2 stars This album is in my opinion a quite poor and uninspired sequel to the mediocre self-titled debut of this late 1970's Finnish rock band. Their first record can be justly be called as "prog", as it took it influences from early 1970's British prog groups, but this stuff is more straightforward, powerless and grey pop rock. The religious-critical and metaphorical lyrics of Mikko Alatalo have here been changed as their antithesis; Simpleminded and noncritical gospel lyrics. Also the flute player has been lost so the sound textures are here duller to listen. "Aamukasteen laiva" ("Ship of the morning dew" or something) stands as a singular insight to the values of beautifulness on this album for me. I wouldn't recommend this album except for those who are really interested of late 1970's Finnish music or anything even slightly prog related.
