I agree with the UT comments there are far better Finnish albums than this. Overall I find the moves pretty generic and not particularly memorable compared to the best in the genre. Some of the slower tracks are just plain dull and the last track on this short album is a waste of time. Couldn't ever see myself reaching for this in preference to a Tasavallan Presidentti or Pekka Pohjola album.

There are some great prog rock albums from Finland on the Love Records label. But, despite what you may read in some places, this isn't one of them. Not that it's bad. It's just not really prog. Ferris are more your basic hard rock band, the type that really wanted to get noticed in the UK or USA, but didn't. If you think Free, Spooky Tooth, Andromeda, and other acts in that vein, add a little touch of Man, some country and even a bit of catchy pop. They get the Anglo-American sound off to a tee, as they say. You'd never guess they were Finnish. If you're after something more prog, then try to find a sample of "Basically Pure" which is the album's most inventive track. For the other end of the spectrum try "Mr. America" which sounds like The Eagles to me!
