5 stars Another excellent output by this talented Swedish band. The first composition is an excellent moody instrumental workout led by keyboards. The band is not ashamed to display the vast array of influences ranging from the 70's (Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Genesis, Kansas) to more modern bands such as Opeth. "Destined Solitaire" has even short growling vocals imitating Mikael Akerfeldt. It is really an eclectic 11-minute dynamic composition. The Opeth influence is broadened by acoustic guitars and whispered vocals a la Morningrise from 1996. The epic "Until you comply..." has cleverly composed parts with references to Frank Zappa. " Coup De Grāce (or How I Was Killed By An Accordion - Motown Style)" is another creative song dominated by accordion and hammond with semi French style and then proceeding to slow heavy rhythm. There are many clever moments that you simply have to listen to the entire album and enjoy every second of it.
