3 stars Nurkostam is a young band from Finland totaly unknown to me until few month ago. This is their first full length album from 2009 after 2 EP released.. Hmm, at first spin I was not impressed at all, realy , another one of those bands that embrace a moder prog sound, not far from Porcupine Tree fame, but aswell melted with passages that remind me of King Crimson, folk parts, some more symphonic ones, a soup that turned to be ok in the end after more listnings, but for sure nothing groundbreaking. Definetly I don't find the neo prog elements here, and why is puted under neo prog flag, is kinda missleading for listners. The album sounds pretty sterile and in places lifeless, specialy the drums sounds to cold for my taste. The arrangements overall are not entirely bad, there are some good moments that worth purchase this release like on Until We Sleep, The Dreamer or The Camel Song, the rest are quite ok but nothing realy to talk about. So, in the end , hardly 3 stars, maybe in the future they will come with more solid parts, because this album, even is not totaly forgettable is very dull and with monotonous parts.
