Album Review

22-Pistepirkko's Big Lupu might be the most interesting experimental rock album for years. They have remained the simple and minimalistic sound but still it feels so impressive. Big Lupu is 22-Pistepirkko's journey through rock, pop, folk, country, lo-fi, electronica, and anything possible between them. It's a logical follow-up to their two previous albums, The Kings of Hong Kong and Bare Bone Nest. 22-Pistepirkko have just remained the same concept but enlarged their sound at the same time.

Therefore it works for both demanding rock and pop audiences. ~ Antti J. Ravelin, Rovi
