4 stars Uzva are one of the best bands from Finland these days. Their style that mixes folk, jazz, classical and other influences is always a joy to hear. It seems they have taken many influences (Tasavallan Presidentti, Oldfield and many others) but their sound is still pretty much their own. This is their first album and even though most debutes sound quite uneven and not ready yet, this doesn't. This is a very strong debut from start to finish. This IMO perhaps isn't as good as their second album but almost. The overall sound is also quite similar. There's really not much difference between the two. I agree with Eemu, it is really hard to get a firm grip of their music because the themes are always evolving but it doesn't bother me. Uzva's sound is so warm, cozy and pleasant that sometimes it's hard for me to change the disc when the album ends. The music is really mellow most of the time with beautiful violin and clarinet passages. Acoustic guitar is also present most of the time. Uzva have become one of my favorite finnish bands and I would recommend this album basically to anyone who enjoys a beautiful and relaxing album.
