4 stars A very well balanced and professionally carried out album with a lot of taste. Michael Stolt, with a surprisingly close voice to Roine Stolt, takes the role of a lead vocal.

The album is stylisticall closed to "Sonic Boulevard" but it's more mature and memorable. After first listening, you will have a better feeling and impression than after "Sonic Boulevard", even though you will feel the same amount of Flower Kings aura coming out of it.

"Private skies" has a certain ELO/Beatles flair to it, no wonder since Tomas Bodin is a fan of ELO. Later comes a nice complex organ/drum dominated section, very symphonic and progressive. "American standards" is very close to Flower Kings but mellow,calm and vocally oriented.

"Silicon bimbo run" is a 21-minute epic that goes for a bit too long but consists of distinctive sections, first one keyboard dominated, then acoutic guitar, vocal harmonies/solo with a slow memorable guitar solo, before getting into a slow/Transatlantic area and translating into a symphonic multi-layered end.
