4 stars I recently listened to this album for the first time for years, having subsequently followed the career of the Flower Kings. I had forgotten how good it is! We can hear TFK in embryo in most of the tracks, and in the mix of epic tracks with vocals and shorter instrumentals. The sound is a bit less polished than TFK, but it does not necessarily suffer for that. The opener, 'The Flower King is for me the highlight, with a memorable moment in the middle where the tempo speeds up and leads into an exhilirating guitar solo. There are meny beautiful peaceful moments in the instrumental tracks also. An excellent prog record in its own right, but of particular historical interest to TFK fans.
