3 stars This is your standard TFK album. You have two long epics, the best of them is Love Supreme, built around a simple but catchy chorus, with a return of classic 70's prog jamming, instead of the jazz-rock jamming predominant in the previous release. The other one, Drivers Seat features similar characteristics but I find some of the instrumental passages a little boring. Probably both tracks would be better if they had condensed then in 10 minutes each. There are also two pleasant short melodic songs, Cosmic Circus and Starlight Man, and a hard-rockin' one Adam & Eve, which sounds good but is directionless and not very inspired in my opinion. The highlight for me is undoubtly "A Vampire's View", with that histrionic and theatrical vocals and interesting music exploring new ideas never heard befor in a TFK album. That's it, a good average album, not outstanding but not disappointing at all.
