- Insomnia - Sandra Bucher - 6 stars


(MTM Music - 2004)

Does anybody remember Skagarack? Well, this Finnish band remind me a little bit of the Danish. They play hard rock / AOR in the Scandinavian way. All songs are more then decent, but there isn't a real highlight... There is no doubt that the band is talented, otherwise musicians of Altaria, Sonata Arctica and Nightwish wouldn't have joined them on the album. Singer Janne Hurme is a pop star in their homeland Finland. Perhaps it's his voice... There is nothing special and hes more a pop singer then a rocker. They can be roughly compared with their fellow countrymen House Of Mirrors and Urban Tale - I would say...
Btw, if you usually tend to pick albums by their cover or title, this time it ain't work. Hopefully next time they do a better job on that. And a little more identity would be helpful to gain more attention. Sorry guys, but there are a few things you should work on. This isn't a bad album, but far from the top.

6 stars
