4 stars Anothe band formed in mid-90's as a part of the progressive rock revival,THE FLOWER KINGS are led by overproductive Swedish musician Roine Stolt.Actually the story of THE FLOWER KINGS begun in mid-90's,when Stolt gathered some musicians in order to promote his personal (excellent) work ''The flower king''.This touring project received so much enthusiasm and love by the public that Stolt decided to form a normal band under this name.THE FLOWER KINGS released their debut in 1995,called ''Back in the world of adventures''.Not unlike SPOCK'S BEARD,the Swedish band tried to bring the 70's prog sound back in publicity,mixing a variety of vintage influences and styles with the modern technologies' sound.The result is very attractive and the album contains a combination of short and long tracks with echoes from KAIPA (Stolt's first ever band),CAMEL,GENESIS and KING CRIMSON,heavy jazzy doses and some spacey keyboards.Overall,this is fantastic work with strong melodies,nice instrumental passages and great diversity that you simply should add in your collection.Highly recommended!
