4 stars Captivating sophomore effort from this Finnish outfit.

Apparently a more folk-oriented act on their debut album, a more or less total change of crew have also resulted in a different approach on this follow-up.

Vintage sounding progressive rock is the main result; dominated by symphonic elements but also bborrowing a fair few elements from folk, classical and jazz. In overall sound Camel often comes to mind - that is the parts of their production with a jazz and folk tinge rather than the ones with a more mainstream oriented sound - and in the most majestic moments there's also a fair likeness to Genesis (from the era long before they admitted not to be able to dance mind you).

The closing epic, which also covers about half the length of this production, is the one with less obvious influences to it though. Organ and mellotrons aplenty see to it that the sound is distinctly vintage though; and the overall scope of the composition is tangibly more symphonic than the rest of this excursion.

In short - those who appreciate symphonic prog as it was made in the 70's better put this one one their shortlist of stuff to check out.
