4 stars This time, Jonas Reingold added plenty of musicians to help him make this album, a concept about the evolution of the universe. We are in the usual style of symphonic prog rock that doesn't shy away from the Jazz and the heavy prog which gives to the music both vintage and modern sound. It starts really in a big fashion with the epic "God The Universe and...." 24 minutes of pure symphonic prog going into different moods with crunchy guitars, delicate piano and that Jonas tasty fretless bass. The vocals are beautiful with a lot of vocalists contributing. "Higher ground" starts innocently but take a rather heavy twist in the middle to end peacefully with those vocals harmonies. "Steer By the Stars" is the most standard rock song of the album, nothing groundbreaking, a little breather nothing more. "Travelling Minds" starts with some piano and bass, a smooth intro that gets a little more intense for a short time in the Yes accessible style. The second part of God The Universe and..." brings back the more heavy stuff of the beginning of the album with that Flower Kings influence nothing surprising here. Not a perfect album, but enough good music to satisfy the Karmakanik fans. 4 stars
