Jordsjø have crafted an enchanting album here, a real gem of a keeper. I place them in the same elite camp as Änglagård and Camel. I quickly fell under the spell of the magical, folksy flute during the intro; a spell which was soon embellished by further flourishes of the band’s other considerable talents. When Ulvenatt ended—-a song I found quite reminiscent of Opeth’s Ending Credits, in flow and feel—-I was a converted fan.
Anyone with an aversion to "contemporary prog" should listen to Wobbler and they'd realize that prog classics are not just confined to the 1970s. This album is just so tight on every level that if you'd have told me this was recorded in 1974, I'd have no basis for questioning it other than the lack of more prominent tape hiss. Great from start to finish! babayetu
This Canterbury-infused record has a lot of the qualities that I love in prog rock: structured yet unpredictable songwriting; production that, unlike much new prog, does not sound like something recorded in an aseptic vacuum chamber; many different instruments that work together favouring empathic synergy over aimless technical noodling; different layers and moods seamlessly woven together; the rare capacity of not taking itself too seriously; and much more. A bold and inventive masterwork. muschiosauro
