3 stars Kaipa is a band which I have different opinions about. Their record "Vittjar" didn't affect me but this "In the Wake of Evolution" had been hard to leave. I have listened to it many times and love it partially. This is Kaipa's tenth record and its fifth after the reunion 2002. It lasts for 70 minutes and the line up is just professional musicians. I will rate it quite low to be honest to myself but perhaps I will higher it later on.

Kaipa do has some ingredients I like: skillfull musicians, a lot of folk music in the melodies and a high ambition to do symphonic music of this modern ages. But I can't get rid of the feeling that it is partially just extended and I do not really like Patrik or Aleena's voices all the time. "Electric Power Water Notes" which is the album's longest track is also the best, a wonderful mixture of folk and symphonic rock with themes you can't get tired of. Also "Folkia's first decision", the albums shortest work is very good, it feels honest and clear. "The Seven Oceans of Our Mind" works also well with the two vocalists and "In the Heart of Her own magic field" is a track where Aleena does a great job and its melody is sweeping and great.

I don't think any track is weak but something's stopping me from giving this record four stars. But as I wrote before, I have hard to leave this record and use to pick it up when I'm in the right mood, so future will tell if this rating was fair.
