Staff review by

Seriously, what is it in the climate, the food or the landscape that makes people from northern territories so unhappy? Is it the snow, the dark forests, the reindeers that make them grow despair as if it were a new kind of very nutritive aliment? Sorry about these uninteresting existential questions, but when I hear the first album of the Finnish Swallow The Sun, I'm really glad I live in England, where the morning sometimes comes .

I remember the first thing I did when I received this album was stare at the cover art for a while, is just awesome! The abandoned cabin in the middle of the woods, and the dark scene only lighted by a dim light coming out from the second floor of the house… creepy isn't it?
As for the music, is as creepy as the cover art, when I listen this I get the feeling that these guys recorded this Cd in that old cabin in the middle of a forgotten forest, and the light coming out is actually the rehearsal room of the band…

"Out of this gloomy light" is the only thing I ever liked from this band.

Really? This album captivated me from the first track.

Rating: 8 Wow. This is great. I thought this band was plastic crap since I read some comments about it. But it is not

Rating: 6 First listen sounded ok to me but I was not really into it after a few listens...probably similiar album such as Officium Triste's "Giving Yourself Away" appealed to my taste.
