4 stars My positive review should be seen as a viewpoint of a Finn, and I'm not surprised if this release would be a disappointment for a non-Finnish listener. I adored on this collaboration how Tuomari Nurmio's presence tamed the vigorous approach of Alamaailman Vasarat to more tamer and moody art rock impressionis, as I did not like their own typical way of humoristic aggression from previous records or concert encounters. All of them are skillful musicians certainly, so this is an evident case of personal musical taste preferences. Many albums of Tuomari Nurmio are too basic pop music for me to enjoy, excluding his rootsy debut and few experimental later recordings, this synthesis creating something fine from between these constrasting worlds. "Arabian Kuu" (Arabian Moon) criticizes bitterly the American foreign policy practiced in the Middle-East, and the song themes move lyrically much in the Piritori-hoods of Kallio district. The band concept lingers near the King Crimson's double trio setup, but emphasizing more acoustic leanings. Moody art music from the alleys of unpolished truths.
