4 stars Roine Stolt and The Flower Kings seem to have an enormous musical treasure where they are bringing out one musical jewel after the other from. Since 1994 they have released a numerous of albums, double albums, live albums, project albums and solo albums. All of them contain equally good compositions and very few bad ones.

Their music is complex high quality progressive rock with lengthy instrumental passages, beautiful harmonies, odd time signatures, gently jazz influences and Roine Stolt's brilliant guitar playing as the extra spice. In my opinion Roine is one of the world's best composers and guitar players in this genre. The keyboard player Tomas Bodin has a very important part in the Flower Kings sound too. Hasse Fröberg and Roine share the vocal duties and both of them have very good voices. The Flower Kings are combining the best from their musical backgrounds and the music that has inspired them through the years. We're talking about bands such as Camel, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Genesis, Gentle Giant and Yes.

As long as The Flower Kings keeps on releasing such brilliant albums, their fan base will keep on growing and they will sell more and more albums. They deserve it!
