Just like the last two albums of the new Kaipa. Mindrevolutions treads similar ground. Nothing new or groundbreaking is happening here but the energy and delivery of each song is well worth the listen. Iíd like to hope one day that Kaipa would bring some of the flavor of their older style back into the fold but until then Kaipa will travel along side The Flower Kings in similarity even though the main person in Kaipa is keyboardist Hans Ludin (a very underrated keyboardist).
The line-up remains the same with Aleena and Patrick LunstrŲrm sharing vocals on some songs and dominating others separately. Jonas Reingold shines here, like he does on any recording heís done. Drummer Morgan Argen is solid even though, in my opinion, isnít allowed to let loose his fury. Of course we have Roine Stolt.
The title track, at almost 26 minutes is my highlight of the CD. Itís worth the price of the CD alone. Itís one of the few modern epics that doesnít sound like bits and pieces meshed together to form a long song. I can only recommend Mindrevolutions to fans of symphonic progressive rock as well as fans of the bands of which the individual players come from.
