3 stars Serious Dreamers to the rescue.

The Rainmaker is extensive and in many parts, bland . Indeed, except Serious Dreamers and a good part of City of Angels, in the rest of the songs are good sections and other uninspired or meaningless. Strangely, it is an album that loses interest with repeated listens and over time, contrary to most of the productions of The Flower Kings.

Last Minute on Earth and Road to Sanctuary (excellent in the quiet sections) could be part of the classic songs of this legendary band with an extensive discography , but do not contain intelligent musical arrangements are very long and uneven, stay halfway. City of Angels generates me best feelings, although not perfect. Serious Dreamers is one of my favorites of the band. The short tracks do not offer too; perhaps the most enjoyable are World Without a Heart and Blessing of a Smile.
