4 stars First of all, I'm not a huge fan of The Flower Kings type of music. I usually like more metal in my prog. This is the only album from that band that I owned. I bought it after hearing a couple of songs from it and thought this would be interesting and different. And it is!

This album is a treat. It is very nicely crafted. All songs are different form one to another and they are all very good. A lot of different musician contributed to his album, but the overall result is still very coherent and enjoyable. The more I listened, the more the music worked its magic with me and I ended up playing this CD quite often in between heavier, darker albums. It does sound so refreshing!

A Message From The Heart is a very enjoyable epic song right at the beginning of the album. Although I sometime found it a little bit too cliché, it grew on me with time. It gets even better after that. Let In Hollywood has a very good rhythm and is the heaviest song of the CD. Who's The Boss In The Factory? has something that reminds me of Pink Floyd with the backing vocals. The sax adds a nice touch to the already catchy Two Blocks From The Edge. The accordion is nice touch in the very melancholic Eternally.

Overall this CD is a very varied album, with no fillers. This album comes very close to being a masterpiece. A very strong 4 stars, highly recommended.
