Album Reviews:

Jazziz (10/95, p.44) - "...a hard-edged blast of buzzing and sawing with loud percussion beats. The vocals perch on top of all that noise....Not recommended for the musically timid..."

Trä (Swedish for "wood") found Hedningarna updating their production and sensibility to reflect more contemporary tastes, featuring some edgier, more rock-influenced sounds. The album became their most successful yet, but a slight slickness to the production renders the folk material a shade less immediate than its predecessor, Kaksi!. Still, the more aggressive cuts pack a punch. ~ Steve Huey
