4 stars Maybe their heaviest album up to date. They really go all the way on this album, incorporating fusion, metal, progrock, spacerock and world music.

The emphasis of Taipuva was and will always be rhythm and athmosphere. The only solos you can expect are synthsolos, on this album there are even more guitarsolos, but again the emphasis is musical interplay. There's even a lot organ on this album. The rhythm changes are unheard of although their album IV has more difficult fusion-like parts, this album also has some really interesting and difficult rhythmparts. More rock/metal than before, but not too much.

The production is better and phatter than before. The songs really build and build and have quite moments, real dynamic sections and heavy explosions. But never losing track, Always great melodies and nice riffing. The band drew influences from bands like Camel, King Crimson, Gong, Ozric Tentacles and on this album even Tool. But the band is really unique in what they do. I can't think of any band that does what they do.

I can really recommend this album to anyone, who wants to hear really skilled musicians going at it.

Kingsnake | 4/5 |
