4 stars An early but none the less inspired outing from Roine Stolt and crew. This is a fine example of Symphonic prog and would sit well in the collection of any fan of that general style. I came to hear of TFK through Transatlantic (and before that from Spock's Beard) and I can recommend them as at least the equally and generally the better of those comparisons. it did take me a while to get into as it is, at times, delicate and complex music with a fairly jazzy feel (at least for a prog loving meta-head).

i only recently purchased this album and can honestly say that it is of similar style and quality to The Sum of No Evil and Banks of Eden. There are some differences (it is less rocky than BoE but unmistakably the same band.
