Released in late 1992, it would become one of the most influential albums of the new wave of progressive rock in the '90s. It begins with "Jordrök" (which means earth-smoke), the only fully instrumental piece on the album.
The music is quite similar to 1970s progressive rock groups such as Yes, Cathedral and King Crimson, but Änglagård has also succeeded in creating their own style, much thanks to Holmgren's folklore-sounding flute playing and Olsson's highly distinctive drumming (he was only 17 in 1992). There are also obvious similarities to the obscure 1970s band Cathedral's one-shot album Stained Glass Stories.
On the remastered CD-version of the album, there is a bonus track called "Gånglåt från Knapptibble" which seems to be a demo of the song "Skogsranden" from their second album, Epilog.
