4 stars 'The Deep End' is a spellbinding EP recently forwarded from Finland to us prog fans. Roundabout thirty minutes playing time, composed by the longtime musical companions Sami Sarhamaa and Olli Huhtanen, who both also provide the complete guitar, bass, keyboard and vocal stuff. While they aren't defining something totally new concerning the stylistical aspect, eh, I know, difficult enough anyway, the five compositions all are real winners. So this is featuring sense of melancholy and melody, diverse stages, moods and technical skills. All in all it appeals, is convincing me very much in its entirety. This also due to drummer Miri Miettinen, who is a great addition to that staff.

Gravest Danger kicks off with an atmospheric feel, later evolves to a more straightforward rocking issue. Perfect sound mix all over the place, resulting in an enjoyable lush experience. Scales then offers some psychedelic reminiscence to Pink Floyd for the first time, later continued with the title track Deep End. LIGHTHOUSE SPARROWS are offering really entertaining and gripping arrangements, also comparable to the likes of RPWL or Airbag maybe, a bit heavier though here and there. Bravo, Sami and Olli, very good start. I'm expecting to hear more like this soon!
