Ritual - Think Like a Mountain (2003)

The third album from this Swedish band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, harp, bass, guitars, bouzouki, dulcimer, mellotron, organ, piano, synth, whistles, recorders and vocals.

Two guest musicians added cello, viola, violin and electric violin.

The band returned again with their third album after a rather indifferent second album.

The band returned to the rather Greek and Middle-East influences. 

The band still does a mix of Scandinavian neo-prog and symphonic prog. But with some folk rock influences from Greece and the Middle-East. There are also some Swedish folk rock influences in their music.

The result is one hour of some melodic but still eclectic songs. 

The vocals is very good and so is the music here. Music which is half-acoustic throughout. It is also soulful. 

The result is a very good album and one to check out. 

3.5 points
