Album of the Month: Pietarin spektaakkeli – Rakkauteen
March 18, 2014 § Leave a comment
I have a confession to make. I kind of filed Pietarin spektaakkeli into the kuuntelematta paskaa -category. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Thankfully Aki had this playing at 8raita record store while I was there and it was an instant love affair. There was not a chance I was going to leave that store without the record in my bag. A few hours later I filed Rakkauteen by Pietarin spektaakkeli into the best thing ever category.
Rakkauteen is a magnificent album and I can’t seem to get tired of it at all. And I’ve tried real hard by listening to it for hours and hours. The video song Tyttö lähtee tanssimaan is my least favourite and maybe that’s why I had some doubts about the overall quality of the album. Nothing really wrong with that either and everything else sounds perfect to me. Easy going blues, 70s/80s Suomi-rock, hip hop. A refreshing combination. I’m not good at describing it, but I’m loving it wholeheartedly. I usually stay far away from the hyped albums, because I hardly ever like them that much. But this thing is so worth all the hype and more. I can already guarantee that this will be on my top 10 Finnish albums of the year 2014 list and even though many of my favourite bands will release an album this year, I wouldn’t be surprised if this takes the first place. I don’t really write proper reviews anymore, but I still have to add those hearts below, because Rakkauteen is so worth all those five hearts.
