AllMusic Review by

A shimmering collection of original and traditional Finnish songs played unison-style by five fiddlers, a bassist, and blend-into-the-woodwork harmonium player Timo Alakotila, who shows more of his stuff on Maria Kalaniemi's disc. Not as hot as the rest of Green Linnet's Finnish neo-folk catalog, but surprises like the odd tango and waltz plus a pleasingly dark tenor help heft this over the top.
