The closest thing to a safe Flower Kings album for sure, I do really like this album but it is way more (I know I'm using this word a lot) safe than any other Flower Kings album. The vocals are very good, the production is great, but the songs are much shorter, there are no real complex instrumental passages, and there are no epics. Even the other safe album by the band (The Rainmaker) has an epic (Road To Sanctuary). There are a few songs that sound like some of their older material, such as "We Were Always Here" which reminds me of material off Stardust We Are, and "Sleep With The Enemy" sounds like a piece off "Desolation Rose". There are some songs that are quite unique, that I actually find are some of my favourites in their catalogue. Songs like "Spirals", "We Were Always Here", and "The Bridge" are their more unique, yet amazing, some of my favourite songs by the band. Anyways, this album is really good but it's not as experimental as any of their other albums, and it's much more safe. Still strong but just not up to par with some of their best material.
