3 stars Third album from those crazy Finns, but this time with singer Tuomari Nurinio. Not that the music has changed that outside of the fact that the music has many vocal parts, but this interesting collaboration will hopefully remain just an anecdote in AV's career. Because one thing that does change with the appearance of vocals is the lesser role of instrumental interplay and much of the madness of their previous album. We are again hovering on eastern European jazz/gypsy influences as their previous two albums had before, but the vocals bring a more music-hall feel and I cannot help but thinking of Belgian gritty-voiced singer Arno doing his French-type of Chanson Franšaise with the same kind of orchestration (but the musicians are clearly not as good as AV, though). So in this album, AV does more "songs" rather tracks, pieces or numbers.

However, if the Cd did not appeal to me much, I must admit that the DVD of 5 tracks was much more fun. Not that the music played on the DVD differs from the one played in the Cd, but getting an occasion to see the music played before your very eyes is quite beneficial to the enjoyment of the music. Actually this short DVD saves the album from boredom.
