Sunrise In Riverland
(No Fashion - 2001)

After the opening instrumental Finlandia I'm wondering, if I have the wrong disc in my player... Didn't the cover said Insania? This sounds like a homage to Stratovarius! Not bad, but to obviously they copy the Finnish band, even if here and there are some elements of Rhapsody, Helloween and Gamma Ray. Beside that singer David Hernriksson has to work on his vocals in the high-pitched vocal parts. The cover artwork is great, but the fans mainly buy the music and not the cover! If they would add more own ideas, then this album could have been more then just average. Next time they should try to be more innovative when they are in the studio. I'm sorry, but I can't give more points for Sunrise In Riverland...
