CONTENT
(bold = exclusive track / normal = non-exclusive track / italic = non-metal)



Side A:
1. JOHNNY HAZARDS - Sandra (Nervösa Besvär)
  Alternative rock.
2. STRAX DE BYX - Det Var En Mardröm Här Inatt
  Rock.
3. CACTUS - Mina Vänner
  Boogie rock.
4. NOVEMBER - Utmaningen
  Folksy ballad. No relation to the 70's heavy/psych band with the same name.
5. ÖRTS ARRÅN - Barn
  Bluesy rock.
6. NEDERLAGET - Hopp Och Förväntan Del 1 Och Del 2
  Progressive rock meets ska pop?
7. POWER RAIN - Highway Patrol
  Raw junior-high boogie/punky HR with a simple but irresistably catchy chorus. Not total HM just yet but they later morphed into the amazing IRONSIDE, featured on Volym 2.

Side B:
1. ÖRTS ARRÅN - Ord
  Ska pop.
2. SEPPO IHME - The Chain Is Broken
  Slow pop/rock in a reggae tempo.
3. NOVEMBER - Vacation
  Rock. Still no relation to the 70's heavy/psych band with the same name.
4. JOHNNY HAZARDS - Det Börjar Verka Kärlek Banne Mig
  Rock.
5. SPIN AIR - Love And Fight
  Sort of bluesy/groovy 70's HR style verses topped by heavier, slightly NWOHM-tasting riffs on the chorus. Nice.
6. NEDERLAGET - Vakna
  Jazzy/proggy rock.
7. P.R.G. - Fröken Fröjd
  Punkish powerpop.
