4 stars I really think how must be difficult classify some albums in a appropriate category. But, in the case of KALEVALA "People no Names" this difficult was very large ! This album mix several styles of prog/ hard/ heavy/ jazz/ blues/ space, Although , this styles are in certain way diluted in the main themes of their tracks. In Track 1 "People No Names" starts with some JETHRO TULL influence in moments like "Benefit" (1970) , but in the middle of song emerges something like a "latin Jazz" in Santana "vein". The track 3 " Waves" is a psychedelic tune. The track 4 "In The Net" shows a interaction between hard and psych prog and seems like an CREAM / MOUNTAIN "meeting". The track 6 "Lady With The Veil" presents a vigorous and continuous rhythm the and the absolute detach is wah-wah guitar solo with some breath percussive intermissions. The track 7 "Escape From The Storm" is a funk/jazzy theme with a hard-rock middle section !

I don't make mention for other tracks because they "runs out" in relation of most tracks from the album ! But I believe which this album deserves at least one audition !!! But, this above mentioned tracks make me concede to this álbum, 4 stars !!!
