AllMusic Review by

Kyyria's previous full-length album, Alien, was a slight disappointment, even thought it was successful in artistic opinion. Kyyria didn't made into the large audience as they hoped, so it was time to change recording company. And when listening to Inner Wellness, they sure did change their tendency as well. Inner Wellness is, at first look, quite straightforward. The distorted guitar riffs and awesome keyboard lines roam so hard that they sure had an expensive producer. But it isn't a problem. Their guitar wall is wide enough, even on one guitar. Also, the vocalist Ville Tuomi uses his voice all-round, so his expression sure satisfied everyone. And when looking at the guitar and vocal work of Kyyria, it seems that Inner Wellness resembles Faith No More's hard rock bit very much. Kyyria doesn't take it to so diversite level as Faith No More used to do, but their expression satisfies the most of hard rock's audience. As said, Inner Wellness is straightforward, but that sure fits to poppy songs such as "Jesus Döner" or "Evelyn." Unfortunately, that isn't enough. Those straightforward songs won't last for long, and magnum opuses like "Gift" and "Strecher" fail on all areas but boredom. Therefore Inner Wellness remains just a quick snack for fans of, let's say, Faith No More.
