4 stars Nowdays when you get an album by an ubderground artist tagged "prog", it usually means pretentious, Pink Floyd and King Crimson rip-off, boring. This is not the case with this young finnish band. This is another release that i came across though the city wich both I and the band comes from, and it was a pleasant surprise. The band's sound is guitar based and sometimes amost poppy sound, with keyboards and occasional heavy parts. Nice soundscapes create a great contrast with the music, all without sounding out of place. Beautiful vocals perfectly fit the beautiful music, both keep progressing and changing though the LP. My favourite song is the closer in which all the elements meld together succesfully, and Meanwhile that contains some quite memorable and very beautiful melodies.

The musicians sound professional and the recording quality is very high considering this was done without a record label. The CD maintains a good ol' LP length under 40 minutes and only 6 tracks, which is always a plus because it's usually hard to keep focused for 80 minutes. The CD is quite easy-listened and enjoyable, in the car, at a party or home. Very fresh and young music, check them out and buy the CD, support them even if you don't like it. I give them 7.5 out of 10.
