4 stars I've listened to this latest release about 3 times now. Of course 3 listens aren't enough to give a in-depth comment on this work, but I can surely give some info for people that are still in doubt of buying this. It's quite simple: "Paradox Hotel" is a typical FK album, very much in the vein of "Stardust we are". But even though the sound structures and the instruments they use are very often very traditional-prog, this album certainly has some modern details as well. I'm always sceptic when I buy 2cd- albums, because most of the time you get a mix of great songs and real "fillers". Well, of course I have my personal favs on this cd, but I haven't heard any songs that I dislike or would qualify as "filler". So, all in all, an excellent new release by the Flower Kings. 4 stars should do it! The only thing that keeps me from awarding 5 stars is that more than once I get the feeling 'hey, I've heard that before (on previous albums)".
