3 stars A different angle...

The DREAM THEATER like title track opens the ball and I get the (angling ?) feeling that I am on a train I have never travelled on before. This mix of male and female vocals are special to say at least. The song even breaks into Swedish folk rock halfway through. This song is great. Another great song is the epic thirteen minutes long The Fleeting Existence Of Time. This song is very symphonic with a great hook and time shifts. The references to GENESIS are pretty obvious here. The rest of the album is good to, but these are the only truly great songs on this album.

Music wise, this album is a blend of fusion, symphonic prog and Swedish folk music. References are DREAM THEATER, GENESIS and THE FLOWER KINGS. The female vocals makes this an unusual album, to say at least. But most of the music is most definate symphonic prog with a strange twist. The disappearance of Roine Stolt from the band has maybe left a vacuum, but I think Kaipa has done a good job without him. I have no idea if this is Kaipa's swansong. I hope not. I happens to like this album and I have withdrawn it from my sales page at Amazon. This is one I want to keep for myself.

3.75 stars.
