From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars I have been listening to progressive rock music for thirty two years, have all of the classics in my collection and this CD and DVD are amongst my favourites. The collection of epic tracks on this CD are simply Fantastic. The musicianship is incredible and the production first class.

Roine Stolt started with Kaipa in the 1970s and has developed his guitar playing in such a fabulous way. He is a very gifted guitarist who incorporates great rock, jazz and progressive playing into the music he composes.

If you like symphonic prog then things dont get much better. If you love guitar then things dont get much better. If you love remarkable drumming then this is for you. If you love keyboards then Tomas Bodin never fails to deliver.

Equally, I never tire of watching the DVD. The camera work is excellent. You are given lots of opportunity to see the virtuoso playing of the Flower Kings. Yes the audience are reserved but that somehow seems appropriate.

I do consider this to be a fantastic piece of progressive rock music and in my opinion thoroughly deserves the rating I have given. Enjoy.
