3 stars An interesting band/project from Suomi-Finland.

Listed as a heavy prog band, Time Traveller does exactly what the band name says; travel in time. A long journey back in time. Well, in the history of rock, at least. Although some references to Sibelius and Bach is visible, we constrain ourselves to 1965 - 2011.

Their platform is heavy prog, but the music is so much more varied than that. It is taking in bands like Rolling Stones, Agitation Free, Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Free and Rush. I am sure I have missed out on many other bands too. But in short, the music is somewhere between heavy prog, rock'n'roll, blues, space rock, proto prog and krautrock. There are some wonderful use of Hammond organs, electric guitars, bass and drums here. That gives the music a sound taking us back to the 1970s. If someone told me this album was released in 1975, I would had believed them. Gladly !

The sound is great and the band does a superb job. The lack of some great songs are a big loss though and my major gripe with this album. But I have to admit this album is growing on me like hair is growing on my head. I love the eerie Hammond sound on this album. There is no doubts this band has tonnes of both potential and quality. So overall, this is a very good album and it is inbetween between three and four points. I guess I need to get their debut album too after been listening to this album for some days. I enjoy all this time travelling.

3.75 stars
