4 stars Im a big fan of the flower kings, and for a long time I thought this one was one of their weakest albums, though I still liked it. But with more and more listens, songs that didnt convinced me now have, and I now rank the CD higherin my list. Last minute on earth is probably their heaviest piece ever, good tempo changes, and majestic vocals,excellent. Serious dreamers has lovely lyrics and good KB solos. Some songs sound a little odd because of their strong 70s influences, but with time you get used to it and get to discover the beauty and craftmanship this band has. Tracks Elaine, and Through the walls are the lamest here(the latter their worst ever in my opinion) and really disrupt the tempo of the album. Take out Through the walls and put in some of the songs in the second CD limited edition, and this one would get five stars for me.
