4 stars I consider this album continuing partly the musical heritage of Landberk. "Timeloss" resembles their last "Indian Summer" album, being a well-produced tender art rock record with angular contrasts. For me the lady singer makes this band much more pleasant to listen, and the players have had time to mature their skills and stylistic vision even yet further. "Sensor" opens the record with smooth jazzy tunes, which quickly take a dramatic turn by Reine's strong guitar chords. There are some very powerful "flight sequences" where the tempo slows, and thick carpet of Mellotrons elevate the listener. "Hypnotique" stands as long and dreamy Mellotron ballad, also sounding very much of the late Landberk via its sorrowful melodic turns. "Téa" is written to unborn child of Petronella and Huxfulx from the time of composing, beginning in the similar moods like the song before, but later getting more hectic turns, bringing forth the stylistic pathos suggested by band's name (Paatos meaning "Pathos" in Finnish). "They are Beautiful" is also a good calm song, but the last song "Quits" is the only number here which didn't please me, due to my personal antipathies towards trip-hop music. But if you like that kind of stuff too, it is difficult to realize what factors on this album from the 1990's Swedish Mellotron renaissance scene could be seen negative. Recommended warmly.
