5 stars The best flower kings album yet. From the first song on disc 1 to blue planet, the closing song of the album, this album is great. They continue to show their versatility and ingenuity with this album. Highlights Disc 1: Monsters and Men - Continues to get better each listen. Great opening epic, sets the mood and theme for the album. Jealousy - A somber but beautiful piano piece here. Self consuming fire- An awesome song in all respects. Roine's solos are breathtaking. Arguably the best short song of their catalog.

Disc 2: Basically everything. What if god is alone and Minor giant steps are my two favorites on the second disc. Every song is a highlight except unorthodox dancing lessons and the way the waters are moving, but they're both good songs.

Dissapointments: Only Bavarian skies.

The greatest album among a collection of great works deserves a 5.
