3 stars It's true that the vocals remind one of Bjork and Portishead but this band has one huge advantage. While those two build their layers atop sometimes tedious electronica, Paatos has some killer players to build on. The drummer Ricard is especially noteworthy, his playing just so expressive (especially live) and yet he's not a show off like others. All of the musicians are at the top of their game without disturbing the delicate trance-like vocal melodies. Smooth atmospheric meloncholy with outbursts of volume on occasion to snap you back to attention.

I'm not a digi-pak fan but my edition came with a live DVD that makes the package even more tasty.

Good, though clearly not essential to a progressive collection. In reality this is alternative rock that I would put alongside my albums by Portishead, Bjork, Garbage, and Mazzy Star to name a few. But it is very enjoyable and of high musical quality.
