3 stars By the 1980 Kaipa was no more in that excellent form that were in 1978, this album named Hander or Hands in english caught Kaipa in a more pop zone but with some good moments here and there. The brain of the band Stolt now is gone living a hole in the entire mechanism. Not very much to add, just a good album to my ears, ok sometime mediocre, some tracks sounds like a more dark version of ABBA pop songs, Krieg for ex. Now, here is a piece that is absolutly brilliant, dark, moody, slow but with some very fine arrangeents, is the instrumental one named Regn or Rain in english. I love this piece a lot, the best from here for sure, another fine moments are on Elgrandi , another instrumental one. The rest of the album is from pop zone with some good keybords and guitars here and there, the symphonic prog is no more present, but in the end an ok album, not something special for sure and kinda miles away from Solo, previous album but pleasent. 2.5 rounded to 3 only for Regn and Elgrandi.
