4 stars 4.5 really

Art Deco is a young and very talented band from Finland formed around 2004 who manage to release their first album this year 2013 in summer, named Syvään Uneen. Well, from the start I'm saying that is probably my fav album from 2013 and one of the most original releases in last years for sure. The band combining in a great manner and with style diffrent genres, from eclectic prog moments melted with experimenta/avan-prog elements, art rock passages, pop sensibilities the result is a fantastic journey in Art Deco musical landscapes. They sung in finish and is very well, because this languge it fits perfectly in the music. Vocal lines provided by Jaana Mäkinen is absolutely jaw dropping for me, such a powerful female singer I never heared for quite some time, there are some real acrobatics in her voice that make me really enjoy the singing at the highest level. The guitars and keyboards are particulary very strong, sometimes it sounds like in the mid '80's, specially the keyboards, has that pop/art rock feel, very good btw. The guitars are awesome at best, such inventive arrangements here on every piece, original and quite memorable. All pieces are strong with a plus one Säveltäjä , just check out the Jaana voice , incredible range, Ikuiseen Uneen is another highlight for me that capture that long gone '80s atmosphere with keybords having almost an '80s feel, very nice. The album is digipak format with very nice artwork is available at finish label Runningmoose. For me a great discover and one of the best albums I've ever heared. 4.5 stars for this little masterpiece. Highly recommended.
