3 stars 3.5 for sure

Tomas Bodin needs practicaly no introduction, he is one of the most well known and respected keybordists in last 15 years and more. Everybody knowns that he is an important pawn in The Flower Kings musical machine, but also has a solo career. He is helped here by his mates from Flower Kings, Cs÷rsz and Reingold , so I can say he keeps it in the family. The album has all kind of ingredients from symphonic prog with jazzy hints, eclectic moments, but on every piece Bodin his keybords sound great, vintage with some great moments and quite complex arrangements.Also the bass work and drum chops are excellent on some tracks like on What┤s Going On?, 13 min of shiney moments and maybe the best piece of the album. So, not much to add, this Pinup guru released, I forgot to say it, in 2002, his second offer is among his best solo works and has plenty of great moments who will please a wide area of fans, from symph prog lovers to jazz fusion ones.
