Review by Matti
3 stars On this album the labeling as Metal is more accurate than on any others I've heard from CMX this far. And that's why I actually skipped most of the tracks within half a minute, because heavy metal is just not for me. If some of the tracks would evolve enormously from the beginning's usual heavy banging, I'm sorry. Hopefully the next reviewer is better into this sort of rock. But still - in addition to myself being the only active CMX reviewer this far - I think even this kind of review based on incomplete listening (I can see some of you shake your heads horrified!) is useful, especially others not so keen on Metal.

Fortunately there are four tracks that are not Metal. The finest is definitely 'Revontulten repijä' ("The tearer of aurora borealis"), a very slow and very dark-mooded song, genuine CMX. The closest one to pop-rock is 'Minun sydämeni on särkynyt' ("My heart's broken"), comparable to some of Aura album's calmer tracks but not as good. Also 'Silmien takana' ("Behind eyes") and 'Tuulilukko' ("Wind lock") are very identifiable as CMX, slightly rockier but still far from heavy. To me these four tracks represent the goodness of the whole album, but to a metal fan this is maybe one of the more recommendable CMX albums.
