5 stars The third release from KAIPA and arguably their most complete work. KAIPA has always valued and accentuated a strong instrumental influence in their music and "Solo" does not jeopardize this equation in any way. KAIPA's "Solo" is a colorful and intricate progressive recording which mirrors the brilliance of their earlier releases with perhaps warmer tones. For those who love the FLOWER KINGS, KAIPA is really your Flower Queen! Roine Stolt plays his young little heart out here and adds some absolutely stunning guitar throughout the album. The vocalist (Mats Lofgren) featured on this recording was a new member at the time and does a great job, adding a new dimension to the music of KAIPA. Vocals are in native Swedish and should not wreck anyone's enjoyment of the offering. KAIPA create a very warm and compelling prog sounds, delivered with the very highest of musical competencies. KAIPA's music is very easy to listen to and never gets too sophisticated sounding. Instead we are treated to soaring musical escapes and clever musical interludes. The kind folks at Musea have added a couple of excellent live tracks to fill the digital medium and work very well in with the studio stuff. Many of the tracks have been re-mastered and the sound quality is very high! This is music of the highest caliber and is essential in my opinion.
