2 stars Another boring release by Musea... Not a good start for a review but nontheless the second In Spe album is full of qualities. It's just so badly produced. It's not about the way it is recorded, but more about the choice of sound. Mattiisen has the talent of a contemporary composer, the skill and the ideas. We will say never enough how much wrong electronic facilities can spoil down any kind of music. One advise : Alo should find the time to write down the score for a large classic ensemble or a cello quartet and then go and record with them. His music would - at last - have the recognition it deserves. The really moody "Departure" escapes from this critic, as it stands well on its two legs. A very melancholic ans hypnotic feel on this one, very haunting. As presented here, In Spe has enough hooks to please any Finnegan's Wake fans. Thus, less than a hundred people.
