Dungen's fourth studio album extends the acclaimed Swedish outfit's sound past psychedelia into something far more rare. Moving beyond mere stylistic concerns, 4 finds Gustav Ejstes' focus on the extremes of Dungen's sound separating into two entities. Blazing, raw guitar workouts have their own time and place, but now, so do stirringly orchestrated, jazz-cooled compositions ... Read more in Amazon's Dungen Store

Format: Audio CD
Dungen's third album "Ta Det Lungt" is not the sort of music that will get a lot of radioplay. Thank God. Instead, it's the sort of music that will deservingly acquire a cult following -- a sparkling, mad, wild musical psychedelic pop trip. This is probably the best Swedish import since Ingrid Bergman.
And there isn't any better way to open than with "Panda," a sparkling rock song that is both infectiously catchy and wonderfully rockin'. That fuzzy, cycling guitar works very well with the colorful Hammond melodies; it takes that great rock vibe and makes it fun as well.
Unless you are (or speak) Swedish, you probably won't understand a word Gustav Estjes sings. But somehow that's okay. He and his band forge through more wild tunes, like the echoing "Gjort bort sig," some mellow folk-rock, sprawling experimental songs (which brought a morning meadow to mind), and the sizzling riffs of the title track.
Not that everything is straightforward rock'n'roll; at the halfway point, things get a bit weird. "Det du tänker idag är du i morgon" is a smooth, shimmering little pop song full of flute, drums and Hammond, and is probably one of the prettiest songs released in the past year. It's followed by a few ominous experimental songs and an epic folk ballad, before finally finishing with a blast of pure, wild psychrock.
Dungen was one of the unexpected underground hits of the year -- before "Ta Det Lungt," they weren't really known outside of Sweden. Thankfully, that has changed, because their third album puts them up in the ranking of appealing, enchanting music that happens to be fun from start to finish.

Where to even start with this album, sung entirely in Swedish, and melding The Who, The Beatles, The Mars Volta, Pink Floyd, and maybe, just maybe a bit of Deep Purple too? With trowelled-on synth organ, screaming guitars, and a host of melodies that would make The Byrds happy, you won't care in the slightest that you don't know what on earth they're singing about. This album argues for classification as prog rock, or as psych-pop, or some other made-up term, but just when you think you've got it pinned down, the album twists away like a slippery fish - herring perhaps? Instead, it is a journey full of adrenaline rush and endorphin joy, like a Fruit and Nut bar consumed on an Alton Towers ride. The tunes are fantastic, the adventure immense. Don't let the non-English singing put you off - this album speaks a much more fundamental language.

Spiky, weird, psyche-pop. Ta Det Lungt twists and turns like some sinuous vine. Be careful it comes with added thorns, too.

On first listen things seem harsh and chill, the orchestration is dense and multi-faceted; not quite the 'everything but the kitchen sink' variety, but not far short. However, it's never at the expense of a good tune and even though all vocals are in Swedish things still scan perfectly well. I have no grasp of Swedish at all but find myself singing along.

Genre wise, Dungen are un-categorisable. At a push, file under Indie Jazz; but now all you Jazz fans are thinking, Indie? And all the Indie fans are doubtless getting their proverbial bargepoles ready to avoid it like the plague. And it's not Jazz anyway, more 70's rock with a contemporary sheen, or Prog without the unnecessary `thoughtful' bits... or think Pink Floyd by the Mars Volta or a Faith No More weaned on Miles Davis rather than Black Sabbath.

Or just think: Wondrous!

Swedish psych-rockers show the world how it should be done! Dungen seem to have an energy which appears to have gone missing in music in recent years. The aural quality of this record takes me right back to the sounds of the 'Floyd in the late 60's but with a heavier spin, and musically it bears greater resemblence to prog of the 70's - but with better tunes! I cannot recommend this album enough.

awesome swedish psych rock (and more) 23 Nov 2004
By somethingexcellent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Unless you are from Sweden, you will not understand a word of "Ta Det Lugnt." Unless you are adverse to stunning psych rock, your ass will be rocked sideways by Dungen. Hell, I'm not even a huge fan of the stuff myself, but Dungen has pulled something together with this 13 track release that has really grabbed my ears and knocked me back to about the date of my birth (almost 30 years ago now, yikes).

I think that had I heard a release like this when I was still in high school and searching for something, anything different, I would have run the other way. Now that electronic music has been glitched to high-heaven and taken in 100s of directions and rock music has been distilled and re-distilled again, it's nice to hear something that sorta takes it back to the rocking basics and does so in a very, very good way. The opening track of "Panda" very well be an ode to the bear of the same name, but after opening with some rumbling drums and absolutely scorching riffs, I think that most people would throw their rock hands in the air and not even care. Overdriven guitars alternately squeal and space out and the drumming is spot on.

