Måns Mossa - Måns Mossa (1979)
The one and only album from this Swedish band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, synths, piano and Swedish vocals.
This is a very obscure Swedish band which not even I had heard about before this album showed up in my inbox. I thought it was a brand new band. It is not.
The sound and music is very much 1979. The sound is actually very good and crisp.
The music is a bit all over the place. Take hard rock, add a lot of Swedish pop-rock and some funk. At the end, we even get some fusion and reggae.
This is indeed an album with everything.
The guitars are very good. The vocals good and the lyrics is best forgotten.
The end result is a forty-five minutes long album which is not too bad. It is decent enough. It is a time capsule and a throwback to the 1970s Sweden. That is what this is.
