Review by Jimbo
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Whether intentional or not, the title of the album is actually a very good indicator of what to expect. Back after 16 years, Light Ages essentially sees Wigwam continuing on the same path they left off many years ago. Obviously, Ronnie Österberg isn't here anymore, which is a shame, and Mikko Rintanen had replaced Hessu Hietanen on keyboards, but apart from that, there are not many changes to their overall sound. Sure, the album is quite possibly the "lightest" Wigwam album in many ways, the whole band seems relaxed, and full of "spirit", so to speak. The album has four old Wigwam songs with new versions, and nine totally new tracks. While I thoroughly enjoyed the new versions (especially Tombstone Valentine), I still think those were more or less pointless. I would've preferred to hear completely new material, but I guess we don't live in an ideal world, eh? Some of the new compositions have a slight AOR-ish twist to them (not exactly my cup of tea), but for the most part, this is good old Wigwam playing their very own "deep pop". Mikko Rintanen on keyboards fits the band nicely, and offers some very tasty keyboard solos during the album. Rekku Rechardt - well, no need to mention him at all, he's always superb! Absalom is a downright Wigwam classic nowadays - and for good reason. A couple of the tracks sound a tad uninspired, namely False Alarm and possibly Pleasure Street, but that's just a minor complaint. Overall, Light Ages is surely a good album. While it doesn't reach the level of their masterpieces, it's still a very worthy effort, and brings a smile to my face everytime I hear it. That's all what matters, right?

2 stars Wigwam's reunion from the 90's gathered together the three living members of the "Nuclear Nightclub" personnel. Drums are played by JAN NOPONEN, and MIKKO RINTANEN paints some light soundscapes with the keyboards, leaving still piano for the singer and main composer. This album continues the "less-artsy" evolvement of the band, and the result is professional adult oriented pop rock with some vintage features, like the vinyl's sound mimic in the start. The feeling is quite relaxed and positive, and the old days are being remembered with new performances of "Tombstone Valentine" and "Friend from The Fields", thus these don't bring much new content to these songs. "Absalom" is the longest track here, and the melody truly reminds of the classic hey day of this band, and it is repeated hypnotically, letting it grow with patience. The compositions done by both PEKKA RECHARDT and JIM PEMBROKE are clearly best here. Though I'm not very fond of this album, I would suggest the fans of "Nuclear Nightclub" to give it a listen, and also if peaceful slightly artistic AOR is your cup of tea, please take a sip of this!

2 stars Light Ages was Wigwam's return to the fold after a long hiatus lasting for 16 years. Lots had happened in the meantime, both in band members' lives and in music in general. In 1977, when Dark Album came out, prog was already out and punk in. Neo-prog had come and gone in the 80s, and in 1993 the ... (read more)

4 stars Wigwams first comeback album! It sounds like old Wigwam, perhaps little bit harder and stronger and Rekku is in a very good shape! There is some old songs with like excellent Talking brought me here, Friend fron the fields and No new games. Those version are brilliant! Rekku shines on guitar! ... (read more)
