3 stars Magical album with some real personality and fantastic musicianship featuring guests, Jode Leigh (Ex-ENGLAND) on the drums, PAR LINDH on the keyboards (Mellotron, Hammond, church organ.) and Roine Stolt on the acoustic and electric guitars. Songs featured on this album date back to 1984 when both Ingemar Hjertqvist and Per Sundbom they originally crafted these tunes which have now been re-recorded with this new band. Lead vocals are handled by lead singer Ingemar Hjertqvist who sings effortlessly in English with great conviction and control. "Fool's Journey" is a wild contrast of styles and influences ranging from dark symphonic moments to lighter and almost animated melodies. Try to almost imagine a cross of the TALKING HEADS and The FLOWER KINGS and your starting to get the idea. Along the way we are treated to some great lead guitar solos and massive keyboard passages with great bass and drum interplay. This album was recorded in PAR LINDH's Crimsonic Studio and offers great sound reproduction with solid speaker distinction. Warning this is highly clever music and once you hear this record you likely will need to buy it! Now you have been warned!
