3 stars In 1999 in the small town of Kalajoki,Finland finds birth a new talented Finnish act named Jeavestone by four young musicians: Jim Goldworth (vocals, guitar), Mickey Maniac (guitar, vocals), Tommy Glorioso (bass) and Kingo (drums).With the addition of Angelina Galactique on flutes,keys and voices their sound became richer and the record a self-financed eponymous EP in 2001.Jeavestone toured Finland before the release of their first album ''Mind the soup'' in 2005.

At just 40 minutes,''Mind the soup'' is a good modern Art Rock/Prog album with diversity and energy.With changing heavier and calmer moments and a good dose of breaks in every track,Jeavestone manage to mix different styles such as Heavy Rock,Folk and Classic Prog,influenced by the likes of THE BEATLES, GENTLE GIANT, RUSH and even SPOCK'S BEARD.The majority of the compositions are short but always with rich musicianship,strong amount of dynamics and a vocal orientation.Speaking of vocals,these are quite great and come often in a polyphonic appearance with often a humourous edge.Very much guitar-driven with powerful grooves and short soloing,the tracks are often interrupted by acoustic calmness,complex keyboard parts and flute-driven delicacy to add this afore-mentioned diversity,which makes ''Mind the soup'' an enjoyable listening.The production is also a plus,being bright and clear all the way.

''Mind the soup'' leaves a sweet taste after its listening and it is an album well-played and produced,enough for the listener to keep an eye on the band.Modern prog of good quality and certainly recommended...3.5 stars.
