  • Summary: This is the third album of psychedelic-rock tunes from Swedish multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Gustav Ejstes.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 20 out of 21
  2. Negative: 0 out of 21
  1. An exceedingly triumphant psych-pop oddity.... I doubt 2004 will birth a more blissful sonic encounter than Ta Det Lugnt.
  2. He has captured a sound that few current artists challenge, and none have mastered to such a degree. Quite simply, Ta det Lugnt is one of the best releases of this year.
  3. With the sonic reach of Pink Floyd and convincing, explosive pop in the vein of Rogue Wave and the Apples in Stereo, "Ta Det Lugnt" is thick with variety.
  4. Year-end best-of lists, you've been warned. [#10, p.106]
  5. You'll swear it's a lost tape from a sweet Hendrix-Iron Butterfly-Cream jam session. [19 Aug 2005, p.145]
  6. 80
    Absolutely endearing. [Jul/Aug 2005, p.101]
  7. 60
    The songs themselves don't amount to much... but they're basically an excuse for Ejstes's gloriously lysergic arrangements anyway. [Sep 2005, p.133]
