What comeback. Wow, what a comeback!

Kaipa was absent from the progressive music scene for twenty years, but they are back with a new formation, which left only Roine Stolt and Hans Ludin of the original members. What we have here is a band with a sound very different from before, but trust me: this is very good!

You will immediately associate the songs on Notes From the Past with The Flower Kings, Roine Stolt that the band created in 1995 and has been a major exoentes modern progressive rock. Yes, the resemblance is undeniable at certain points - but considering that influenced Kaipa TFK, I think this is the answer to the question. And in fact the album is more than mere similarities. It has a fresh sound, intelligent and dynamic - everything a prog fan could ask for.

The album is very instrumental, as is evident in the epics. My favorites are the title track (especially part II, where the bass player Jonas Reingold - this from The Flower Kings - plays a great fretless bass) and Morganism, with various elements of jazz-fusion and trumpets section! Although they are clearly the best, the album is generally very, very good!

Strong 4 stars. Bring on more!
