3 stars I haven't had much luck when it comes to KARMAKANIC. I couldn't really get into their first two albums and had no intention of checking this one out until seeing all these rave reviews one after another. Well like the three collaborators before me I too have to give this 3 stars. This is their most impressive release by far in my opinion but there's too many moments that I either dislike or could do without to give it 4 stars. Lots of guests on this one including Andy Tillison, Roine Solt, Tomas Bodin,Theo Travis and more. The best part of this album is the former FLOWER KINGS rhythm section of Reingold and Csorsz.

The first track is the best on the album bar none. No complaints for this almost 20 minute opener. It's one of those rides that always seems too short. "Let In Hollywood" is catchy but i'm not enjoying it at all until it gets heavier 2 minutes in. It settles back again.

"Who's The Boss In The Factory" is a good track except for chorus which is very annoying for me because of the FLOYD reference which is all over it. "Two Blocks From The Edge" is good with the guitar crying out early. I like the bass after 5 minutes and the guitar, organ and sax that follows. "Eternally Part I" is a short piano themed piece. "Eternally Part II" is melancholic with piano and violin leading early. Not a fan of this one.

A good album with a killer opening track.
