4 stars What could come after real masterpiece? Of course, album which is rigorously compared with this one. There are too little cases in Rock (and actually in whole music) history, when any artist had created two or more masterpieces consecutively. The "know-how" holds perhaps genuine masters only. Propriate names let fill in every man for himself...

And thatīs the case of these Finnish talented (but Goodness knows why less known) brothers. After excellent and breathtaking album "Love Remains The Same" is coming another piece, "Stars Aligned". What then we could expect? Flop, average or another successful album?

I mean third option is valid. Not disappointment at all! Five stars is overly though, but this album earns solid and righteous four stars, concededly. Main characters there are (like on another Von Hertzen albums) strong lead vocal and perfect harmonized backing vocals, pleasant but not obtrusive melodies, vitality and passion irradiating from each song, accomplished musicianship of all band members, and, of course, excellent production. I like occasional using of traditional Oriental or Scandinavian folk elements too!

***** songs: I Believe, Miracle, Gloria, Angelīs Eyes, Down By The Sea

**** songs: Voices In Your Heads, Bring Out The Snakes, Repeat Mode, Always Been Right

What to throw in? Surely thatīs an extraordinary album from multi-talented, although (meanwhile) undiscovered young band. Iīm impatiently expecting their next work!
