4 stars For whatever reason, the second, modern incarnation of Kaipa didn't click for me, although I like most of modern sympho-prog that comes from Sweden. So, I didn't bother checking them beyond their first "modern" album. But for whatever reason I decided to give this album a try. Either Kaipa changed, or I did (got older? :), but I liked it from the very first listening. In fact I still like it very much even after many repeated listenings. I don't know how they did it and what they changed, but each and every element of the band's music is in the right place on this album. Vocals are excellent, especially female parts, melodies and arrangements are inventive, and I especially liked guitar solos: very tasteful. Another good thing is a good production and sound. Well, this is not "a masterpiece of modern prog", and it doesn't make any breakthrough or discover new Americas. But... this is very good piece of modern sympho-prog indeed that really deserve attention.
