3 stars This album is not a Tasavallan Presidentti-album. It should be Pekka Streng with Tasavallan Presidentti. The music could be described as psychedelic folk. Lyrics play an important role here so recommending this album to non-finnish person is a bit questonable. However this is an important album in Finnish rock-history.

Pekka Streng was a quiet, mystic person and he avoided publicity. He died very young after making two excellent albums. So he has become quite a mystic character.

The album has a very naive and fairytale-like tone. Acoustic guitars are the main instrument here, some clean electric guitars here and there played by Jukka Tolonen, bongos. Very peaceful music.

This is an important part of Finnish music but I don´t think there´s much for others here. Or I don´t might as well enjoy this. I do.
