really nice, thanks.
kind of tuxedomoon-y.
good songwriting: "Pictures & Paintings" really shines.

This was probably one of the most popular artists in 80's Norway.
Today he's most known for his humor program on radio doing renowned political satire and his frequent television appearances.
Dra til Hælvete (go to hell) was banned from radio and tv in it's time.
A genuinely funny guy and he is also a big fan of prog.

Fascinating stuff, just the kind of thing we have to expect and admire from Mutant Sounds. The vocals are distinctly in the Winston Tong (Tuxedomoon) vein, but the combination of synth and psychedelic guitar reminds a little of Chrome, and that's a very good thing.

Downloaded this a while ago and am listening now for the second time. At first I liked it. But now I am in awe. This is just brilliant in every way! Uncomparable but still breathing the early 80s' air. Love it, thank you for introducing me to this!
