Sinine - Butterflies
Electronics, Folk The first time I heard about Sinine I was a bit skeptic, but I still wanted to check it out and I'm so very pleased that I did. The more I heard, the more I got interested and my expectations really where maxed for this released. I was a bit frighten that when it finally came it would not live up to it... but I'm so happy to say that it sure delivered all the way.

It's a bit hard to describe the world of Sinine. If you like Deine Lakaien and Diary of Dreams, you have some treats to find. It's not that it is a rip-off of any kind, you just have that feeling to it. You got your inlays of pop, rock, electronica and folk and at first you would think that it would create just a big mess, but it works out perfectly and even though some of the songs differs in speed and aggressiveness, you have an atmospheric red line throughout the album.

The first song is an instrumental song called "Inglid" and the first time I've heard it I actually listen to it over and over again five times before I continued with the rest of the songs. I'm not a great fan of instrumental openings to albums, but this really sets the mood and the violin is just wonderful. The album also ends with an instrumental track called "Hello" and I have to admit I'm not really keen on that one, but in between you have six amazing songs.

You can really tell that this is a personal album for Mauno. It don't matter if it's a fast paced song or a slow ballad, there's always a seance of complete sincerity in all of the tracks and besides that he also have a great voice that makes the sensation even better.

The only down part with this album is actually that it's so short with it's eight tracks. I would love to have peaked into the life of Mauno for a bit longer. Finally, I have to urge you not to miss this release, it's really absolutely great.
