4 stars As it frequently happens these days, young bands amaze me more than veterans, nevermind the genre. Finnish 'cranes', KURKI, lead by a gorgeous girl (yep, female vocals!), is a kind of such band too. I don't even know their names (and the exact number of musicians, too!), but all I know is that they're wonderful. Imagine a mix of late ANEKDOTEN, early LANDBERK, folksy ESPERS and post-trip- hoppy PAATOS, and you'll get the idea of KURKI's manner of playing music. As usual, there's more than this; lush arrangements, gentle melodies, top-notch musicianship, and the result is 35 minutes of a pure bliss! Besides, if you're lucky to get the vinyl version (there are no CDs, only vynil and digital download versions of KURKI's debut album), spot the artwork, it's nothing but brilliant! I'm happy to notice such good debuts this year from EQUUS, DAY WITHOUT DAWN (already defunct, ha-ha) and now KURKI, astonishing Finnish melancholic Modern Prog! 4,5 stars! Extremely recommended!!!
