5 stars Make no mistake Attic Thoughts is worthy of a five star rating. It is as essential an ingredient to the 70's progressive movement as it is essential for just the sheer quality of sound it delivers. Here Bo Hansson had the finest quality musicianship backing him up. He had refined any rough edges from his previous 2 albums and the production is first class. The artwork is also stunning and again Hansson has that knack of conveying the title of his album into the deepest subconscious of the mind with his unique style and flow of his music. As in all the albums up to and including Watership Down they are instrumentals.Attic Thoughts has a darker more complex edge to it and the entire album stands up as excellent. Strongly recommended to anyone who might have missed Bo Hansson. Reclusive by music and reclusive by nature, Hansson demonstrates why he is such a good musician and why someone like Jimi Hendrix would have liked to have an occassional jam with!For the full impact listen to the whole album but the title track, ' Waiting..' , ' Day and Night' and the ever so clever ' Waltz for Interbeings' stand out.Side two has songs pertaining to Watership Down which no doubt acted as the catalyst for the next remarkable project.
