The other persons reviewing this album are clearly Finnish and long-time fans of Wigwam. That they be disappointed with this album is understandable but to consider it inferior to the following album Dark Album is pushing it a little.

On this one , what strikes most is that the music is looking up to Steely Dan . The highlights Colssus and Eddie are brilliant but yes, the rest lacks inspiration, but not more so than Dark Album. To choose between these two albums, the proghead would be well advised to stay with this one - he will find more to chew on. This album celebrates the return of a KB player (there was one as an occasional guest on the previous album) and this proves to save the day. Overall , I would say that IMO this under-rated album is roughly equal to the over-rated Nuclear Nightclub. Another thing that links those two albums is the artwork of the sleeve by original bassist Hulden.

Hope this album comes out one day with the two tracks Mr. Hannu speaks about in his review (Tran Driver & Wardance). This might even make it better.
