Ok, I don't useally bother to write reviews and such, but this is an exception. In my book, Stardust We Are is one the most incredible albums ever released. Because of it's complex nature, it may take some time before you realise the beauty of this music. But when you do, just about everything else will pale in comparison. Flower Kings mixes rock, pop, classical, jazz, folk and prog into their music, but I guess their music should be classified as progressive and symphonic rock. You can hear some influence from 70s bands like Yes and Genesis, but FK definately have their own style and sound.
The thing that really strikes me with this album, isn't the superb musicianship, or the great production, but the compositions. I don't think I've ever heard more beautiful and interesting songs. Songs like "Church of your heart", "compassion", "stardust we are" etc., makes just about everything in the top20 charts sound so incredible dull in comparison. Progressive rock has gotten a bad reputation, because a lot of music mags love to critize this form of music. This is highly undeserved in my opinion. There are some progressive rock bands though, that focus more on technique than songwriting. FK is certainly not one of those.
A wide range of instruments has been used on this record. You'll hear all those vintage keyboard sounds like hammond, mellotron, clavinet, analog synths etc, but there's also a lot of new exciting keyboard sounds + real church organ and cello etc. All these different instruments, have been used in the most convincing way. In other words, the arrangements and sonic landscapes in Stardust We Are are nothing short of spectacular.
I've noticed that too many cd's get 5 stars here, but this is one that really deserves it.

In my opinion this is the greatest work by the flower kings. Everything about this double cd collection of tracks is utterly perfect. However, when I first purchased this cd I gave it one listen and thought it was their weakest effort, how wrong I was.
After returning to this cd a month or two later, I played it and played it and dared not to like it; as with all music, the best cds are those that seem to take the longest get in to.
Anyway back to stardust we are.
The sheer quantity and quality of music on offer here is breathtaking. The flow of songs and their composition is seemless. It would be impossible to write about all of the tracks here without boring everyone to death, but the first disc is comprised of many haunting, emotional instrumentals, and the songs are of unbelievable quality such as in the eyes of the world and the huge church organ classic 'church of your heart' which showcases the wonderfully talented Tomas Bodin on keys.

The second disc sticks more rigidly to out and out songs and add so many delightful pieces of exotic and eccentric percussion effects from Hasse Bruniusson and atmospheric intros it almost takes you away to another place and time! Roine Stolt is an absolute legend and on this set of songs his vocals along with Hasse Froberg seem more personal and that goes for Roine's guitar playing too.

I really don't want to name any song as a highlight because everything here is one big highlight. I really wish I had the words to do this album justice and explain how vital this music is to anyone that hasn't heard it but unfortunately I can't. Just buy it because I doubt there is any prog rock out there that can touch this!

The sign of any good album is the test of time and this album just continues to grow with every listen. Both CDs on this double album are packed with a variety of great songs and instrumentals. The second disc in particular is full of great tracks, one after another. If you're not accustomed to this style of progressive rock music then it can take a while to sink in, but well worth the journey. I wouldn't say that I'm a massive Prog fan, far from it, but this album is just a pleasure to listen to.

Fabulous stuff!Have to admit I have only just discovered The Flower Kings despite being a longstanding fan of bands like Yes,Genesis,Camel etc. There are definite influences of all those bands here . However it`s not a rip off it`s all original stuff and the musicianship is on a par with all those older bands . They have a large back catalogue so it looks like I`ve got a lot of catching up to do! Highly recommended.

Lets Face it stardust we are is no easy album to listen to it is long and filled to bursting with music it is challenging musically with lots of different time sigs and melodies and layers and polyrythms and allsorts making it challenging but extremely fun too.
There is a great focus on songs like in the eyes of the world and the epic star dust we are, Church of your heart and others and these are interspersed with short pieces some would say filler but I think they are maybe to give everyone a break from the more complex pieces and also yes to fill in the gaps but alot of the short pieces work as good transition pieces there are a few tracks that are not so good but I personally like the long albums. As they all link together and earlier in the album you can hear musical motifs from the main epic song develop before we get to the song too. I am not sure what the lyrics are about but I just like to sing them anyway.
There is plenty of different keyboard sounds used and lots of variety throughout the whole album. And the bass playing is really good along with the guitar and drums too. Surprisingly there is a healthy amount of weird little percussion instruments too just to give it some extra condiments.
All in all a pretty special album but don't expect to listen to this all the way through unless you got at least three hours spare, which is really the only problem
