3 stars Honestly, I hate to be the one to say it but I find this album to be kind of boring. A few really great tracks and a bunch of filler. For the amount of times I have listened to this album I find nothing on this album to be top tier Flower Kings material, except one song, "We Were Always Here" which has a clear throwback to albums like Stardust We Are and give us that nostalgia. Unfortunately, the singles released for this album were the best tracks (besides one other) on the album "Black Flag", "Miracles For America", and "Wicked Old Symphony". I do enjoy "Sleep with the Enemy" because it provides a nice and refreshing side of Hasse Fröberg's voice we don't often get to hear. Unfortunately, the longest song on the album "Vertigo" is vocally fantastic but musically not something I'm too happy with.

I would love to go track by track on this album to give my final score, but I honestly don't have the motivation to provide one on this album. I still think this album is good, but many many many times far from a top tier Flower Kings record.

I will give a track by track analysis, but edited in later. For now, I say between 2.5 and 3 out of 5 stars. Best I can really do.

ComaEcliptic | 3/5 |
