"It Don't Add Up" features the lines "God‚?¶ said don't stop ‚??til you've sacked the lot and their communist plot". Singer/Guitarist Ville Leppanen sounds frighteningly like Sammy Hagar. He and bass weilding brother Mat play like stadium rockers who think punk may be their meal ticket (though all too often just play bad stadium rock, especially on "Neverfade", a terrible amalgamation of Extreme, latter day Aerosmith and Van Halen). On the inlay there's a photo of the band, drummer Benjy Reid keeping to the back as the brothers Leppanen try to get in the viewers face. There's a feeling he doesn't want to be either seen or just plain doesn't want to be there. "Animal Farm" is eleven tracks of reasons for this.

This band are SOOOOOOO bad...please dont think this is the best the UK has to offer......they payed Victory to put this out right????
I know they pay onto tours over here.

I leave you with a quote from their website.....on how the UK differs from their old home of Helsinki......'At home there are no Pakis, but then the curries are shite so I guess it kind of balances out.'
Racists and god awful to boot.
Sweet.

This album sucks. Victory has lost their fuckin' minds.

Well, it isn't long because this release doesn't deserve anything longer. The reviewer was able to shit on this CD in a paragraph, and god bless him.

i thought this review was about the movie, snowdogs. i am glad it isnt.

CallingLondon (April 2, 2002)

what's with all the paragraph-long reviews? This review really doesn't say much except the guitars sound big.
