2 stars Wigwam's reunion from the 90's gathered together the three living members of the "Nuclear Nightclub" personnel. Drums are played by JAN NOPONEN, and MIKKO RINTANEN paints some light soundscapes with the keyboards, leaving still piano for the singer and main composer. This album continues the "less-artsy" evolvement of the band, and the result is professional adult oriented pop rock with some vintage features, like the vinyl's sound mimic in the start. The feeling is quite relaxed and positive, and the old days are being remembered with new performances of "Tombstone Valentine" and "Friend from The Fields", thus these don't bring much new content to these songs. "Absalom" is the longest track here, and the melody truly reminds of the classic hey day of this band, and it is repeated hypnotically, letting it grow with patience. The compositions done by both PEKKA RECHARDT and JIM PEMBROKE are clearly best here. Though I'm not very fond of this album, I would suggest the fans of "Nuclear Nightclub" to give it a listen, and also if peaceful slightly artistic AOR is your cup of tea, please take a sip of this!
