This was the first KAIPA-album I listened to at all some two years ago or so and before I knew any album of THE FLOWER KINGS. I actually never heard their name before I bought it, but I listened a few samples and they convinced me completely that it's a great album. And after I received it, it just blew me away how stunningly good the music is. Somehow I just felt transferred 30 years backwards into past ---- well NOTES FROM THE PAST that's its title------of course it's fully RETRO, you can't call it PROGRESSIVE anymore nowadays, but I don't care what it is, it's just GREAT music. Anyway the whole argueing and discussing about what is Prog or not, I really give a damn sh... on it, what is important is that the music is not boring for oneself even after repeated listenings. And moreover I believe that if rock music really would have been going on progressing the last 30 years, that there would almost be anything left enjoyable at least for folks like me, maybe some strange sci-fi computer sounds. Actually I can't write anything else about the music on this album, it's just great music as coming right directly from the 70's with the difference that the recording quality is top-notch and on the level of 21st century. If you're into that old stuff, you should have this piece in your shelf! Released a few decades earlier it could clearly be considered as a masterpiece in progressive rock, still I'd would give it 4 1/2 stars!!
