5.0 out of 5 stars
Absolute gem of an album, 25 Mar. 2011
As I write this review, the amazon bestselling ranking is somewhere south of 11,000.
Excellent, only a few mortals will ever know what the rest are missing and I can be smug in my knowledge that I have found something that the rest of world (except Finland) will never hear. The music is vibrant, exciting and lyrical. It rocks, it has harmony, it has passion, it takes its time. It has suspense and glorious moments where the music takes off in other directions and to another level. All the tracks stand out.
I have tried to compare it with other bands from the past, but I cannot pigeonhole the sound. I'll leave that for others to do but this is a record for the modern age and does not hark back to old sounds.
Fans of Be Bop Deluxe, Rush, Blondie, Ayreon, Led Zeppelin and any other band that can mix harmonies and melody with quick rocking rhythms will enjoy this.
