3 stars Now perhaps I am throwing stones in a glass house. I am going to say some words about a new record that has got a lot of appreciation and I appreciate it too, even if I can't like it as much as I perhaps want. Someone have to be the first to not give this record five stars and suddenly it became me.

Corvus Stone is a group of talanted musicians from different places and they have recorded two records since 2012: "Corvus Stone" that year and "Corvus Stone II" now 2014. The cover makes you curious with a cosy environment and an interesting girl standing in the middle. Together with a lot of guests the band consists of Colin Tench(guitar), Petri Lemmy Lindström(bass), Pasi Koivu(keyboards) and Robert Wolff(drums & percussion).

This is a good record, I will start with saying that. There is a lot of complexity and fine instrumental pieces but in my opinion the whole loses because of a lot of fillers and some sleepy long tracks too. The best track though is also the longest "Moaning Lisa" is in most aspects lovely and something you listen to with a big smile on your lips(8/10). I like the vocalist on that track very much too. "Mr Cha Cha" is also one of my favourites(8/10) with great instrumental passages. The shorter starter "The simple life" and the closer "Campfire"(with great Finnish vocals) fit my taste of music well too(8/10) just as "Early morning call" and "Sneaky entrance in to Lisa"(8/10).

I think the record loses on its length. Beside from the songs I mentioned there are no songs that aspirates to be masterpieces. Almost every song is good and you will have a pleasant time when you put the record on. But how nice I think this is I have hard to see how it could have gained so much unconditional appreciation. I will give the record three solid stars. My song to song rating gave me the average 3.38 stars.
