2 stars Whatever happened to Lise (HIBOU) who contributed many Biographies (this band included) with extreme precision and a lexical knowledge of artists and their material?

Thanks to my Finnish friends I had the first two albums on LP for decades. Both of them are excellent and are treasured possessions.

"Demon Nights" was released much, much later and is very different, practically bears no semblance to their earlier works. The band here falls into the common trap of trying to imitate WEATHER REPORT, a band that I am rather fond of. Many leading artists have attempted to do the same and those imitations were generally rather poor efforts. Efforts that didn't enhance the artists' profile, but resulted in rather the opposite. "Demon Nights" did just that for FINNFOREST, resulting in one of the most forgettable WR imitations. This work is rather pointless and should never have been made public. You have been warned!

Still, I would wholeheartedly recommend their first two albums which have been released on one CD, sporting one of the finest presentations I know of.
