4 stars Kaipa´s Notes From The Past is one of the best prog CDs I bought in the new millenium. It has a refreshing quality that reminds me a lot of the Flower King´s Retropolis and Back In The World Of Adventure. Of course the band is different, - even if includes TFK´s Roine Stolt and the ever present Jonas Reingold - but the quality is as high. Hans Lundin is an exceptinal songwriter and player, knowing quite well how to mix technique with sensitiveness. Songs like Mirros Of yesterday, Folke´s Final Decision and A Road In My Mind all have that kind of simple inspiration that is missing from the Flower Kings later work. All musicians are in fine form and definitly the vocals are very well done. The more you hear, the more you like and find something extra, as on any great progressive album.

A nice surprise, highly addictive music. If you´re into symphonic prog music, specially the swedish style of prog, you must hear this CD. 4,5 stars.
