3 stars Kaamos from Turku, Finland is a forgotten band in prog circles, but quite better then many of their country fellows. They had a metheoric career , released one album in 1977 named Deeds and talks, disbanded in 1980 and then diseppered in the oblivion. The album is good , sounds most of the time like a cross between Jethro Tull (but without the flute) , Gentle Giant and even Fleetwood Mac but aswell with some funky elements here and there not far from Stevie Wonder. To this all arrangements I can trace some folk and even some blues in their repertoir. As a whole the album is very enjoyble, specialy the voice of Johnny Gustafsson and the keyboards of Kyösti Laihi are the cherry on the cake here. Very up tempo in places, and quite intristing to combine all those elements from diffrent bands of that period, but pieces like When Shall We Know or Are you turning with that funky/blues atmosphere bu melted with progressive overtones is a total pleasure to listen, Suite -case the longest piece from here is the most progressive one, that doesn't mean the rest are not, but this time they combine the symphonic prog to that special finish style of the '70's, great track in the end. So a good album, nothing close to a masterpiece but pleasent and as I said quite better then many finish albums of the '70's. Nor really recommended but worth investigated for sure if you like as I am , the '70's progressive rock movement, and specialy the one from Finland. 3-3.5 , good but non realy essential.
