4 stars As most of you know The FLOWER KINGS have always held a very special place in my heart with most if not all thier albums reaching gold status in my mind and on my CD player. Certainly after seeing them live 2 nights on their 2001 USA tour has made this strong musical attraction all that much clearer... these guys kick! "Rainmaker" is the recent release for Roine and the lads taking us back into their tight knit symphonic prog layer. "Rainmaker" is another superb installment with no signs of weakening in any way. This full length CD contains 3 huge epic tracks (over 10 mins) and contains some of the most beautiful and emotional music I have heard in a while. This album houses a few more sound effects than other albums and Hasse Froberg has taken on a greater degree of the singing. Dominating this album is of course Roine's wonderful inspiration guitar playing and the brilliant master keyboard strokes of Tomas Bodin. Overall "Rainmaker" is a huge listen and is highly recommended by this FLOWER KING fan.
