Verta, Pornoa & Propagandaa started a new era in Don Huonot's music. With this album, the band finally achieved fame with the public, and this is revealed by the group taking longer steps and attempting something new. The old hippie-like attitude -- which was reflected in Ahola's songwriting for Don Huonot's first album -- is mainly forgotten, and the band seems to have grown up. Everything isn't completely positive with Verta, Pornoa & Propagandaa, however; the change in approach isn't complete and the group sometimes appears to be merely experimenting with other rock styles. But these shortcomings don't ruin the album, which is a good beginning for Don Huonot as Ahola and company change into a band that can be taken seriously.
