Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is the culmination of everything The Flower Kings have been doing since their inception. Starting and ending with two of the bands finest epics, or, dare I say, the two best epics they've ever made: "The Truth Will Set You Free," and "Devil's Playground." One thing this band has and always will be criticized for is having filler material, especially on their double disc outputs. While this is certainly true for Stardust We Are, Flower Power and eventually Paradox Hotel, I can honestly say that this one has none. Every single song is at least on par with what they're capable of. No silly, simple, or embrassing pop songs on this one. This is their most experimental and jam-packed release. Zoltan's arrival must be what made everything click. You may need to give it a few listens, and you may not get to listen to it often due to it's length, but each listen will be extremely gratifying and worthwhile.
