  1. It isn’t the sort of artistic statement that promises to change anyone’s life, but it’s no less a great work of escapist art, the sort of essential record I’d pick for any hypothetical list of desert island necessities.

    In comparison to... Ta Det Lungt, Tio Bitar trades much of the immediacy for multi-dimensional empiricism and fringe atmosphere. [#25, p.98]
  3. Once again, English speakers need not understand a lick of Swedish to enjoy the music's universally mind-expanding effects.
  4. Tio Bitar finds Dungen streamlining its expansive pop-psych attack with a set of jams that hit with more clarity and intensity than ever.

    Solid from start to finish. Nearly on par with Ta Det Lungt.

    This album may have been a similar feel to their previous album, but it is definitely worth checking out. There's nothing ruined here, it's fairly solid and maybe they risk flopping by reinventing themselves after they show they can put out multiple albums that are enjoyable listens from front to back.
