This second print includes a bonus song. Kaikkeuden kauneus ja käsittämättömyys ("The Beauty and Inconceivability of Everythingness") is the third solo album by Sami Sänpäkkilä, released in 2004. Features members of Kemialliset Ystavat and Avarus. As the artist describes, "There are many sources of sound that can be interpreted as music concrete: pulsars and noise culled from my SETI-at-home processes, hammering in the apartment downstairs, C-vitamins wheeze and scissors cutting my hair. I also used many conventional instruments on this album. One of the most important was a piano which is heard on most of the songs. I do not have a piano, so I had to go to my friend's to record all the piano parts." Guest collaboration on this album includes Ville Leinonen, who wrote lyrics to the title track and who sings. The songs on this album explore the same themes heard on the previous two Es records; melancholy, pathos and hope. The overall mood is darker, gloomier and more ominous. The album is self-reflective -- it is about trying to create a better place to live in instead of explicitly judging or criticizing the world. This album is dedicated to the sad, the depressed, the insomniacs, the strayed, the fearful and the lonely.
