5 stars This is an excellent album, but it's a little difficult to enjoy it. I mean, I don't recommend it to beginners in progressive rock. But if you have some experience listening prog, definitely this is an excellent addition. It starts with 'In the Eyes of the World', with a beginning that remembers 'Tarkus' from ELP. It continues with an amazing set, the body of the first disc, with great choruses and acoustic guitars, until 'Circus Brimstone'. Here, it's easy to find the sound of KING CRIMSON. The second disk is all centered in 'Stardust We Are' song, since its beginning. Though in the first disc there are some callings to 'Stardust We Are', this one it's full of motifs, since the first track 'Pipes of Peace', that finally gives life to the last song, and maybe, the best song of the album. Also it's possible to find a connection in 'Stardust We Are' with 'In the Eyes of the World', in some particular parts with the same sound, closing the circle. The whole album is a pleasure to hear it, and the last half an hour is the best way to finish. This third album is where FLOWER KINGS found the essential way of its sound.
