5 stars The pinnacle of Kingston Wall's career and what a shame it is that Petri Walli chose to end his life shortly after. The band was truly ahead of it's time, I don't think there were many bands in Finland that played this kind of music or atleast on this level back in the early 90's. Whether it has anything to do with Walli's upcoming suicide, there are suttle dark and brooding vibes noticeable throughout the album. Some say this was Walli's farewell note. Nonetheless the record still has that light and spiritual feel as well. The lyrics (the album actually has 3 sets of lyrics) consist of spiritual and philosophical messages and the album has got plenty of references to the Bock Saga (which the record is somewhat based on). This is truly a record that goes to your soul and through your whole body. Very mystical, very awesome.

Kingston Wall remains an enigma. Their whole story is full of questions and riddles and the only man who might have known what it was all about took the answers with him to the grave. This whole album is a mystery. A great mystery and a great album. I don't know if it's essential as far as progressive rock goes but it definitely wouldn't do anyone any harm to listen to this one thoroughly. There is something powerful here and you can't just point it out. Maybe it's Petri Walli's hope for a better world. Who knows.

Jimsey | 5/5 |
