4 stars What's with all the Patrik Lundstr÷m hating? So the guy sounds a bit like Freddie Mercury. That's not a bad thing. At times on this album, I find he sounds a bit like Jon Anderson, and sometimes like James Labrie. Having a strong clear voice is a good thing. And I like him on these Kaipa albums.

The music on this album seems to me to have a strong Yes influence, in both the vocal harmonies and the song structure. Much of the album sounds like Drama period Yes. again, that's a very good thing. Once again, Roine Stolt and Hans Lundin, with their rhythm section of Jonas Reingold and Morgan ┼gren have created a fine piece of symphonic prog.

Does it sound like The Flower Kings? Sure. But that's a good thing, too.

Evolver | 4/5 |
