5 stars I admit to liking some of the FLOWER KINGS's material but I'm not what you would call an unconditional fan. If you are an unconditional fan, you may find this review way off course. However, "Space Revolver" ranks among my all-time favourites and I feel it deserves more than a nod.

Rarely have I seen so much of the FLOWER KINGS's best elements concentrated onto one single CD: fantastic musicianship, jazzy guitar licks simply to die for, tight drums and percussion, absolutely first-rate vocals (a rarity in prog), catchy, memorable tunes, dazzling vocal harmonies; all in all, utter professionalism right down to the smallest detail. This album is fun through and through and contains absolutely no 'filler' (jamming). The tracks flow into one another so naturally it's hard to stop listening before the end. From the strong opener "I Am the Sun", the laid back "Dream On Dreamer", the hypnotic "Rumble Fish Twist" (my personal favourite), the zany "Monster Within", all the way down to the very last track, this album is 100% pure energy. It's been smoking in my CD player for the past 3 years and I still can't get enough. A whale of an album!

Hibou | 5/5 |
