4 stars Back In The World Of Adventures was a great debut for this fantastic band. It served as an introduction to their brand of positive progressive rock. It is an amalgamation of many popular prog bands, most obviously Yes, Genesis and classic King Crimson, all wrapped up in Roine Stolt and The Flower Kings' own style.

The epics here are beautiful, but I happen to favor the first, World Of Adventure. It's quite possibly the best introduction to a band since 21st Century Schizoid Man. The album isn't perfect. Parts of Theme For a Hero venture into elevator music territory, but when songs get too light, the band seems to know it and doesn't stay in that territory.

This is a fine listen, and worth a solid four stars.

Evolver | 4/5 |
