5 stars I stayed hesitating by a long time before to write a review about "Back In The World Of Adventures" from T F Kings and in certain form today I see that my hesitation was reasonable, because only after 12 years of career the band release another album who got a rate above 4 stars ( The Banks Of Eden ). In fact I think this first work from Ronnie Stolt and co. is close to perfection and was one of disks responsible to awake my interest about new bands of prog-rock (specialy after the 80's a almost total "lost decade". Across the 10 tracks of "Back in..." you can find countless moments of virtuosity, but this virtuosity comes with a strong dose of inspiration and creativity, without forget the precious lessons from the master of Progressive Rock like YES, GENESIS, CAMEL etc... . When I hear for the first time the album I could feel a delicious "mildew smell" due this "tribute" to old prog. The best tracks are track 1 "World Of Adventure" , track 3 "Go West Judas" , track 8 "My Cosmic Lover" ( with a clearly oriental ascendency) and track 6 " Theme For A Hero " one of most beautiful melodies in the story of prog rock. Although I must detach, which all tracks are great. My rate is 5 stars !!!
