3 stars A fine album again from the essential Finnish prog. band Wigwam. For some it might have been a lousy return they made with the record Titans Wheel, but that's not the way I see it. And those of us who still consider this band worth listening should absolutely try this one out. Some Several Moons in its whole output is truly a potential classic, even though Wigwam will propably never reach the top charts with over-average-timed songs they perform on this one... The record carries on the american rock style that Jim Pembroke has taken in within years, as in Titans Wheel, but is still admirably loveable with pekka Rechardt's genious guitar solos. A whole step taken back from the pop-influentic Titans Wheel is sadly not enough to bring the band back to the years of Being and perhaps Nuclear Nightclub, but still one to differ them from what the 21th century can do to a band. Fortunately... To a collective listener I would recommend songs suchs as 'Bow Lane', 'Cloudy Dream', and one of mine to-be-classics 'Cacobe Bar Two-Step', With pembroke's great lyrics... And not to forget Jari Kettunen - Mats Huldén duet with drums - bass as if they had always played together. And Esa Kotilainen on keyboards does his job the way only a professional could too, which can be heard from the more psychedelic songs. Lastly, I have no regrets whatsoever being the first to buy this record in the morning! It sure was worth the 19,95 euros it cost me!! Though if you ARE looking for some deep- down-prog.-weird-abstract-something-experience, I doubt you'd want to go for this one ...
