3 stars This Finnish prog/fusion/jazz band can make complex and loaded patterns here! Indeed there are some bits where the drums and bass combination can easily be compared to the peak moments of Frank ZAPPA and BRAND X. The music itself sounds a bit like Canterbury bands (CARAVAN), at least the keyboards and guitars. Only 3 weak points: the guitar sound is very gross and bland, despite the guy gives elaborated wah wah effects; the lead vocals are very ordinary; the compositions, apart the outstanding technical performance, does not seem to retain the attention. There are many saxes and flute parts which give a jazzy tendency to the ensemble. The bass is never timid, it is the main attraction here: it is some sort of mini GRAND FUNK or Il VOLO bass.
