The Swedes are strong in spicing up typical fairy folk with intoxicating psychedelic ingredients. The debut of the Swedish singer Anna Myrsten alias AnnaMy also follows this tradition. If she were to make music alone, armed only with her guitar, she might come close to the ethereal folk of a Sandy Denny with an airy folk song like "Snowflakes". Members of Psychedelic-Folker Dungen and The Amazing support her, so that "Care", equipped with a booming Hammond organ, becomes more of a folky Doors song. The song "Stegen", typical for the seventies, could also be sung by Judy Collins. Only the overblown flute is reminiscent of a certain dervish from the English prog fleet. The title track first makes noises and ornaments as if from a haunted cave, before the elven song lust takes over the scepter again. "Dig My Grave" clearly pays homage to the early Joni Mitchell. Towards the end of the last track you float gently on slide guitars and of course angel voices again. For Folkies a pretty, entertaining album.
