Aug 31, 2011The title track of this album finds Graveyard at their most rip-roaring, offering a thunderous riff and some stinging guitar soloing. Other tracks throw little stylistic tweaks (background vocals on "Buying Truth [Tack & Förlåt]") into the mix, but the basic formula stays the same.
Kerrang!Aug 31, 2011The classy atmosphere of Hisingen Blues makes Graveyard sound timeless rather than retrogressive, and wholly relevant in 2011. [14 May 2011, p.51]
Aug 31, 2011There's not too much to Hisingen Blues when all is said and done, but more than ever, it feels like Graveyard has its own identity, delivering a version of heavy blues rock with so much attention to detail that it stands out far apart from the band's more modern-sounding peers.

Hisingen Blues was one of them. "It sounds like a Blue Cheer album" the guy in the record shop says, so I decided to buy it; it's cheap, supposedly good so, why not?
Thursday, September 8th, 2011, around 4:00 PM: I decided to play the CD, it started playing. "This sounds like Led Zeppelin, holy **** Unlike The Raconteurs who also sound like Zep, This album is full of energy, loud guitars and gives you that wonderful groovy shivers, it's everything I ever asked for. By track 5 I realized that this has some of coolest guitar riffs ever. And then Longing came, which fits perfectly as the soundtrack for some medieval-based movie. Ungrateful Are the Dead came next. "Those riffs again!" I thought, not that it's a bad thing, though. And then, at some moment of this song comes an awesome guitar solo just to make this song laterally awesome. *3 minutes of jamming to RSS*
The Siren started as a really meh-ish song but as the chorus started it was becoming slowly a song I would hear from Led Zeppelin (again) and I like that.

I played the album again and I appreciated that Uncomfortably Numb's last minute's sheer beauty. Also.. I could actually focus on the guitars in RSS, pretty cool, I have to say.
