) Cinematic with an early 80’s synth vibe and a lot of playfulness among the band.
((((((5))))) Short, trippy, spacey, “Exploratorium exhibit soundtrack”.
((((6)))) Typical but excellent mix of 70’s symphonic prog into 80’s synths jams.
(((((7))))) Great drumming, odd synths that sound like they belong in a cheesy 80’s action movie but fun all the way.
(((((8))))) Awesome synth/guitar driven jam with lots of nice riffs and chords.
((((((9)))))) Loose, sorta poppy feeling like if these guys were around in ’74 this would’ve been their ‘hit’ among the older brothers of the world.
