3 stars In this same site I had read some good opinions about the album, but after listening over and over again I finally convinced myself: this is not one of the greatest albums from THE FLOWER KINGS. I'm a fan of this band, but "Retropolis" it's just a good album. It's far from the first one "Back in the World of Adventures", not mentioning the masterpiece which follows the next year, "Stardust We Are".

The album itself has great moments, like 'There is More to this World", a really amazing song with nothing to envy to other ones. Also the final track is a good moment, finishing the album like they know. 'Rhythm of the Sea' and 'Silent Sorrow' are my last highlights.

Conclusion: If you are enjoying (and even going crazy, like me) with other albums from THE FLOWER KINGS, you have to listening this, but if you are just knowing them, try other albums first.
