Prog Reviewer
4 stars "Keyholder" is KAIPA's 2003 release taking on a slightly harder edge than "Notes From The Past" album with a step even further from The FLOWER KINGS. Having said that though there still remains a heavy YES/FLOWER KINGS tastefulness with cups of KAIPA tossed in on every song. What clearly brings out KAIPA's sound is Hans Lundin's (Hammond organ, synthesizers, mellotron, pianos & vocals), Roine Stolt (guitar), Morgan Ågren - drums, Jonas Reingold - Fretless & Yamaha custom basses. Vocals are shared by Patrik Lundstrom (RITUAL) and the angelic Leena. Both are in top form and sound great together with Leena taking more of a vocal leadership role on "Keyholder"... clearly her beauty compliments his tone. As you would expect Stolt's guitar solos are excellent and compliment the rest of band's peformances. Overall an excellent album with some great songwriting and awesome instrumentation.
