Format: Audio CD
When I saw that Karmakanic was releasing a new album, I said great news. Although I enjoy The Flower Kings to an extent, I always have a very difficult time getting past Hasse Froberg's voice (only my opinion). I can tolerate Ronie Stolt as I think he has done an exceptional job lending vocal duties to Transatlantic. With Karmakanic, Goran Edman, I think, delivers a very solid performance vocally and seems easier on the ear. From the opening track '1969' to the ending track of 'When Fear Came to Town' each track really delivers. Once again, this is a very solid release from this group and for those of you who have followed them since their first album 'Entering the Spectre' you will not disappointed. The bonus track 'Turn it Up (Radio Edit)' is thrown in, but why would you need that when you already have the full version? That would be my only negative throughout the album. I would have rather have had another track in place of the radio edit. Anyway, this would be a must buy for some new, great progressive rock.

I discovered Karmakanic only a few months ago with "Who's the Boss in the Factory". I really enjoyed this album and I found Karmakanic a little less boring than The Flower Kings, in the sense that they're not going into 15 minute instrumental strange stuff :) I find this new album even better than the previous one, all songs delivers something and I could hear different music styles in all of them, with the progressive aspect being omnipresent.

Really nice album, I think :) I do not put 5 stars in case they do something really awesome one day :D

otherwise, this could be a perfect album. Come on Inside Out, we know that you know. And to make matters worse, the mp3 available on Amazon has the same defect. With that exception, this is melodic prog at it's finest IMO.

Count me among those who don't think that In A Perfect World is a step up from Karmakanic's last outing. Oh, there is a lot to like but overall their new effort is a very mixed bag. For all the hype, Karmakanic seems to have actually taken a step backward musically speaking.
First the good: 1969, the opening cut, is a fine tune strongly evocative of the Flower Kings. Can't Take It With You is an interesting blend of Latin rhythms and elements of heavy metal. There's Nothing Wrong With the World and Bite the Grit are the proggiest, best, and most interesting tracks on the album.
The mediocre: When the World Is Caving In starts weakly but occasionally exhibits flashes of brilliance. Both versions of Turn It Up are too commercial for me, although the unedited version is better with it's percussive introduction and driving keyboards.
The execrable: When Fear Came to Town is a weak piece that features insipid vocals that are followed by a pleasant but uninspired instrumental ending. This could have been left off the album and no one would have missed it.
OK, I haven't yet had the chance to view the video bonus track but I can't imagine that it could improve the rating of In A Perfect World.
The CD comes housed in a standard plastic jewel box and is accompanied by an attractive booklet that features pictures, lyrics, and all appropriate album information. This is an album I can take or leave. I will listen occasionally, but I imagine it will spend a lot of time on the shelf waiting for Karmakanic's next and hopefully better album.

After having purchased the first 3 Karmakanic CD's and listened to the steady musical progression of the band, I was eager to hear what they might do as an encore on their latest effort, A Perfect World. Having heard the 7-minute sampler already, I had a pretty good idea what I was in for, and I certainly was not disappointed. 1969 alone would've been worth the price of admission (their best epic tune to date, and considering what preceded it, that's saying a lot!), but there were several other excellent pieces to flesh out the album. Their longer songs tend to be the best ones on this CD, with When Fear Came to Town having a slow bluesy vibe to it that works surprisingly well. The irony of the CD title comes screaming through repeatedly with probably the best lyrics the band has produced to date (Julia Olsson, I presume?). And of course, there's the musicianship. You'd be hard-pressed to find a more accomplished group of players in any progressive rock band anywhere (not even in Sweden, where they seem to grow them in orchards!). Although I would rate this album only on a par with the previous 2, that's still about the highest compliment a reviewer can give to a band. Progressive music of the highest order!

It took me longer than I wanted to get around to reviewing this latest Karmakanic offering. I find "In A Perfect World" to be on par with their last effort "Who's The Boss In The Factory", maybe even a bit more accessible. Each song is strong with a nice mix between longer and shorter numbers with the majority actually being shorter. I feel they take a little step beyond WTBITF by presenting a more "radio friendly" cut in "Turn It Up" (But, I thought "Let in Hollywood" from their last album was pretty radio friendly, but maybe a bit too long.) and a wonderfully fun number in "Can't Take It With You". (After "1969" probably my favorite cut)It is a really addictive song with a salsa beat that turns prog rock. A tough song to sit still to, and not want to crank up!

The longest cut is the first one "1969", which clocks in at over 14 minutes. While I really dislike to compare today's prog with yesterdays prog "1969" is the most "Yes sounding" song I have heard coming from the Flower Kings camp. The transitions between slow and fast movements, and the guitar work is just too obvious to ignore. This is nothing against the piece it is definitely the center piece. The next longest song at 9:54 is "When Fear Came To Town", a really slow somber song. While I am generally not a fan of long, slow, prog numbers WFCTT is really nice! It starts off with just an acoustic guitar and vocals, then Jonas' base slowly and quietly comes in, and finally keyboards and other instruments fill in the end. I don't really like it placed at the end because it kind of leaves me wanting more. Technically, the radio edit of "Turn It Up" is really at the end, which is really kind of pointless because all they do is shorten the full length version by about two minutes.
