4 stars I don't know why I had avoided this album for so long. Only a few weeks ago I decided to give it a listen, and, oh boy, I realized how much I had missed.

I don't have the skills or patience to write long, flowery reviews, so I'll just be brief and to the point: this is a delightful album for all those who like high quality, well-executed, intelligent music. I have a feeling that virtually anyone, of any musical taste could listen to Banks of Eden without having any of his/her special sensibilities offended.

I don't know if The Flower Kings have attained much linear progress with this album, as the music seems to be quite to the template of what could be described as the mainstay, safe and sound symph. But, good music has a huge advantage that's hard to ignore or deny: it's pleasant to listen to, even thought the listener might realize that he/she is not witnessing a musical revolution, or the birth of a new genre.

To sum up: not quite 5, but 4 stars for sure.
