4 stars Oh, my first TFK album (and also one of the first ones that got me more than 2 years ago into Prog, it's getting more and more distant as months go by), since my TFK rush when I listened almost everything by them and loved instantly most of it, I didn't listen them so much (only occasionally here and there). So let's give them fair deal now.

The main thing that differ "The Sum of No Evil" is its big percentage of epics. Theoretically, about 80%, practically, 100%. Because even there are two short songs, even these are epical. I heard somewhere that TFK are dubbed "Epic band" and it's probably true. So, this is a good thing, as complain I've heard most on their music is that there are great adventurous, pompous tracks combined with weak fillers. There are no such fillers, so just big pieces (well and two short pieces with a heart of gold ... or was it hooker with a heart of gold?). Musically, it's typical TFK. Melodic, sometimes going across the borders to Heavy (Hard Rock in appearance, but Prog in sound).

5(+), because this is what I feel as good, new (even vintage a little, and really just a little, bit) Prog. Sadly, it's their last release as of 2010 and I (and most of fans) are frantically waiting for new release).
