4 stars Pekka Pohjola has been a source of inspiration for this listener, one of the most consistent musicians who delivered in all his albums not only great music but great writing.

What we have here is a magical album if you enjoy Pekka's music, all compositions are his save 1 collaboration and UMOi s by far and wide a great band, a music institution that counts with professional players in its ranks.

When musicians step out of "your" confort zone, meaning a style that challenges you or you do not fancy, then the listener is put in a difficult position, how to rate an album in a style you do not appretiate or like?

A different album it is if you are expecting the Pekka Pohjola of always, however, this jewel may bring enormous pleasure if listened in its own right.

A 4.5 star for me ... however the rating isn't possible so I have to settle for a 4
