Prog Reviewer
3 stars I'm puzzled about this album. The reason is whether this is prog or not. Somehow it's a strange mix of pop, country and prog. And country music from Finland ? Hmmm, that's a surprise. Well, ok, it's not downright country style but somehow it comes close with tracks like High Tide and I'm in a Train. The pop comes with songs like Nobody never knows nothing and No-Show (beautiful ballad by the way). The prog aspect is mainly to be found in the longest song called Flutter, by far the best track of the album.

If they had done all their songs in the style and quality of Flutter I would have considered a four star rating but the rest will hardly appeal to most progfans. At best to those who like crossover and prog related just as much as the real prog. As it is I can't award this release with four stars and will have to settle for three. But at least it's a bit better (3,25). A typical case of good but non- essential.

PS Special mentions for the violin, always nice and interesting to hear this instrument and the sax on Maria (Kalle Fält) which resembles TFK's Ulf Wallander (guest on Unfold the Future) big time !
