Wild and free, full of joy and play, and in a beautiful middle ground between fun, dare I say, catchy tunes, and free jazz chaos. It's seriously adventurous and boundary-pushing music done in a totally non-pretentious and very listenable way. Love it!
Favorite track: tjuv.
This record is so good! Like many of the best records it reminds you of a lot of things but that all falls away when you are engulfed by the music. Elin Forkelid's solo on Dansa Margit literally left me slack-jawed. Great stuff!
Total mastery of patience, time, and drama create a constantly engaging journey that never gets tiresome or same-y: in fact the harder you listen the better it gets! Somehow Sorey et al. find a way to combine the deep listening and spontaneous interaction of the best jazz with the sense of every tone and sound being worth a universe of listening, which could be equally from Cage and Feldman or the accompaniment to an ancient ritual.
The recording/engineering is absolutely perfect as well. Giles
