3 stars Very nice instrumental album by one of Swedenīs top new players of the new millenium. Lalle Larsson has made quite a name playing on several bands like Karmakanic and Agents Of Mercy. So I was a bit curious of how he would do on his own. Well, the good news are that although this is mostly his baby, he is, in fact, backed by a real band. Not surprisingly the bass player is the ever present Jonas Reingold (Midnight Sun, The Flower Kings, The Tangent, among many others). And Larsson does use the best of his musicians for a quite good team work.

I donīt know about his previous CDs, but this is mainly a Jazz-rock/fusion efford, with some symphonic rock tendencies, classical music overtones and even bits of heavy prog a la King Crimson (as on Beyond The Shadows). The results are pretty good. The music in general is quite nice, pleasant and inventive mostly of the time. The production is top notch and the musicians shine all over the record, specially the two guitarrists, both skillful and creative. Larssonīs keyboards are beautiful and fluid. If it was not for the annoying presence of some jazz-rock/fusion cliches, Iīd gladly give this album a four star rating (bear in mind Iīm not a fusion fan). So, to my taste, the rocking A Demonīs Kiss, the languid City Of The Lost Sould and, most of all, the epic title track (with a stunning build up at the end) are the CDīs highlights.

Final rating: 3,5 stars. Better than just good, but not really essential.
