3 stars This is a very good prog CD one of the better ones I have heard this year but unfortunately it covers no new ground for the flower kings. I expected by what I had read about it for it to be more "lush" more symphonic and less Jazz orientated and to my tastes this would have been good but unfortunately Flower Kings can't help themselves without the typical throw away Jazzy noodling that to be honest has plagued their entire discography except perhaps their first CD "World of Adventures. Are they repeating themselves ? could have this material been on any of the other CDs they have recorded in the past ? I think so and despite this CD being very good and all it fails to find new ground for this its not worthy of being called great .. very good though just nothing ground breaking.

Don't get me wrong though there are moments of perfection on this CD they are short lasting but they are there.
