Finnish muso Antell has been around for a while with a large number of albums to his name - as well as some great art and a software company! 'Box Americana' (released in 2000) marked his move from straight electro dance to a more rock orientated sound and is full of interesting twists and turns. This album keeps interest going right to the last track. The guitar sounds are sometimes reminiscent of the Gillan Band and he uses atmospheric sound samples to set the scene for some songs or give an Art Of Noise feel here and there. Covering topics from where has the Gospel gone in American life through to how TV and films have captured a generation, the songs ask loads of questions and start pointing to God for the answers without ever trying to ram the theology down your throat. A well produced album with a nice touch of quirky humour.
