3 stars Here is a promising Finnish progrock band that has delivered a wonderful, very tasteful progrock album.

1 - Inside the temple : The intro features an ominous climate and a scary voice, then a mellow atmosphere with whispering vocals and bluesy electric guitar.

THIEF: THE STORY

2 - (a) Inside : This piece delivers several shifting moods, from slow to swinging with organ waves, sensitive electric guitar and some fiery saxophone.

3 - (b) Exile : The climate on this track is dark and atmospheric, the fragile electric guitarplay has a bit Mid-Eastern undertone and I hear a kind of bagpipe sound, a very original sound.

4 - (c) Outside : The variety goes on, this is a tasteful and elaborated mid-tempo song featuring warm vocals, bluesy slide-guitar, beautiful piano chords and mellow organ waves. It reminds me of the mid-Dire Straits era when they were blending pop and symphonic.

5 - Dying of light : This one delivers dreamy vocals (evoking Dire Straits) and relaxed guitar play.

6 including CRK-HNV 3.36 : A folky climate with a bagpipe sound.

GIANT STEPS

7 - (a) Consider it done : A wonderful track with twanging electric guitar and a slow rhythm with soaring keyboards and sensitive electric guitar work.

8 - (b) Suspicion : Here Project sounds more dynamic in a mid-tempo song with lush organ and a break delivering a swinging organ solo and propulsive, R&R inspired guitar play.

9 - Severance is futile : This composition contains a dreamy atmosphere featuring compelling guitarwork and moving soli on trumpet and organ.

A SONG FOR THE DESSERT - A SONG FOR THE FALLEN

10 - (a) Requiem of a lonely man : Dreamy climate, melancholical vocals (evoking Frank Borneman from Eloy) and nice work on the saxophone and electric gutiar.

11 - (b) Momentum : This short piece delivers a swinging clavinet, just another fine surprise from this unique Finnish band!

12 - (c) The irrational reports a spectacular loss of apparatus for the ill of substance : An ominous climate and scary voices, then a psychedelic atmosphere featuring strong interplay between organ and drums that reminds me of the epic Pink Floyd composition "Echoes", very compelling and hypnotizing with the use of some sound fragments.

13 - (d) Mementum : This is a reprise from song # 11.

SUNRIDERS

14 - (a) Winds from the past : An ambient track with flute and soaring keyboards, halfway the sound becomes more lush.

15 - (b) The reckoning : This composition features many changing climates and a very tasteful colouring by the guitar and keyboards along melancholical vocals and saxophone.

16 - (c) Heroic expressions, a turttel : The final song starts with soaring keyboards and a wonderful blend of piano and electric guitar. Then a mid-tempo with pleasant work on the electric guitar and saxophone. In the end a tight beat with organ and fine vocals.

THIS IS A VERY ORIGINAL AND TASTEFUL PROGROCK ALBUM THAT DESERVES MORE ATTENTION!

And I would like to dedicate this review to Jari Litmanen, the legendary Finnish soccer player who won the Champions League and the World Cup for teams with Ajax in 1995, thanks Jari!
