3 stars This is a typical TFK release. As usual, the fist track is one of the best. It combines heavy King Crimson-influenced riffs, Hasse Froberg's Anderson-like epic vocals and some jazz- fussion jamming within a non excesive running time. Great. World without a Heart is a typical short slow song by Stolt with a good anthematic chorus. Other favourites are the other Stolt's ballad, Elaine, featuring great fretless bass playing, and Sword of God which is similar in style to Deep Purple. The instrumentals are OK but nothing outstanding, and there are a couple of weaker tracks, not bad at all, but average: City Of Angels and Serious Dreamers. Overall, this is again a good album by the Flower Kings, not one of their best but as good as Retropolis or Stardust We Are, for example.
