Since prog is still a four-letter word for many, Dungen mastermind Gustav Ejstes could be taking a risk by steering away from mind-melting guitar freak-outs and into ponderous piano-led progressive territory. Even with Dungen's typically amped-up assault turned way down, the jazzy 4 album makes for an engaging listen even if there's only one shred-fest, the blazing Samtidigt 1, which seems to have been added as an afterthought to placate fans of ye olde crankin' Dungen.
Other than that lone detour, it's a totally mellow set where flute often takes precedence over guitar. Thankfully, Ejstes's tight arrangements leave little room for wankery, and none of the songs deal with flying dragons. Of course, even if they did, you wouldn't know it unless you understood Swedish, since Ejstes has no interest in singing in English.
