4 stars Flower kings at the early stage...wonderful music..played with professionalism and joy... some reviewers complain that this music are derivative...well of course it is....maybe thats why the album is called "Retropolis". Anyhow i think this wonderful work are quite supreme ...Stolt have never said anything but...their music was a homage to early prog. And as such they certainly deliver the goods!! So his singing are comparable to John Wetton´s ..whats wrong with that...Wettons a supreme singer!! The music on this fabulous album are strictly composed and very well executed...all members of FK are great musicians. Listen to track 4 " Theres more to this world" for an examble of their brilliance..and its really a sign of what´s to come this is but one of this bands fantastic line of great albums!!They get better and better..and that my friend say´s a LOT !!! So my friends..ignore the "sour stomach" reviewers..listen to this album with an open mind ..and i promise´ll be greatly rewarded...that is if you´re into progmusic.... "like they dont make em anymore"......the reviewer who noted that this kind of music... was a part of the prog circus...well..then he might have a problem..explaining to those several thousand progfreaks who cherish / love and BUY the Flower kings albums!! THIS IS A GREAT ALBUM !!! For those of you who doesnt like it...well go buy something else.....and the way....if this is circus music...ill gladly put on my red nose!! Better that, than sour stomach!! Real proggers GO FOR IT !!!
