Prog Reviewer
5 stars Archetype of modern symphonic rock

After a long period without reviewing albums and even longer period without giving 5 stars rating, I return with a review about this brilliant symphonic album by swedish veterans from Kaipa. And it's not accidentally, but naturally! In my opinion, the best album of 2010 so far! It's what I dream of all the time when I pronounce the words symphonic rock. Exceptionally balanced album without weak (or even just good) moments. It's full of surprises and emotional parts as well as great guitar solos, saturated sound, and original development of the ideas. Probably the most important moment of the album are the complicated and reasonable structure of the musical themes and their combination with the vocal parts. The combination of male and female vocals is just divine. Impressive performance and quality of the vocals, which's not typical for most of progressive rock music. All the instruments perform remarkably. There're no weak components all around the album. As a general conclusion I would say - perfect combination of songwriting and musicianship. All these superlatives raise In the Wake of Evolution to the heights of modern progressive rock culture!
