1. Suljettu - Absoluuttinen Nollapiste
"Closed". A progressive pop/rock concept album about a father being accused of sexually molesting his son. Ingenious lyrics ranging from hilarious to heartbreaking.

Key track: "Suvannossa ylpeä ilme"

2. Yövieraat - YUP
"Night Guests". After years, I think this has become my favorite album by the "Young Urban Perverts". Brilliant pop/rock with fantastic arrangements. The lyrics are some of Martikainen's best: "Meidän on annettu pudota" for one is a beautiful depiction of life and death - the best possible way to end this album.

Key track: "Meidän on annettu pudota"

3. Muovi antaa periksi - Absoluuttinen Nollapiste
"Plastic Yields". An odd alternative/progressive/pop/whatever rock album by the eccentric young folks from the Northern Finland city of Rovaniemi. Imaginative songwriting and weirdly atmospheric lyrics.

Key track: "Sivulla jatkuu"

4. Huoltoasemalle unohdettu mies - Kakka-Hätä 77
"A Man Forgotten at the Gas Station". Punk rock about living in a shit-hole and having nothing else to do than speed.

Key track: "Tornionmäki-Vaasankatu All Night Long"

5. Being - Wigwam
A Finnish prog classic from 1974. Brilliant compositions and interesting lyrical concept (yes, here's another concept album). Superb playing too.

Key track: "Proletarian"

6. Toppatakkeja Ja Toledon Terästä - YUP
"Quilted Jackets and Steel From Toledo". Another concept album! The songwriting is typical for early YUP: creative, all-over-the-place, progressive punk rock. The lyrics are as bonkers, telling a blackly comic story of a detective investigating a factory producing mattresses and jackets with human hair as filling.

Key track: "Toppatakkeja ja Toledon terästä"

7. Paha maa - Kauko Röyhkä & Narttu
"An Evil Country". A tight EP by the "Lou Reed of Finland". Like a weird bastard child of Reed, Tom Waits and Nick Cave.

Key track: "Paha maa"
