Having recently bought the wonderfully talented Roine Stolt's solo CD, 'The Flower King', and The Flower Kings brilliant CD 'Retropolis', I 'gambled' on this double CD being good as well. I needn't have worried, as this is an absolute 'Master Work'. Fabulous songs and playing . . . the long 'suite' (Garden Of Dreams) must become a 'classic'. All the small sections/songs are memorable. No needless soloing and filling. Roine Stolt and Tomas Bodin are Prog Rock's Lennon/ McCartney ! This is a must for anyone who loves good Rock/Pop music. Ok, call it Prog Rock if you must. Disc two is a collection of great songs too. 'Stupid Girl', 'Psychedelic Postcard/Hudson River Sirens Call', 'Painter' and 'Calling Home', all awesome songs. My advice is buy it right now. It will become a favourite in your CD collection.
