Album Review
Reviewed 2004-03-15
Finland’s best surf band! Surf guitar, plenty of keyboard riffs, many different styles. I like Laika! Some of the style combinations are somewhat bizarre, but that’s a good thing. The tunes are mostly simple and pleasant. All instrumental!
* marks favorites (but they’re all good).
1.Maybe the closest thing to a real surf tune on this album. Mid tempo.*
2.Sweet melody, mid tempo.
3.Funky sound. Mid tempo.
4.Mid tempo, nice melody. Great background
5.Soft and sweet. Ends with phone sound.
6.A little more rocky, Who-style surf.*
7.Another “loud” track, mid tempo, sweet melodic keyboard riff. *
8.More elaborate hard-rock style guitar solo. Mid/high tempo. *
9.Mid/slow tempo, simple classic tune.
10.Garage-like tension, some soft Jazz moments, all wrapped in pop-surf.
11.A little like an old Russian tune, slow/mid tempo. *
12.Loud, upbeat, rock&roll! *
