5 stars Previous Tomas Bodin albums, to me, have been very good. More so Pin Up Guru than Sonic Boulevard. They, however, didn't compare to The Flower Kings material Tomas is normally associated with. They had the same musical vibe, but the overall products I found were still a few meteres apart. That is, of course, till now. His fourth Solo Album, "I AM", is here. A 63 minute album spanning over, wait, three tracks, "I", "A" and "M". Not something you see every day. However, I cannot help but think this album is pure bliss. Rather dramatic in places, but still. Thats all part of the concept of I AM.If you listen, you can really here the pain of the person in question, doing this 9-5 job and completely forgetting who he/she is. Neither can I also help relate myself to certain parts of the album, but musically it is genius. Tomas hadn't really used vocals for his past solo albums, and I have to say with this album he has done a fantastic job. I wasn't sure at first, but the more times I listened to the album, the more I got used to them. Maybe thats because I was I find myself getting deeper and deeper into the music. Not for a long time has an album given me so much to think about, so much pleasure and that warm, spine-shivering feeeling you get when you know an album means so much to you. In a nutshell? You must buy this album, its absolutely essential. I am not saying that just because I can relate to it totally, but I honestly beleive if you like well written, beautifully put together prog rock masterpieces you can not go wrong with this one.
