The Truth
5 stars I really struggle to say this is the Flower Kings best album because of how many other masterpieces they've released but this certainly seems like one of their most solid efforts. I Am the Sun Part 1 starts off the album great with its killer riff and exceptional lyrics, (one thing I find the FKs struggle at.) Dream On Dreamer has some great vocals by the man Roine Stolt and Rumble Fish Twist is probably the best instrumental by the group ever where the new bassist Jonas Reignhold shows his abilities. Monster Within starts off sounding like an eighties power ballad but eventually turns into excellent symphonic prog with evil sounding vocals. Chicken Farmer Song is one of the weak points of the album but is really just a moment of humor for the band. Underdog starts off with bagpipes which is odd but eventually turns into a song that makes you wonder why the bagpipes are their. You Don't Know What You Got isn't really prog but is almost a folk rock song that is pretty good. Slave to Money is another sample of Stolts best work as well as A Kings Prayer which is the best song on the album in my opinion. I Am the Sun Part 2 isn't as good as part one but it is still an amazing song. I don't know if it was the change in bassists or what but this is an improvement from even a great album like Flower Power!
The Truth | 5/5 |
