5 stars On the surface this is a stylistic return to an album Pohjola did 5 years before this one, heavy on winds plus additional strings. But so much progress can be heard since "B the Magpie" when it comes to the actual compositions and the performance. It is better balanced harmony and better musicians backing up Pohjola (even though he's the one in the rhythm section!). There are some tracks that come close to modern big band style, for example "Image of a Passing Smiles". "Vapour Trails" on the other hand is (almost) a straightforward rocker and "Strange Awakening" is more in the chamber style of early 20th century. Really you can do no wrong with this album, everything is still sounding fresh aftter almost thirty years. The best Pohjola album and essential addition to any prog rock collection.
