4 stars In the Progarchives forum I discovered a topic about TFK in which the best album was asked for. Interesting question because they never made a real bad album and hardly ever a perfect masterpiece. So I had to think about that for a while. But one of the questions asked in the topic was why this album (Adam & Eve) had no votes. Quite some contenders answered that question and so did I. My answer was (like most) that this album contains two masterpiece epics and that's all, at least where the really positive comments are concerned. The other songs are hardly worthwhile, just Timelines and The Blade of Cain are ok. The other tracks are really too poor for TFK standard.

What about the epics ? Well there is hardly anything better to be found in their entire history than these two songs. I said it often in the other TFK reviews, they are so good in the epical department. And they once again prove it with these two. Great symphonic compositions I listened two innumerable times and it never bores.

So that's a huge distinction between the positive and the negative aspects of the album. In no other album they made was it this big. But still I would recommend it to TFK fans because the two epics belong in your collection ! 4 stars because of that but it's actually 3.5.
