 Hedningarna, 1989-2003
In the particular case of Hedningarna, each of their albums has a distinctive character to it, and a listener unfamiliar with the band would get a good sense of what each album is like if two or three songs from it were strung together.
If anything, people unfamiliar with Hedningarna who pick up this CD and are entranced by the sound should be strongly encouraged to purchase their other albums, because there is plenty more where that came from.
Hedningarna are one of the essential bands of the last fifteen years, and while 1989-2003 could have better, it does reflect enough of the band's many strengths to warrant a close inspection from any musically adventurous listener.

I've since heard that many of Hedningarna's songs are written as stories told by wilderness creatures -- animals, wolves and horses, and the humans who live far apart from civilized society in a place where birds stare down from the skies.
Hedningarna 1989-2003 is not for listening to during a car commute (unless you're pedal to the metal and want to leave Helsinki behind).
But Hedningarna is better listened to on a cold evening when the stars are frozen in the sky -- when you're huddled with a group of friends all wearing bearskin mittens around a log fire, and the honeyed mead is served in elk horns.

 World Music Central - CD Review: Hedningarna 1989-2003
Hedningarna (a Swedish word for heathen) eventually married traditional acoustic Swedish music with techno-beats and this rave consciousness comes through on the 1997 release, Hippjokk which includes the original trio along with guest vocalist Wimme.
Hedningarna, a forerunner of groups such as the Swedish band, Garmarna and Sami yoikster Wimme could be credited for the folk-roots-techno craze that is currently being exported out of most of the Scandinavian countries.
Hedningarna unwittingly cultivated the soil and planted seeds that have emerged as a new musical consciousness that revives traditional music and presents it to a younger audience.

Despite their orientation towards historic sound ideals, Hedningarna used electrically amplified instruments from the start, which resulted in a musical sound and language which was close to that of rock music.
In this new mixed music, the rock-influenced style (illustrated by Hedningarna, for example) takes the form of a pop/rock-influenced sound, a prominent heavy “beat” accompaniment and a recording technique where the microphones are placed extremely close to the artists.
Hedningarna thus belongs to the same category as a multitude of “world music groups” throughout the world.

One of the ground-breaking groups of the Scandinavian folk-revival movement, Hedningarna noisily channeled the spirit of ancient music through modern electronics.
Whether they sung of maidens, drunkards or mythical beasts, the group conjured up a slightly spooky, gothic place that seemed far removed from our gleaming modern world of technology.
