The best Folk Metal album of 2006

Lyrics (9)

Guest review by
Doc Godin

Well here it is, another Korpiklaani album "Tales Of The Forest"...erm...I mean "Tales Along This Road," and let's just say it's nothing new from these guys.

Don't let the above statement fool you; this is a very good album, it just doesn't stray very far from anything they've done before. The great thing about Korpiklaani that first struck my interest is unlike most folk metal bands, the music does not revolve around battle or much folklore but instead is more about drinking and dancing. This album is just as fun-filled as any other Korpiklaani album, and very, very, very cheesey. The album begins with "Happy Little Boozer," a bouncy drinking tune that breaks into a fast charging chant-along type song. The entire album consists of mostly drinking songs that are great fun to sing along with, and just as usual Jonne has that goofy drunkard sounding voice.

  Im really not much a korpiklaani fan, because i think most of their albums are kinda boring. However "tales along this road" is the best in korpiklaanis catalogue.
