4 stars This is my third Flower Kings album. I deeply enjoyed the first two (Adam and Eve & Back in the World of Adventures), so I was really pumped about this one. And it didn't let me down. Here is a short rundown of the songs:

1. I Am The Sun (part one). Good opener but not a great one in my taste. 3 stars

2. Dream on Dreamer. Super atmospheric. Good one. 3.5 stars

3. Rumble fish twist. Superb. Very easy to listen to. 4.5 stars

4. Monster Within. Good epic but weird. 3.5 stars

5. Chicken Farmer song. Stupid name but a super positive song. I really enjoyed it. 5 stars

6. Underdog. Amazing. 5 stars

7. You don't know what you've got. Yes I know, i've got a bad song. 1 star.

8. Slave to money. Nothing amazing, but good. 3.5 stars

9. A king's prayer. Here we go. So far, my favourite song by The Flower Kings. Everything about this one is simply amazing. The lyrics are excellent, the singing inspiring and Stolt's guitar solo at the end is epic. Do yourself a favor and listen to this one. 10 stars...

10. I Am The Sun (part two). Superb song to finish this album. 5 stars.

So, overall, this one is another great album but not one I would listen from beginning to end without skipping a song now and then. But A king's prayer alone makes this album worthwhile.
