5 stars My Last review - on their debut CD - This is another fine trip through the styles of yesteryear. From the title track - World of Adventures - the usual excellent mellotron, organ and impish guitar runs that swoop in and out, lots of time changes also - A bit of salmacis chucked in to annoy certain reviewers, mind you we are 10 minutes in so maybe not eh? Loads of interest and interesting melodies make this a peach of a track A+++ The instrumentals, Atomic prince and Kalaidescope have a delightful syth motif, some good bass riffs and some nice hackettesque guitar work Ace track A+++ GO WEST JUDAS - Has a bit of STOLTE GUITAR GENIUS - another winner A++ No 4 - A Train to Nowhere is a darkly themed ballad that I like despite it's content and shortness A. Then Oblivion Road - a bit of a filler instrumental B++ The next instrumental - Theme for a HERO is a much better composition - Starts a bit like the Enid and has some lovely guitar and synthesizer motifs also an ACE guitar solo A+++ Temple of the snakes - short synth based track A++ My Cosmic Lover - Very catchy bass line and the closest TFK ever come to a pop song - I lke this track though A++ The the CD goes up a gear - The Wonder Wheel - Excellent emotion laden guitar work and gorgeous use of the mellotron A+++ Then the Finale - BIG PUZZLE - I love this track More Hackettesque guitar picking up on the nice synth riffs with a cinema show rythym Some good use of Piano - Great instrumental passage A+++++

It's got to go into your collection - get it bought FIVE STARS
