Review by Marty McFly
2 stars Of course, it's a good record, actually pretty good psychedelic/heavy prog. Except first terrible, completely ugly and nasty song, because of which I almost threw this record away in anger and stomped over it gazillion times (think jiggawats) to shred it to the microscopic dust particles.

This fortunately didn't happen. However, if this song reminds me something, it is "Trout Mask Replica", which is my prog Nemesis number one. Except this, other tracks are quite different, following path of Eclectic prog (but not as much as KC, or VdGG), they simply remains mild and calmer during late minutes of this album, to the extent that they became something, undefinable, mellow keyboards driven thing that escapes definitions. Again. Some songs (variant on "some argue") sounds even like rock 'n' roll more than prog.

And everything is extremely rough, raw and sounds almost like demo. Not bad quality of sound, but of record instead. But at the same moment, there's beauty of flute passages with minimalistic sound (and almost lacking other instruments), reminding me old classic films from 40-50's. Very weird feeling, which I haven't had for a long time.

4(-) with skipping first song, or at least only to play it when I'm "in mood". Some songs, however, are extraordinary and are little bit "out", reaching high ratings and conceptions, while others are just nice fillers, with not so heavy weight. Unequal album.

4 stars Haikara is a quite famous Finnish band which first and second records have gained a lot of appreciation. This third record though seems to be forgotten. It has an ugly cover, low rating and it's perhaps impossible to get outside Finland, I don't know. Well I saw it on Spotify and couldn't resi ... (read more)

1 stars (2/10) First to second album was somewhat of a change for Haikara, but second to third was a drastic change. The band is now almost entirely removed from the music of their excellent debut. This is strange, because a lot of things are the same. The cover art is still weird, the instruments are th ... (read more)

4 stars This is absolutely hardest to find of every Haikara albums. I have only borrowed it from the library couple of times and there is only one Iso Lintu vinyl in only one library of whole Helsinki area. It haven´t been released in cd format. That´s real pity, because this one is also very good, th ... (read more)
