This is his best album yet...  supremely wonderful concept, very tasteful, VERY proggy, amazing vocals, and some of the best melodies I've heard in ages...  includes Jonas and Marcus of the Flower Kings, as well as other assorted non-TFK musicians.  I talked with Tomas about this album, and the followups he's writing as well, and he seems extremely passionate about it, and it's definitely on an entirely different level from the rest of his solo output.  It's extremely focused, there seems to not be a wasted note...

...and there's a beautiful section on the second track (there's three tracks, averaging 20 minutes apiece) that'll make fans of The Truth Will Set You Free smile with ecstacy.

Swedish Family is excellent.  It's instrumental, melodic prog performed on vintage instruments.
