Hmm, a bit short for your first post!
I  have "Wheel of Life" and it's an excellent album, I'm looking forward to getting the new one. Perhaps you could expand on your reasons a bit?

Here  is the way  I hear it :Track 1 - Send A Message From The Heart
This 20 min symphonic prog masterpiece is my favorite Karmakanic tune .A perfect blend of composition , musicianship , and production . Everything I crave in music. Layers of sound that carry me away.acoustic moments that sprout into full blown jams.

Track 2 -Let In Hollywood
5 min prog rock tune ,7/8 time. This tune makes me get up and move. I love the tones of all the instruments.The mix is perfect

Track 3 Who's The Boss In The Factory
13 min , When I got to this tune , I  began to realize that this record is special. It's a complete work , not a collection of tunes . I began to hope this was one of those rare records that have to be listened to from beginning to end . The piano is one of the first things that sticks out to me in this tune .

Track 4 - Two Blocks From The Edge
10 min , Another symphonic prog wonder , heart felt guitar and vocals , big organ sounds ,as allways the bass tone is perfectlly fitting [I especially like the frettless section] ,Tenor sax is also very tasty.

Track 5 - Eternally Part 1
2 min ,Wow, excellent piano piece

Track 6 - Eternally part 2
6 min , A fitting conclusion to a heartfelt adventure . this record has taken me somewhere .  Karmakanic delivered !

Most of all , what stands out to me about this record is the talent of the musicians , and how they complement each other. What a picture they paint together. I'm in Symphonic prog heaven !

A great album but I wont go as far as saying it's album of the year...might just scrape into my top 10.

This album has certainly raised my attention to the band. It is an excellent album indeed! 

Thank you The Dividing Line Radio shows for introducing me to this band!
