3 stars This one is strange, really strange. If you want to like this album, you have to be more open minded to this complex music. It is crossed with jazz and maybe there'S to much of it, not that i have something against it, just listen to "Bolero - the peacock's tale".

Don't get me wrong however, the album still have its moments. "Cirkus" is a dark and intriguing song and the best on the album. As many of you knows, Jon Anderson from YES contributed to the album by singing "Prince Rupert awakes". This part completly stole the show as Jon's voice and the way he's singing was made for this song. Although it is not their best track in their career, "Lady of the dancing waters" is quite a charming ballad. "Indoor games" and "Happy family" are to avoid.

Only to die-hard Kiong Crimson fans.
