4 stars Wow! Wonderful album! Quite a good surprise. It reminds me of the time I found The Flower Kings. This is no surprise since 3 members of The Flower Kings play here, including their leader Roine Stolt and the omnious Jonas Reingold. Stolt even sings some parts which may reinforce the FK connection, but really the sound is different. The music is great symphonic rock with some strong jazz influences, showing how talented mastermind Andy Tillson is. The sound recording is excellent and the musicians do deliever a tight performance, including some of the best guitar solos Stolt has ever done. I still think their two next CDs are better, but as a starting point, The Music That Died Alone is certainly more than a promise. It is an excellent piece of prog music that is highly recommended!
