5 stars This album has same great quality as the some other great Abso-albums (Muovi Antaa Periksi, Suljettu, Olos, Nimi Muutettu, Mahlanjuoksuttaja and Pisara ja Lammas 1 & 2). After making quite prog concept album Suljettu Absoluutinen Nollapiste released more pop album Olos. In Nimi Muutettu there are slightly more prog elements and in this album there are even more. Keyboardplayer Janne Hast was just a quest in this album, but his part in this album is quite remarkable.

"Kerro Ketä Ajattelit" (=tell me who you were thinking) begins album really prog way and powerfully. There are calm, beautiful part in the middle of the song. Hast is playing hammond sounding organ very great way. Next "Viikon Perehtymisjakso" (=one week familiarizing period) has hewing beat, but very beautiful chorus with slide guitar playing. "Täytyy Muistaa" (=I have to remember) is funky piece that also has quite beautiful chorus. "Tyynyn Kääntöpuoli" (=the Other side of the pillow) is the strangest piece in this album, it reminds more Mew than Abso. "Parta"(=beard) is short instrumental industrial noise piece. Jarrutan (=I slow down) is also funky pieces, but has very Genesis-sounding guitars. "Käsitys Lastenlapsista" (=my idea of my grandchildren) is very beautiful song including only keyboards and violin behind vocals. "Mustaa Ei Ole" (=There is no black colour) has very great, quite dark atmosphere. There is also short solo piece that reminds Pekka Pohjola`s works. This longest song has also really prog ending where every member of the band does their best. But progmusic continues very great way in next "Kultainen Leikkaus" (=Golden Ratio). It has some Wigwam in it, that has given influences to Abso. Keyboards make great work in this piece. "Nummirock" (=Heathrock) is very melodic piece including again great keyboard playing from Hast. Instrumental ending "Sinetti" (=Seal) is one of the greatest piece in this album with its strong melody and female voice singing it.

You can´t say this totally prog album, but this album is just full of great music with prog elements. Really good works as a great opener to someone, who hasn´t heard anything from this band. Really hope we hear something about their coming albums soon.
