5 stars Perhaps there are many albums to play much more important role in the history of prog, perhaps Kallocain is one of these albums that no one will remember after 30 years... Perhaps - but it steel deserves 5 stars.

After hearing the first PAATOS album, I was a bit afraid that they'll never manage to record such a thing again. But they did it - Kallocain is even better then they debut Cd.

It's starts a bit weird - with strong folk influence cello - but just a few seconds after we have no doubts that it's still Paatos. This time very hipnotic and melancholic, but at the same time a little bit more "dynamic" then Timeloss (excluding the last song).

Quite good lyrics (of course perfectly sung by Petronella + good mastering that make you feel, as if she was whispering it straight into your ears) - loneliness, lack of contact with the closest people, lack of understanding.... The title may be seen as quite ironic as Kallocain was a kind of truth serum (see: Karin Boye - Kallocain)

Feelings, emotions, melancholy, typical nordic atmosphere of small, closed room - that what Paatos has to offer this time - in the best quality. IT IS A MASTERPIECE!!

Remember: "The way I see the situation is my reality"

PS. No more Anekdoten quotation, please! If not this - Kallocain would deserve even six stars:-)
