Amorphis is one of my favourite bands, particularly due to the guitar work. I find few musical concepts less interesting than a guitarist's solo album with an array of guest vocalists. So what happens when the guitarist of Amorphis releases a solo album with an array of guest vocalists?

I am sceptic, even some tunes are OK, even cold Nordic melancholy and emotions into music, its not as I expected , I hope non of those guys will join in Amorphis as singer.

I am a huge fan of Esa. I have studied his work in each of his projects for years now and thus I was very hyped for "Silver Lake". I am also a fan of most of the singers participated : Jonas, Tomi ofc and Bjorn. Everyone else is also sympathetic to me. Although the final result is not something I really enjoyed. Yes there are trademark Esa riffs, yes there are warm tunes and yes the vocals are great. Although, I missed a single memorable riff, rhythm, part, song, something. It was bland and always there is something that draw my attention when he writes music. All in all what I listened was a collection of modern alternative tunes that in my opinion does not represent Esa as a musician, at least for the part of Esa I adored.

If I had to distinguish some highlights I would say " In Her Solitude" a modern style Amorphis song, "Promising Sun" where I was amazed of how suitable Bjorn's voice can be in a style like this and maybe "Storm" because it captures the essense of the album. Too bad I did not like the songs with Jonas, who was my favorite...

Guitar is what matters and its exactly turns out to be the one expected from Esa.. Melodic and sometimes heavy. Only problem is the different vocals on same album.

Lots of diversity from track to track, yet it somehow manages to mesh together. I find myself enjoying this quite a bit :-)
