4 stars Quite a surprise, this is music that is not so easy to define, to understand, but quite easy to listen. For sure nothing that I would expect from Finland.

Hammond organ driven songs, full of energy (guitar solos - sometimes normal, harmonic stuff, but there are also disharmonic parts which are closer to jamming than to solos, Heavy parts) and there is 70s strong feeling (as usual, combined with some new elements).

Flaws would probably be good old quote "Hey, I have heard something like that before" (that I don't care about too much) and spoken parts (which aren't so enjoyable for me, rather annoying).

Datle's vocals (Datle means plural form of "Date Palm" in Czech, my language) aren't bad, maybe she shouts little too much (also not my liking in this case). Some parts are trying to be atmospheric and indeed, they're successful I have to say.

However, the biggest advantage here is that it will surprise you. Range of this album is very big and even everything has keyboards flavour, it still should be interesting for many people.

4(-), good one and unexpected hit from Finlandia.
