3 stars It's not that usual to learn about yet another fusion band from Sweden. I was fairly to eager to give a spin to the premiere album by Wasa Express. After it stopped playing I could say I was satisfied with what I had heard. Overall mood could be marked as fusion-infected but you'll also notice traces of more commercial music styles such as funk (Masseur,Doing the korpraal)or hard-rock (Wood-boog,Cadillac) which does not necessarily mean it's a bad idea. However, in this particular case I find those other-genres trips a bit distracting and I didn't admire Wasa Express branch of funk.

Music is dominated by guitar, instrumentation is fine and vocals are not missed in any way even though there are to be heard occassionally. The best song for me is by far the first track, a fiery piece of fusion battle which makes you jump from your seat. Just that it could have been longer. Another highlight is New tuna,

This album is worth listening although it won't broaden your musical horizon. On the other hand it offers fun and joy of playing music. I wonder what other Wasa Express albums are like. The band are still alive and kicking, playing gigs and composing new music.
