4 stars "Kings of time" sounds more mature and more sophisticated, but at the same time more aggressive and Dynamical, the songs are more interrelated and the album feels more like an entity. The music has moments of Peace and Serenity Inserted with the powerful and aggressive ones because of this the overall feeling turns always in two directions that make you perceive the dynamical changes.

The tracks have no name and it's kind of boring but I don't really care about this. In the previous album the violin doesn't sound too much just in some moments but here they use this instrument with more Intelligence and Capacity. The pieces last longer and they use more ambient passages to give the song a more intricate feeling. There are some vocals (like in the first piece) but only in few tracks, the whole album it's again instrumental. Some people says that its boring because they don't sing but I think they express better the feelings they have when they record this. The guitarist "Harri Sippola" is truly inspired and also Sandra Mahlamäki is in her best condition The keyboards sounds more like a grand piano but in some passages they make strange sounds that enrich the music.

They made a 10 minute song and I think it's the best because it have all the things I mentioned before and sometimes sounds a little bit jazzy but Unexpectedly they start to whistle like in a old west movie (maybe because they love morricone's music) really amazing; this piece in particular sounds very Powerful and Inspiring. To slow down the emotions the next track it's more soft and nostalgic really beautiful piece. Other beautiful song it's the fourth track with an excellent violin Interpretation and some guitar effects that connects to the next track and make it like if where only one piece, really amazing.

Magyar posse really have developed a new sound here they keep searching for new things like in the first album and they probably reach their peak in the next album (I hope). The post rock its always being renewed and Magyar Posse surely helps to the progression of the subgenre because of this I can say that they need more attention.

4.5 star's almost a masterpiece, excellent addition to any experimental/post rock collection and a must for all the subgenre lovers and Enthusiasts.
