r2r I can't pick a favorite track, try as I might. I remember the heady days of the 1990's and when Northside Records here in the States was licensing and distributing this wild Folk-rock; names like Hoven Droven, Hedningarna, Den Fule, Triakel, Wimme, etc. had us shaking our heads at the energy, drive, musicianship, and crazy meters. There was stark beauty in the ancient melodies and lovely singing. Well, SVER is all those things. This is powerful music, beautifully executed and recorded. Wow!
