I heard this from a friend and had to visit discogs to work out where in heck it came from. Given the overwhelming popularity of Takk, I am amazed I haven't heard it before now. Worth it alone for track five which is absolutely stunning. I would have liked to have heard them do some more stuff with Steindor Anderson - I love his voice. Kind of Ingmar Bergman imagery it creates. 4/5 but track five is 5/5 - wonderful.
