3 stars Well it's a mix of progressive music from Canterbury, a bit of a "RIO" genre and some experimental tunes as well,without a precise direction...Roine Stolte, already with the Swedish band "Flower Kings", plays with his usual fusion/experimental touch, even though I should have appreciated a different style, closer for example to Frank Zappa. I don't get crazy for the vocals of Roine and Andy Tillison too, but the output is anyway good.I can't stand listening to Roine Stolte after 5 minutes (the same defect you can discover sometimes within the production of Flower Kings or inside some tunes by Kaipa!), because sometimes He's a bit "chilly" during his guitar excursions, as long as He becomes quite boring..but never mind, his style is unique and often interesting during his performance;and this latter makes you forgive all the defects I have remarked to you above!!

Make your own choice!!
