4 stars Maybe I've already gotten to the point where the Flower Kings can't do anything wrong anymore. This album is the fifth I bought and like all the others it's grown on me. Especially the first song, Last Minute On Earth, simply won't leave my head (not that I mind). The instrumentals are strong and the vocals are `alive' (with that I mean: not mixed and refined death). I don't mind an occasional note that's a bit off, certainly not if it's Roine Stolt's. One of the aspects FK-music is the positive (almost fairy tale-like) atmosfere. That is absolutely strong on this album. Still pondering which is my favorite FK album. Maybe not this one, but it ends high on my list. If you like music by the Flower Kings, you will certainly like this album.
