It is happening again, here and now. After sailing on the outer regions of the Kuiper belt, and interacting with several extraterrestrial species who could impart new wisdom to them, Oranssi Pazuzu have arrived back on Terra, eager to apply this fresh knowledge to their music. What did the words of those ice giants from beyond Neptune contribute to their new sound? What about the teachings of the Tsuthians, the 9 foot tall gas ghosts who speak only in hisses? Listen carefully, ye carbon-based life forms, and Värähtelijä shall unveil the answers.

Mind-blowing trip, indeed!

As for the album itself, it's a little too long for my liking. I would personally cut the last track, which doesn't bring up anything interesting to the table, and close it at around 58 minutes. 7.5/10, so far.

Yeah, that last track isn't all that special... Oranssi Pazuzu have had a habit of closing out their albums with more atmospheric tracks, but it would've been interesting to end this one with that 6th track, and then end it on a heavier note. It's still not all that bad though, this one is sitting in solid 8 - 9 territory for me

Life was a commercial for itself, endlessly replayed.
Nothing changed, it just spread out farther and farther in the form of neon ooze.

This album just keeps getting better and better for me the more times I play it. This band does a really great job with their albums of maintaining a common theme, but somehow making each track have its own distinct identity as well. Each track here manages to have its own thing going on while also having the Oranssi Pazuzu sound stamped all over it.

AOTY for me at the moment.

Man that long song is one of their best for sure.

EDIT: came here to say exactly the same thing again...

Interesting style of BM and it's cool in certain parts, but the whole thing didn't really do much for me and I don't think it will hold my attention in the long run.

Seeing a huge part of this being performed live was amazing. Roadburn's gonna kick ass.

Man, I really gotta say, the only downside of this album is... the artwork. Really quite awful in comparison to the three brilliant pieces that came before it for the debut, Kosmonument, and Valonielu

I really like the first two tracks, track 5, and track 7. The rest of it is decent... I may have to listen to it a few more times before I really know how I feel, but overall I like this album a lot.
EDIT: after more listens, I like the other tracks as well, and think they work well with the rest of them as a whole album. Definitely love this album.
