3 stars Rejoice, all prog fans! Here we have some good music that, on top of it all, you can dance to!

All seriousness aside, this is a very very good album. I've been spinning a lot recently, getting used to the intense craziness that this band offers. Up until this point, I've never heard any band with this type of style of music. They have the really fast point where you lose your head in the intensity (usually a good thing here), and you have the slow parts with the inventive themes that pull you in. Even though not every track is a full winner, they are basically all fun and, as I said before, you can dance to almost every one of them. And who doesn't love that.

My favorite song on the album is, probably, the very first song, kicking off the album in a whirlwind of crazy polka-ish music. The other songs cover many different music forms as well. Slower songs like Lakeus have slow, building themes, which is followed right by Unikkotango, and you don't need to know Finnish to know that this is indeed one unique tango (even though I don't think that's the actual translation, according to the above track listing). And of course, there's the insane fast happy-go-lucky march of Kebab tai henki! Tankkaustunti just scares you to death with its opening riff, and so on and so forth. Of course, the other songs are worthwhile, but these just show the different form of song on the album.

If you have an open mind, get the album and see what you think. It is one unique experience, I can tell you that much. 3/5 stars.
