Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-08-05
Nice instrumental prog (or “math rock” if you prefer) trio from Oakland. Sometimes loud & bombastic like King Crimson othertimes jazzy, fusion/rock kinda stuff going on.

(((((1))))) Awesome, fuzzy guitar-laden early Crimson-worship. Like something from the “Red” LP outtakes or sumethin’
((((2)))) Off-kilter jazz-rock. Some nice stop/starts.
((((3)))) Snaky, sneaky & cyclical.
(((((4)))) Playful to the point of silliness but really a lot of fun mixing prog & jazz fusion.
(((((5)))) Excellent minimal strummy sounds. Listen close and it sounds like someone’s talking.
(((6))) Twangy, sort of Fred Frith-like, repetitive but then guitar gets a little heavy on the wailing.
(((((7)))) Great guitar harmonics with some oddball jazz moments. Lots of stops/starts + bass thuds. A few nods to Sabbath & Rush, too.
((((8)))) Watery then videogame like with theremin effects. Sorta funky, too.
((((9)))) Lots of nicely flowing bass, a mix of scales and solid mix of simple chords & notes.
