Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2008-07-01
Awesome instrumental prog/jazz fusion jams with a bit of funk. More odd/interestingly enough it’s from Norway. Features members of Jaga Jazzist, Supersilent and Shining (the Norwegian one, not the Swedish Metal band). In all some great stuff in the traditional late 60’s-early 70’s style. It’s even recorded in analogue. Not far from Miles-“electric” period, Weather Report, Soft Machine & E.L.P.’s best jams. The last 2 tracks are Joe Zawinul compositions.

((((((1)))))) Excellent prog-fusion (“prusion?”) with some really loose bass and often wild drumming & keyboards.
((((2)))) Downtempo but then up again with proper proggy keyboards/moog sound and very jazzy drumming. Like a good & sober version of Wakeman sitting in with Miles Electric band?
((((((3)))))))) Totally amazing 70’s prog-fusion worship. Complicated tempos and tons of keyboard/drum interplay and excellent bass sound.
((((4)))) Slow, mellow, “floaty” organ-led intro with some nice minimal guitar parts.
(((((((5))))))) Super funky prog/fusion ‘ala 70’s era Miles & Weather Report. Killer!
(((((6))))) High pitched intro, lots of soft cymbals, mellow yet slow & eventually louder & funky. Really pays off.
((((7)))) Strange and improv-y, spacey in places othertimes chaotic but generally captivating.
