4 stars This is going to get FOUR STARS, 4.3 rounded down. I have given this four or five spins and the stand out track is number 9 - "Drivers seat" and this track takes this CD past the three stars mark. This is a long tack perhaps just short of EPIC length, but it has some really nice instrumental passages. Roine showcases some of his best guitar work (on this CD apart from the last track) and the start and finale are excellent Symphonic prog. The rest of the CD? Well , The last track is also excellent - an instrumental with excellent nee GENIUS work from Stolte. I also like Adam & Eve with it's solid rock base and excellent guitar solo. A Vampires view has me liking it because it's sort of gothic darkness, this song is preceded by two excellent short tracks - Babylon - I love it - sort of Hackett but I can't help being remined of a bit of an Abba tune (it's amazing what Memes get in your head). The Epic Love Supreme isn't bad and has a really good finale with an amazing guitar solo - but overall its one of the Flokis weakest epics.
