4 stars This album continues the musical process of LANDBERK, and it truly is a release which resembles their last "Indian Summer" album, only that the lady singer makes this band sound much more pleasant, and the players have had time to mature their skills and stylistic vision.

"Sensor" opens with smooth jazzy tunes, which quickly take a dramatic turn by Reine's strong chords. There are some very powerful "flight sequences" where the tempo slows, and a strong carpet of Mellotrons fill the space. "Hypnotique" is a long, dreamy Mellotron ballad, also sounding very much of the late LANDBERK. One of my favorite songs by this band! "Téa", which is about then yet unborn child of of Petronella and Huxfulx, begins in the similar moods like the song before, but later it gets more stronger turns, and it brings forth the stylistic pathos suggested in the bands name ("Pathos" in Finnish!). "They Are Beautiful" is also a good clam song, but the last song "Quits" is the only number here which doesn't please me, due to my personal antipathies towards trip-hop music. But if you like that kind of stuff too, then add the missing fifth star to my rating. Recommended warmly, and the fans of 90's Swedish Mellotron renaissance can't live without this!
