5 stars ...and I had to wait two years! But got reward of it. This part 2 has maybe little bit more seventies sounds than the first. The story continues immediately. Album starts with strong beats and continues very beautiful and dramatic way, when shepherd is near the bed of his dying mother. Next "Taverna" is again very progsong with many parts. The same kind of synth sound is to be heard, when drop moves from sheep to lady, as it was heard in the first part when it fell into sheep´s neck."Sovinto" (=reconciliation) is a acoustic piece. "Lammas Matkustaa" (the sheep travels) is quite straightforward, but very beautiful piece. "Heinäsirkka" (=grasshopper) is again very prog piece with very apocalyptic atmosphere. "Saapuminen Planeetalle" (=arrival into planet) and "Muodonmuutos Heikentää" (=shapesifting weakens) are a little bit more straightforward songs, but prog elements come back in "Kirves Tummuu" (=axe is getting darker). It has some themes from the first album, also the ending music piece after words "ash sucks all the light itself" really describes those words. Then comes "Synnytys" (=birth). This piece starts same way as the earlier record song "Lammas Saa Vainun", but soon changes little bit lighter. The last song "Paljastuminen" (=exposure) is really dark and depressing. There is partly same theme as there was when shepherd was with his dying mother. The words "child gurgles dead language and goes backward" gets really describing music. The song ends into silent piano and vocals. After that comes "Loppusoitto" (=grande finale) which is same theme as prelude. It´s almost too glad after that horrifying end, but like in Greek plays, it releases listener to all the distress of the end.

These albums causes many questions. Of course there can´t be just good without bad, because with bad you also know what´s good, but how about the planet where is no good? Are we going into that direction? Also in this album shepherd can´t pass his destiny, also not the lady. So if you believe in destiny, is there any reasons to try to change it?

Absoluuttinen Nollapiste really made the albums with lots of thoughts. But is the reason the albums have not been very much in the front that people today doesn´t want to think these kind of thoughts? With this kind of world as today I think we should. It´s of course always possible the plays of the ancient Greek, that handle the good and the bad and the unconscious of the mankind didn´t make their society better. Anyway I think we need the bands like Absoluuttinen. They´ve said they will make more albums, even another concept album in the future, but at least this year they have been very quiet.

Mortte | 5/5 |
