3 stars Viima were once known as the band "The Lost Spectacles" who later changed their name and released a stunning debut album under the name now of Viima. Led by the beautiful female vocals of Päivi Kylmänen (hate to say but carries a slight Annie Haslam quality) along with the excellent keyboard work of Kimmo Lähteenmäki (who also played drums in the sessions), guitarist/flautist Mikko Uusi-Oukari and bass player Jarmo Kataja deliver some great music here. This band and album reaches out on a few different directions with strong allusions to Camel, Renaissance and even some Arena. My favourite track is "Ilmalaiva Italia" which crossed the Porcupine Tree realm with some pretty moving musical moments. Generally the mood of this album is soft and symphonic but there are a few heavier guitar ripping sections too. I love the flute and keyboard symphonic passages which definitely remind me of classic Camel. Viima has really released a lovely album here for sure and I would recommend this album to everyone lover of Progressive Rock.
