4 stars For me this version of Pekka Streng's anthem for consciousness expansion process is most precious. The band played also on his "Magneettimiehen Kuolema" album, but here Pekka is replaced with Eero Raittinen on vocals; A solution which first would not sound as appealing choice. However he managed to find here a really touching level to the vocal interpretation, shimmering with divine prophetic power. Also as the determined calm guitar chord progressions of Jukka's slighlty echoed electric guitar mingle with celestial melodic lines of Pekka Pöyry's flute, a transcendental tonal poem for these masterful lyrics is borne. Vesa Aaltonen creates tender waves supporting this wind of change, and the whole piece stands concrete and convincing as an obelisk of unearthly truth. I think the theme, finding gates within one's mind is universal, free from restirctions of values or cultural backgorunds, and can be achieced with any kind of method, most optimally with healthy lifestyle, will of understanindg the world from larger perspective, and evolve as a human being to grander direction. The B- side of the single "Selvä Näkijä" is more casual jazzy lounging in vein of the tracks from "Milky Way Moses" LP, and though the lyrical content has mystic themes, it deviates in my opinion from the concept of sacred revealed from the A-side's masterpiece. I belive this version of "Sisältäni Portin Löysin" is available from some Pressa's compillations, and I would be curious to hear other opinions about this song and version; Most possibly there are various insights to question what is most succesfully, this being my own sincere insight, and not being more than one truth among all circa truths of seven milliard and constanly alarmingly increasing.
