First album of reincarnated edition of swedish 70’s progrock giants. Outstanding musicianship with a twist of Styx. The Flower Kings was more or less founded out of the ashes of Kaipa and on this album Roine Stolt is re-united with Hans Lundin, accompanied by Jonas on bass, drum madman Ågren and Lundström on vocals.
Lundström adds a nice flavour to the tracks that sound very much like The Flower Kings and he illustrates what a great singer he is. Lundin introduces the immortal mellotron as well as some more vintage sounds and the rhythm section is quite brilliant and clear. The harmonic interaction between Stolt’s guitar and Lundin’s keys is great all over the album.
