3 stars So beautiful, so full of promises and so full of details.......... but still a failure; The Flower Kings has spawned a Jessica Simpson.

The music is the normal The Flower Kings staple diet here. Without any killer tracks this time, that is. The front is beautiful with the art-work, the smorgasboard full of details and a very good sound. But when I have listened to it ten times; I still not get it. There is very little there which I remember. Just some good licks and a lot of good melodies....... fragmented all over the place. I believe this is a concept album about the Biblical persons Adam & Eve. The music is more symphonic than on most other The Flower Kings albums. But it still does not kicks like the debut album does. Simply; where are the great melodies ? They are not here. Being a The Flower Kings album; this is an artistic failure. But it is still not a bad album. I still enjoy it now and then. But a classic, it ain't.
