4 stars It was not so long that I heard about this "sideproject" of TFK, Karmakanic. I admire The Flower Kings a lot, have all their albums so then it's time for the related ones. I was by no means disappointed by this new band. It has at least a slight edge comparing to TFK and that's because of Goran Edman who is in my opinion a better singer than both Hasse Froberg and Roine Stolt. The music (compositions) can't really cope with the leavel of TFK but that's not a shame because hardly anything does ! And yet, also here Karmakanic doesn't do a bad job. The title track is by far the best song on the album and it's a real classic. A terrific composition with lots of variety and instrumental passages. Other great songs are Is this the end ? and Welcome to Paradise which are highly original songs; the first very emotional and the second handling about some cyberclash, quite funny actually. The other songs are nice too though not as impressive.

A very nice debut by Karmakanic deservedly rewarded with 4 stars (act. 3,5).
