4 stars In my opinion, Kallocain is a little better than Timeloss, specially cos the best production and a better work in the compositions.

From the new Scandinavian Prog, Paatos is one of my favourites. No matter if sometimes their music sounds like White Willow, Landberk or even Portishead; Paatos sounds is unique and their albums are really beautiful pieces leaded by the amazing voice of Petronella Nettermalm, the simple but brilliant work on guitar by Peter Nylander and the amazing sound of the Mellotron played by Stefan Dimle. In Kallocain, there is a constant sense of darkness and melancholy and the band know perfectly how to keep this tension without unnecessary emotional shocks.

Starting with the gypsy or arabesque intro of Gasoline, the album slowly turns into a nostalgic piece full of slow but dark songs, with solid rhythmical sections, some interesting Mellotron and guitar solos and the pure and amazingly beautiful voice of Petronella. Floatin athmospheres in most of the songs intros complete this picture of nine awsom songs.

Some other highlights: Absinth Minded, Reality, Stream and In Time

Really beautiful album, perfect for fans of darkl stuff and for those which still remember White Willow first three albums or Landberk stuff. 3.8*
