Album Review

Ultra Bra's Vapaaherran Elämää and especially Kroketti were both mega-hits in Finland. And with reason, because Ultra Bra is the most interesting cross-over in years. While previous two albums' songs were basically concentrated to rock, Kalifornia is a more pop-oriented album. That isn't a bad thing at all, especially when Kalifornia contains even more songs that have hit potential. It is just that the structure of the songs is a bit different — the sound of Kalifornia is massive, strings are largely used, and songs don't have much variety. This is why Kalifornia doesn't last as long as Kroketti did. But after all, Kalifornia is a great album. Every chorus and bridge of Kalifornia is a definite highlight of this album, not to mention the beautiful strings of "Tyttöjen Välisestä Ystävyydestä" and massive sound wall of "Sokeana Hetkenä." It is just that the great success of Kroketti has driven composer/pianist Kerkko Koskinen to write catchier songs, which have attitude to be singles. If you don't keep this in mind, it is easy to consider Kalifornia even better than Kroketti. ~ Antti J. Ravelin, Rovi
