3 stars "It's A Fudge"? Wacky title, huh? Well although the album itself is not exactly a fudge, it sure is nothing to stop the presses for either. The band, Tuna Laguna, are a 6 piece instrumental band out of Norway and "It's A Fudge" is everyone's first introduction to this band. Although now out of print in CD form, this album can be downloaded free of charge and legally from the bands website,

The music is very trance-like and capturing at first, but after each song starts to go on for about 3 minutes you as a listener will start to succumb to the natural "when are they going to do something fresh!?!" type of boredom that comes from a band's first venture into an album. I'm not saying the album lacks originality, I'm saying that each song drains the originality from the album. Each song is a fresh and creative little breakthrough at first, until the freshness and creativity is completely sucked out playing the same melody over and again.

This is a very well recorded and produced album, and for an EP it is a pretty good little slice of music. However, if this were not available at no charge I doubt it would have the listeners it does, therefore it would never stand up to any successful albums, let alone EP's.

I encourage everyone to download this EP from that link and at least give this band a listen, it may be your thing or it may not be, however it is fairly fresh and original even if they do cross the line into boredom. 3 stars.
