Prog Reviewer
2 stars Roine Stolt's The Flower King was, of course, the project that brought together the Flower Kings, and it's kind of the blueprint for every subsequent Flower Kings project - particularly when it comes to sappy, preachy lyrics, retro-prog repetitiousness, compositions outstaying their welcome, and a limited range of tricks and gimmicks milked to exhaustion.

In other words, if you find that the Flower Kings are not usually to your tastes, there's nothing here to prompt you to change your mind - and if you are a Flower Kings fan, you're likely to find this album a bit bland, since the various compositional additions and twists thrown in by the other members of the group don't really come to the fore this time due to its origins as a solo album.

Warthur | 2/5 |
