4 stars Modern Kaipa don't discover Americas or invent the wheel, but they deliver what you expect from them. I'm not a "big fan" or long term follower, but I like them. In fact I "discovered" them last year and liked their album. This year, they delivered another stellar record. Their secret weapons are guitarist Per Nilsson and violinist Elin Rubinsztein. Their solos are beautiful and really enhance the band's musical palette. Their solos always play in the right place at the right time, and last exactly as long as necessary! I'm not a big fan of their vocals, though. Aleena's vocal is ok, but often lacks warm and deep, in my opinion. But male vocal is even worse and often doesn't fit music. This is especially evident on the last song that is almost ruined by shrill, harsh male vocal that sound like cat's song in March. Brrrrr.... Oh, yeah, he is one of the leading female vocal in Swedish prog, apparently, as I read recently...:) Thankfully, that doesn't last long, and then violin and guitar turn this song that started so miserable into another nice musical journey. Just like in the case with The Tangent and their vocals, these guys would rather shut up and play, really! :)
