4 stars Close to Divine but a little uneven and too long.

Classics unmistakable as Stardust We Are (one of the best of his career), Compassion, Church Of The Heart and In The Eyes Of The World are found in this double album released 16 years ago. Like several of the works of these Swedish musicians, the album is strenuous and loses interest in some sections.

Moreover, the lyrics may sound irritating or foolish if not understood in the Christian spiritual framework, such as the first track. And while the overall tone is positive, also conveys anguish and hardships faced by the protagonist in the first person.

Don Of The Universe, The Man Who Walked With Kings are two good instrumentals, and Circus Brimstone too, but should finish four minutes earlier. The Merrygoround has a good dynamic, intelligent variations and great instrumentation. Ghost Of The Red Cloud, with its reggae tinge is another good topic.

sinslice | 4/5 |
