The previous album, leucocyte, took the band in a new, mininal direction with sparse melodies and repetition. The initial couple of tracks are similar, with a gentle piano track giving way into a soundscape of thumping bass, electronic sounds, and mysterious piano chords. The fantastic backing provides intense tension as Svensson's melodies build up and break through.

This new album has more of the trademark E.S.T melodies than the previous album and some absolutely outstanding moments of ensemble playing, especially on Three Falling Free Part II, which builds up to a percussive climax. This is a superbly exciting track. The final track, is a slow ballad led alternately by Berglund's bass playing and Svensson's piano, with a touching melody running through it. It's similar, in style, to believe, bereft, below.

I just received this last night and find myself playing it for the third time (notice another reviewer had a similar experience!) and can only add to the enthusiasm already expressed. On one hand hard to listen to and deal with the ongoing sense of lose I feel at Esbjorn's death, but happy to have been able to see them once and more happy still to be able to listen to such a wonderful posthumous offering. Amazing - and I have to agree that "... Three Falling Free Part II, which builds up to a percussive climax..." is an awesome track. Buy it!

I only reeceived this about six or seven hours ago,and this is the fifth time i have listenend to it in its entirety,if you want dull predictable and boring,then this is definately not your thing.
The album starts with the solo pino tune "Behind the stars"a reflective piece that seques into the magnificent"Inner city city lights"a long brooding malevalant track,this ios then followed by another 12 minute track"The left lane" that features great playing by Esbjorn,very fluid in tempo until about half way through,when the tempo slows right down with some fine Bass solo work by Dan Berglund.the drummerMagnus Ollstrum is no slouch either.
"Houston the fifth"a short electronic sound scape follows,withits out of this world ambience,which then melds into the plaintive"Tree falling free part one" which has some wonderful playing on it by Esbjorn,this is followed by "Tree falling free part two" which at over 14 minutes is the longest track on the album,which is good because it gives the trio time to express themselves and extend thier creativity,which within this trio was immence,the whole thing builds to a stunning cresendo of sound.
The whole album is bought to an end,by the stunning 8 minute track"The childhood dream",a slower paced tune that stand up well.
I own all 13 EST albums,as well as the solo releasesand i feel that Esbjorn would have rated this amongst the best had he still been alive today,i miss him not only as a master musician,but a human being.

ESBJORN SVENSSON......GRAND PIANO,ELECTRONICS,TRANSISTOR RADIO
DAN BERGLUNDDig It To The End - Tonbruket.....DOUBLE BASS,ELECTRONICS.

its hard at first to listen because it feels like a new cd. I can't believe they had so much music to offer.
i am so used to listen to my heroes, so many passed on. est were probably the most exciting jazz trio ever.

This is one of e.s.t.'s greatest albums, and even arguably their ultimate work, in every sense of the word.
It represents a colossal achievement, as they take their final bow. The 2007 material might be extremely varied in tone and approach, partly out of necessity, doubtless governed by the available recordings, but this circumstance works to the album's advantage. It's a summation of where the trio had been, and also of where these perpetually evolving players were heading next.

Highly recommended. E.S.T. doing their thing at the top of their game. The 'Childhood Dream' is a peach. What a tragedy to lose such a great musician.

It was a huge loss when Esbjörn checked out from planet earth, especially afer listening to Leucocyte and the musical direction that EST where going towards,I was looking forward to many more years of fantastic music from EST. I was so exceited, when I listend to 301, which is a great statement to leave behind. 301 is a MUST buy for all fans of great piano trio music,even for all human beings with intrest in exploring great music with no boundaries.
