4 stars This Finnish band is not full-blown prog but makes pop/rock music with some complexity and undisputed originality, and therefor they really deserve to be here as Prog Related. This was my first whole album by this band, and it seems I should listen to them some more too. Such charming bizarre pop! Sad to see this one has no written reviews yet. (The ratings vary between five stars and one stars!)

It's not an easy task to describe the music. It has some stint of avant garde, for example odd rhythmic structures, but it also remains quite painless to get into. The central element is the vocals (which are relatively close to normal speaking), and very interesting odd lyrics of Tommi Liimatta. In fact, the lyrics seem to form some sort of hazy narrational unity here. Some track titles translated: What Will Happen? When Will The Influence of These Stop? What's Wrong With Us? Shall I Swallow The Evidence? The Lost Berry-Picker. Has There Been Noise from Our Flat? Mr. Liimatta has published also poetry, prose and comics. A real Renaissance man, comparable to his countryman Mika Rättö (Circle, Kuusumun Profeetta, etc).

I believe this album suits fine to start listening to this band, as it did for me. I'm afraid for non- speakers of Finnish this band has not that much to offer.
