Review by Warthur
2 stars Having heard Pekka Pohjola's first four solo albums before taking on this one, this one came across as something of a departure to me, dominated as it is by synthesisers. It comes across as an attempt to blend classical choral work with New Agey synthesiser meditations, and whilst there's nothing inherently silly about that idea at the same time I don't think it works particularly successfully here; rather than creating a whole which is greater than the sum of its parts, I feel that the album ends up adding subpar New Age music to subpar choral music and ends up with something mildly more irritating than either of its halves.

Those who come to Pekka's music specifically looking for his Zappa-esque hyperactive workouts or his more sedate fusion styles (as seen in albums such as Visitation) will find this album a disappointing oddity. Those who are particularly interested in fusions of electronic music and choral music might consider this a worthwhile attempt, but I'm sure there's better examples of this sort of thing out there.

The two first albums (1972 & 1974) and ''Visitation'' ... (read more)

5 stars Awesome organ choral masterwork! Pekka's organ choral masterwork is not one of Bach's but majestic anyway. In this work Pekka proves, again, his capability of creating meaningful music with utmost style. I have not heard a bad album by Pekka and this is in the same category as the others, grea ...

5 stars This is truly a monumental album - most of the music is slow and dark in a heavy, yet not distorted manner. It appears to be the soundtrack of an Finnish TV-film. Unfortunately I haven't seen it but judging from the music I suspect it to be as dark as the winter night up north. ... (read more)
