Overview

Despite the campy name, Finntastic is a surprisingly good and interesting compilation of Finnish music.

Most of the tracks are orchestral compositions, but several represent the pop and folk music coming out of the country. Anyone looking to explore the music coming from Finland would benefit from giving this compilation a listen; it may not cover everything but its a good place to start.
