5 stars Roine STOLT has made his way to success with his group The FLOWER KINGS over the past few years and folks like me never had the pleasure of listening to Roine play in his pre- FLOWER KINGS days. In the 70's Kaipa released several albums bringing attention to the young guitarist from Sweden. With the release of their sixth album since 1975, "Notes From The Past" reunites Roine STOTLT and Hans Lundin (keyboards). It looks as though they have not missed a step since they parted ways over twenty years ago. This music is yet another testament to the flexibility and talent of STOLT as a lead guitar player. Side projects such as this are nothing new for STOLT; he is also the lead guitar man for the super group TRANSATLANTIC. This outstanding album also features Patrik Lundström (of RITUAL) on lead vocals, Morgan Agren (ZAPPA, MATS & MORGAN) on the drum kit, and Jonas Reingold (The FLOWER KINGS) on bass.

The CD showcases a wonderful cross section of genres intermingled amongst progressive rock, jazz, and jazz-rock fusion. The vocals are equal to the task as Lundstrom, Lundin, and an angelic voiced woman named Aleena share the duties. Great music that leaves you wanting for more with each listen is the most memorable. I found it all to be infectious and powerful just like The FLOWER KINGS' music. Make sure you listen to this more than once before formulating any opinion, there is a lot to take in and process. This CD is highly recommended for anyone that appreciates progressive rock. Old and new fans alike will find this to be an exceptionally pleasing note from the past. Once again Inside Out Music comes out with a quality release right on the cutting edge of prog-rock. This one is a real keeper; make sure you do not pass it up.
