3 stars Their new album is somewhat a bit weaker like its two predecessors although still having some strong parts. First of all the brilliant versatile epic title track and of course Roine's great guitar solos in tracks like "Remains of the day", "The dodger" and "Shadows of time". Anyway he's the one, together with Jonas Reingold on bass and ex-Zappa drummer Morgan Ågren who is saving the album from being completely mediocre. As usually with KAIPA's records instrumental sections are the best ones. Maybe vocal parts on this one are a little bit too much and especially Aleena's very high-pitched childlike voice is for sure not everyone's cup of tea. For me it's just on the border to be tolerated. At some parts, especially in the first few songs vocals are resembling too much a kind of pop jazz or soul. Absolute failures are "Our deepest inner shore" and "Timebomb". Still "Mindrevolutions" is thanks to Roine Stolt a rather good album, but probably not an essential one. For fans of this band it's for sure worth having it, for the title track alone.
