4 stars In the mid-90's, the excellent Ken Golden, founder of the Laser's Edge label, found time and money to reissue some of Finland's best (but then-sadly forgotten) group, Finnforest, by releasing their first two albums on a single disc. According to a few Scandic prog experts, the sound was dramatically improved.

The only two possible critics that I could have against this release, is that it ignores the band's third album, released after the band's reformation in 78, and that has yet to find a CD reissue (at least to my knowledge), while the second objection is that it doesn't feature one of the album's respective original artwork (parachute and lonely trees), but replaces it with typically Finnish taiga picture. Outside these minor recriminations, this is a splendid indispensable release that every Scandinavian JR/F lovers must own.
