5 stars What can we expect from members of Flower Kings? Some Flower Kings kind of music. Not quiet, while there's symphonic music here that remind us of the legendary band in the song "Electro Shock Therapy", the music is all instrumental and very different a part from the sound of keyboards and the bass of Reingold. The music is showing a large range of moods and atmosphere. On most of the songs the heavy keyboards create a dark atmosphere that is tempered with that typical, not to say addictive jazz bass sound of Reingold, which gives a nice balance to the music. The drums and the keyboards are very busy with many twists in the songs that succeed to maintain the melody and reach a high emotional level. There's some unusual sound and effects in the song "Caressing the Moment in tranquilized ecstasy". The keyboards are screaming in the song "Too much Therapy". There is some melancholic intro with the piano and a few new age passages with the keyboards. In the final song "The Last One", the bass of Reingold remind us of the jazz sound of Weather Report. So, let's say that all of their songs demonstrate some strong songwriting value, it's just not your cold instrumental music, it's warm with a touch of a breeze coming from the bass. While Reingold is credited to use guitar here, this is bass/drums and keyboards music and the drums are also displaying some creative patterns. What is amazing about this album is that every listening experience his bringing some new things. This is not background music, listen with full attention and enjoy!
