The North is hot

whatever how the style is called in other reviews Dungen is one of THE bands on earth - for me! Their sound is certainly influenced by psychedelic/acid rock (and some drugs too) but is innovative in some way. For example Panda is an exciting opener for an album, lots of their songs end with a great step to a higher level - like a melodic, melancholic fade out - great tunes

1971?1969?

Those who previously reviewed this must not have been around in 1969-71 because it sounds like nothing from that era. And psychedelic? Whoa! This is nothing more that some Swedish band ripping off some other retro wannabes! Try Silver Apples etc.

excellent 1969 style psych into 1970 style prog

like a more progressive Bulldog Breed or less whimsical Caravan.Exellent musicianship with songs that keep things interesting; however, it is much more progressive than psychedelic. The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is the vocals reminds me of the lead singer for Duran Duran

Just right.

Stylistically, this album is somewhere between the meandering, long-form works from their self titled debut, and their shorter, more traditionally structured songs from their most recent release ("4"). For me, its the perfect mix.

NICE!

This is one of my all-time favorite albums -- it's really great to see it here on eMusic! Now if they get Stadsvandringar, we'll have the whole, beautiful catalog.

They Say All Music Guide

Psychedelic rock has seen a number of revivals since its heyday in the late ’60s. Often times, these bands sound like they’re simply aping the influences they wear so prominently on their sleeves. Dungen, on the other hand, sound like they’ve somehow been directly transported from 1968 to the present. Maybe it’s their vintage equipment, or maybe it’s the fact that most listeners probably haven’t heard much Swedish-language psychedelia for comparison, but this doesn’t have the second- or third-generation rehashed flavor that so many modern psychsters can’t avoid. There’s a pungent aroma of, um, authenticity here that other bands haven’t been able to match, from the wicked fuzz guitar to the organ and flute workouts. There are some great psych-pop moments throughout, and these melodies are likely to stick in your head even if Swedish isn’t your language, but there are also detours into some pretty serious hard-psych territory as well as flute-led hippie free jazz and even some Swedish folk flavors (like the intro to “Du E För Fin För Mig”). There is little studio trickery beyond some simple tape echo, but the acid-colored vibes come through loud and clear. Gustav Ejstes (the one-man band behind Dungen) has an incredible knack for a great tune, an ear for production, and then the ability to perform all the parts and still sound like a band. Guitar ringer Reine Fiske has one of the gnarliest fuzz tones ever heard and contributes excellent raw lead guitar all over, particularly on the title cut and “Gjort Bort Sig” or when the acoustic guitar, fiddle, and Mellotron of “Du E För Fin För Mig” suddenly switch to a blistering electric coda. Ta Det Lugnt clearly evokes another time and headspace, but there’s an underlying passion that keeps it sounding fresh (much like when the Bevis Frond appeared in the late ’80s). Put on your ear-goggles and head back to the late ’60s. – Sean Westergaard
