The Review:

The recent reissue of Paatos’ 2002 debut, by InsideOut Music, which was previously only available through various online vendors and in the band’s native Sweden. Some seem to think that Timeloss is more cohesive than their creepy, abrasive and bizarre 2004 release, Kallocain. I personally like both, since they each have a charm of their own.

Paatos are one of the most eclectic bands on InsideOut’s ever growing roster. For those unaware, Paatos is a melancholic post-rock” band with gothic and progressive leanings. The gothic part sometimes reminds me of the band, The Gathering, while the singer’s vocals often bear some resemblance to Björk more than anyone else.

Timeloss is a rather short album by today’s standards but one can expect the five tracks in the 40-minutes to be a satisfactory length. Plus it comes with a enhanced bonus video for "Hypnotique,". Timeloss is a true winner that appeals to both progressive and mainstream music lovers alike.
