”A tasteful album, full of surprises, refreshing arrangements and unexpected moments. A definite touch of ”the Scandinavian”. Well-played by top musicians from the new generation!” – Jasper van’t Hof
”Even at its strongest, the music doesn’t assault the listener, but instead invites the listener into its arms. Second Spring begins, flows and ends beautifully, like a quietly babbling brook. ” – Mika Terho / Etelä-Saimaa
