For quite a lot of fans of this Finnish Power / Speed Metal band this new album "Unia" must be a total surprise. "Unia" is Finnish and means something like "dream". And this name says it all, because the new material is overall pretty dreamy. If you knew Sonata Arctica especially because of their fast catchy hymns, this CD surprises with midtempo songs. And the material is much more complex, this is why the listener might need much longer to gain access to the songs. Ear candy like "Victoria´s Secret" or "Misplaced" is unfortunately rare ("It won´t Fade"). Unia is indeed a good album, but it cannot inspire like Reckoning Night or Silence.
