3 stars 3.5 stars really

Karmakanic from Sweden make parte from The Flower Kings family , many musicians from TFK were part from Karmaknic including other guests from other bands aswell. The sound is very similar with TFK and The Tangent , but in places I like more then anything TFK rlease over the years. The second offer from 2004 Wheel of live is to me their best album from their overall 4 release so far. With Jonas Reingold as had of the band helped by drumer of TFK Zoltan, the voice Göran Edman from Yngwie Malmsteen fame, with invited guest as Tomas Bodin, Richard Anderson on keyboards from Space Odyssey, Time Requiem, Majestic , Roine Stolt. The music is quite complicated in parts, syphonic prog is what is about, with fine moments as opening track Masterplan, Part 1 or At the speed of light, fine musicianship for sure, some of the instrumental section are really solid, but not all of them and aswell the voice fits perfectly into this kind of music. Even this is quite great symphonic prog very similar with TFK, The Tangent I can't say is very original or groundbreaking, has many fine moments but fail to impress me big time. 3.5 stars to this one, better then over rated Who's the boss in the factory..
