4 stars This is a very good debut for the FK. The are very good vocal melodies, sung by Roine Stolt in a very Wetton-like style. It also features the stunning and inspired guitar work from Roine at its best. The rest of the bands specially the keyboards make a good envelope for these songs. I find the first half of the album excellent (songs 1 to 4), specially the first track, World Of Adventure, which is one of my favourite tunes by TFK, with Yes-style music and Wetton-King Crimson-style vocals. A good mix! The album falls a little on the second half, with a pair of instrumental tracks (5,9) which don't bother me but they are not specially great, and then we have My Cosmic Lover which is a more rythmic song (you can even dance to it) and Big Puzzle which IMO is a little overlong and not as great as the first tracks of the album. Overall this is a very good album with some really excellent tracks, but not a masterpiece as a whole.
