2003 – Tomas Bodin – Sonic Boulevard

Tomas’ follow up to his successful solo-album Pinup Guru. His trademark progrock keys are evident but this time jazz fusion makes a much stronger presence. At times you even think of bands like Return To Forever. The songs are very tasteful and there are vocals without lyrics.

The music is very symphonic and very well produced Jonas and his other Flower Kings band mates appear once again but Tomas still manages to keep his own imprint on the sound. Overall the album is very enjoyable and you will listen to over and over again to discover even more each time.
