Sweden, 1974, rock in opposition / avant-prog

Samla Mammas MannaKlossa knapitatet: Måltid being one of my favorite albums, I wasn’t expecting this as the follow up. This is hardly RIO, in my opinion, because, frankly, it’s too playful, too carnivalesque. This isn’t a criticism of the album–I like it!–but it’s more humorous in the Canterbury Scene vein than anything else, especially moments like the yodeling on the fourth track or the clown bicycle horn on the fifth track. The turn towards jazz fusion the band takes here connects this album to a lot of similar-sounding music in my collection.
