Disappointing
orpington | Nebraska | 07/02/2001
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This disc is limited to 5,000 copies and is autographed by both Tom and Jorma (in the picture above you can see Tom's gold signature in the lower left and Jorma's silver 'JK' in the lower right). This is not so much 10 versions of Embryonic Journey but rather 10 takes of Tom and Jorma trying to learn to play it as a duet. To be fair, it actually sounds very good. The acoustic guitar and acoustic piano sound clean and warm.But then to cap it off, the 11th take is a midi version! Aaurgh! What were they thinking?! Midi's ALWAYS sound terrible. So an otherwise okay album closes with a piece of trash.Then there's the time issue. The whole disc is just over 32 minutes, and at least 5 minutes of that is Tom and Jorma yakking -- and not saying anything remarkable. Like this: Tom says, "Here's an idea. Let's try it another way," and Jorma replies, "Okay." Big deal, not much insight there.So when you start with a 32 minute disc, strike the 5 minute midi piece, and strike the 5 minutes of talking, you end up paying full price for 22+ minutes of somewhat repetitive music. I like Jorma alot, but if I lost this disc I would not replace it."
