5 stars Marvelous! I have been always very skeptical about the Flower Kings album and overlook this album for year. Now I tried and feel like kicking myself. Truly piece of Eargasm.

Roine Stolt is no doubt one of the greatest modern prog icons nowadays. This solo album a prove of his geniosity. With just one spin, I got hooked and never let this go for about a week. I'm still listening to it while writing this review. What a charismatic guitar sound on this album! And the vocal melody! And he played all keyboard and bass! Along with Steven WIlson, Neal Morse, Paul Masvidal, Devin Townsend and Daniel Gildenl÷w, he is one of the most influential our modern prog world IMHO.

Taking about this album, this is a guitar oriented, melodic, beautiful and represent the brighter side of symphonic/prog rock interpretation. The interplay of keyboard and guitar is just sound too good. After you listen to it, the sky would be a little less cloudy and the world would be much more beautiful. 15 years has passed and it still sound absolute perfect. Best song writing, music, production and mixing. I cannot seen any weak spot in the album.

You don't want to miss this. Wholeheartedly 5 stars. Truly symphonic masterpiece.
