Hvis Lyset Tar Oss seems to me to be far more directed, far more specialised, than the earlier releases, and that is its downfall, for, while the elucidation it delivers is noteworthy, it doesn't cover nearly as great a scope as the previous two albums. It is a narrow road through a dense forest, which leads to an ultimate destination - who's to say that you ever intended to start down that road in the first place? Perhaps you're entirely uninterested in the destination to which that road leads. Det Som Engang Var, though, is like falling into an endless cavern, which deepens, widens, and expands as you traverse its deeps. The debut is a vast swampland, with no discernible objective.
