3 stars Wigwam's being feels like a bit of a step down from Fairyport, their masterpiece. It's my understanding that the album caused a bit of tension in the band, with some members having a problem with the extremely politicised lyrics. It's not the words that irritate me, though, than the delivery. In particular, the album's momentum is wrecked by Pride of the Biosphere, which consists of a long monologue about horrible crimes delivered in a comedy "old man" voice that rapidly gets on my nerves, with an absolutely tepid musical backing of aimless noodling. When Wigwam get their minds back on the music the album is still a decent piece of eccentric Finnish fusion, but the tension in the band tells here. Disappointing.
