"The Second Best"

Behid that curious (silly? funny?) name, hides a fine Finnish musician, Mikko Murangen. This talented man from Helsinki wrote all tracks, played all the instruments and privately produced the record. He even created the cover art. What about the music? Pure instrumental prog close to Genesis (the keyboards especially). In between, there are spoken words with a deep religious mood. Despite rather cheap (!) production, the whole lot is interesting. I enjoyed the last track particularly, 'Dream Another'. Finally, this is the best Finnish low budget record money can buy today.
