4 stars Quote from : The second album, Kallocain, is recorded and subsequently mixed by Steven Wilson. This collaboration began with Paatos playing a few gigs with Porcupine Tree when they were on tour in Sweden. The prospect of Steven mixing Kallocain was fantastic as was Steven's magic to be heard in the final result. I think Steven Wilson of PORCUPINE TREE did an excellent job in mixing this album. The result is a very warm album, nevertheless the true PAATOS's sound is still very present and distinct.

All tracks of this album are good, to very good. However I must admit it took me some time to get used to "Gasoline", the opening track of this album. Highlights of "Kallocain" are "Holding On", "Happiness" and "Won't be Coming Back".

The special edition containing a bonus DVD is also nice, however I must say Petronella's voice sounds better on the album than life. Nevertheless a nice DVD to watch which captures the mood of their life performance.

Just like "TIMELOSS" I rate "KALLOCAIN" as a 4 star album. I actually think that "KALLOCAIN" is a bit better than their debut album from 2002.
