5 stars I finally got the remastered (2003) of this beauty. Wow, the whole album is great, but the last song - Try to remember - is just definitive Pekka Pohjola.

The blending of real brass/woodwinds/strings is what makes this that unique experience in the catalogue of Pekka's. Not that he doesn't do it elsewhere, it's just that it's quite focused, and yet not obtrusive, just complementary. And of course his musicianship, along with the other masterful players is so natural that you don't even notice it.

For me, that illusive; playing your butt off, no one notices because the music is so good, is what seems to separate real musicians and composition from the over aggressive types. And for some reason the Euro's just do this so well.

Another fine entry in the sadly completed cannon of Mr. Pekka Pohjola. Long live Pekka, long live progressive music.
