Jungle the only number that is related to prog and If we find the time a nice ballad. I haven't found anything else good on this record. Sorry, but only two stars. Disappointment for me, too. The third track "Waves" reminds more of Can rhythmically but with a nice symphonic keyboard embellishments and a beautiful guitar solo gives it the right amount of oomph.
Reminds a bit of Deep Purple. Maybe "Highway Star" type riffing. Vocals kind of weak but overall saved by an unexpected harmonica solo. One of my favorite tracks. Another excellent track. The variation and Kurkinen's excellent guitar playing keep this album from ever drifting into mediocrity and although the band are master's of the cut, copy and paste approach to create a nice mix of ideas, they clearly hadn't quite sewn all the influences together to create a unique and totally original sound.
Still an impressive early collection of heavy rockers mixed with nice mellower tracks. This album is available on CD despite there being no info that it exists i found one by chance but it is probably easiest to obtain as a two-fer-one with the second album "Boogie Jungle.
The title track is the longest one in the whole set It starts with lonely acoustic guitar, but already after 30 seconds the vocalist and the band arrive to offer a tight piece of progressive hard rock. Electric guitar is leading the way. Gritty harmonica solo is played by Saksala. The opener 'Mind the Fly Hunter' is rooty, bluesy rock'n'roll song, quite uninteresting to me. The second track is even more boring.
It has become very clear by now that this album is much worse than the debut, at least for a prog listener. Friends of honest rock'n'roll naturally think the other way round. The album's best track is obviously the long, closing instrumental 'Jungle', where especially electric guitar and Moog do some nice things.
The leaflet features credits information, nothing more. Maybe together these albums are worth three stars as I would rate the debut separately too. Their second release issued 3 years later named Boogie jungle from is a diffrent affair, musicaly speaking.
The band broke up after releasing their debut, but soon re formed in with new musicians, including a new voice, important is that the guitarist Matti Kurkinen remaning still, he was the driving force of the band for sure , sadly passed away in a traffic accident soon after releasing Boogie jungle in So, this album is far less spectacular then the first, being close to comercial hard rock , the progressive arrangements almost completly gone with exception the excellent ending 7 min plus piece named Jungle where Kurkinen shine all through, sounding like it was taken from their debut.
The rest while to me is far from bad album, is far less exciting but pleasent for sure. Boogie jungle desearve 3 stars for sure from me, nice art work.
