5.0 out of 5 stars The Flower Kings in full bloom!!! 10 Oct 2007
By Dr. D. B. Sillars VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The main problem I have with The Flower Kings is the amount of material they release. I can't remember how many 2CD sets they have produced and even single albums are stuffed to the max. This does mean that quality control can sometimes go out of the window and the wealth of material can make getting through an album very labour intensive. But no such problem with this latest album. It's a single CD and yes it is stuffed to the max, but the material is top notch. The band sound on top form, maybe as a consequence of the excellent drummer Zoltan Csorsz coming back to the fold for these recording sessions. Also worth mentioning that keyboardist Tomas Bodin really shines too on this, utilising a whole host of analogue keyboards.

The opening "One More Time" is a very strong piece to start off the album with. A gorgeous intro theme played by Bodin is very pleasing and the whole song is melodically very strong. Some very nice Holdsworth style guitar playing by Roine Stolt throughout this track too. The vocal interplay between Stolt and Hasse Froberg has never worked better than on this track and throughout the album.

The shortest song on the album, "Trading My Soul" is one of the best Flower King songs ever. Lyrically and melodically this is a winner. The longest track "Love Is The Only Answer" is the one track I am still coming to terms with. At over 24 minutes it does take a bit of digesting. But everything else gels wonderfully. A particular favourite is the Yes-like "Life In Motion", with Stolt even doing some nice Steve Howe type slide guitar.

Special mention about the artwork by the always excellent Ed Unitsky.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 11 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Flower Kings don't get much better than this.
If you like Prog the this is a must.
24 minutes of Love is the only Answer and I still don't want the track to finish.
Lots of gems can't find a bad track.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly great 22 Sep 2008
By R. W.
Format:Audio CD
This is a good solid prog album.

There is much to love here, especially the synth work.

Something about the listening experience bugs me though, therefore no 5*

What is the problem ? It is this. Too many catchy tunes. Why is this a problem ? Let me explain. 3 minute pop songs rely on catchy tunes to hook the listener. 25 minute prog epics stuffed full of cathy tunes get very wearing. One's brain gets clogged up with so many melodies that by the end of the track it is set to explode with tune overload. Less tunes, more structure please.

That aside, this has some of the finest "Yes" moments since Yes stopped producing their finest "Yes" moments. esp track 6.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic from the Flower Kings 2 Nov 2007
By PNeruda
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like this music and if you enjoyed "Paradox Hotel" don't hesitate, buy this one as soon as possible. This is the most amazing prog-rock music in planet Earth. I'm sure that in the future we will remember this band as we do now with Yes or Peter Gabriel's Genesis, and we always will find a music time to play back their musical gems.
