3 stars This is not my favorite album by The Flower Kings, nor is it my favorite. At least it doesn't have any songs or sections that put me off, or bore me, as did parts of Paradox Hotel. Well, the songs are all competent, and, like many albums by The Flower Kings, when the songs get too complacent sounding the mood swiftly changes.

The best song to my ears is Elaine where the excellect bass playing of Jonas Reingold carries the song along. The rest, there are some nice sections in most of the songs, you just sometimes have to wait for them. So don't go out of your way for this one, but if you find it at a good price, it's worth it.

If this review sounds wishy-washy, sorry. This disk sometimes sounds good, but not great, and sometimes just fails to catch my interest.

Evolver | 3/5 |