"Festival" opens with strummed acoustic guitars but soon launches into a heavy wall of layered guitars and another punishing rhythm section while "Du E För Fin För Mig" starts out with an aching string quartet before building into one of the most epic sing-along tracks I've heard this entire year. At well over 8 minutes, the track stretches out to a perfect length, lolling off into trippy sections while slowly adding layers and eventually turning into a thunderous rock stomper. Imagine Sigur Ros versus Beta Band versus classic psych rock all sung in Swedish and maybe you're getting somewhere close.

Really, Ta Det Lugnt is done so well that it's not just a disc that's going to only appeal to those with a retro achilles heel. The group touches on symphonic (see the aforementioned description), garage, indie, and even stadium rock in their genre-blending release. In just over 50 minutes, there's only a relative few moments that aren't that engaging, and they're offset with some of the more stunning psychedelic rock I've heard in awhile. Unlike some bands doing somewhat similar things, Dungen has also remembered that it's the hooks that really sell the release. With catchy riffs in just about every track, "Ta Det Lugnt" this is a hugely fun release that might make you do a double take on first listen, but will surely suck you in.

Back Through the Multi-Coloured Time Tunnel 6 Aug 2005
By Matthew Comegys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first read about this album several months ago, and was quite unsuccessful in tracking it down. Needless to say, this built up some high expectations that the actual product certainly could not match. Surprisingly, Dungen's "Ta Det Lugnt" manages to not only match, but exceed my already high expectations.

Simply put, this is the best old-school psychedelia to hit the shelves since the heyday of the Olivia Tremor Control. Nothing on this disc betrays that is was recorded after 1968, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The sound of the album is in a cavernous ball of noise comparable to "The Who Sells Out" or Pink Floyd's "Piper At the Gates of Dawn." on top of this is a whole lot of Nuggets like distortion and compression. The lyrics are entirely in Swedish, but with the extreme echo efeects on a lot of songs, I doubt they'd be too intelligible in English. But this isn't an album you'd put on for the lyrics, but for the amazing swirl of sound. Organs, loud guitars, and compressed drums sound like they're beaming in from high atop Swedish mountain peaks, and songs meander in innovative ways, with choruses and verses expertly blending together and codas seemingly coming in from nowhere. This is a dense album with high replay value.

If you're a fan of stuff like Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, Elephant Six, or the Flaming Lips, grabbing a copy of "Ta Det Lugnt" is necessary and most possibly your duty. Besides, the American pressing comes with a 15 minute bonus CD which serves as the fun, experimental EP-like dessert once you're finished digesting the album.

Re-Issue with Bonus Disc! 3 Aug 2005

Check the reviews on the original release if you doubt how brilliantly awesome this album is. Unfortunately missing from this particular item's description: this is a digi-pak re-issue of the 2004 release, now distributed by Hollywood Records with a bonus disc of five previously unreleased songs.

what did he say? 5 Dec 2004
By t-diggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hearing that somethings from Sweden and labeled as psychedelic rock at the same time makes for funny images of a country getting some backlogged images from 1970's American culture. At least thats what I thought. Swedish Psych? They must be ripping off Zeppelin or Floyd. Right? Well, a little, but damn it if wasn't SO good! They may rip off some of the best sounds of the freewheeling seventies. They may not be playing the most original music. But if they were around in those ancient times of sex drugs and rock and roll, we might have a different band that influenced current musical culture. There are a few things that will make this appeal to many people that probably wont hear it. For one, the sounds of the guitars they use range from old school fazed out gutiar fuzz to thick heavy grungy guitar sounds from Soungarden and the like. Even though all the lyrics are in Swedish (yes thats right - no english) the singer has a wonderful voice that sounds liek the best of the beatles the birds and alot of current popular indie rock bands of today. Which brings me to another point. They also use so many of todays indie rock sounds which brings their classical rock sound forward about thirty years. Coupled with their mastery and depth of songwriting (and their penchant for getting trippy) this could be a huge hit amone many different genres of fans. From rock and rollers, to your hippie parents, to those kids that sweat everthing on pitchfork.com (yes I am one of them) Check this album out and spread the word, because its not often we get to hear so much goodness on one record.

Simply Outstanding 8 Feb 2005
By Matthew Wrosch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm literally just floored by the sounds on this album. For a generation of musicians equally influenced by guitars and the sounds of an Atari 2600, it's nice to know that there's someone in this world who's not afraid to revert to a formula that moved an entire generation before them. That's not to say that the music sounds dated, because it doesn't. In fact it's phenomenal, and I don't throw that word around loosely, especially when Pitchfork has already influenced their share of the world on what's good and what's not. I don't know anything about the band other than they don't speak a word of english, but with music this tight the guy's singing is just another instrument adding even greater depth and mystery. If you're a fan of any music that contains a guitar and drums, you'd be hard pressed to find a release more worth your money or time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
