The guitar work is absolutely SUBLIME.
D. Paper
And if you like like blues-rock stylings and Hendrix/Claptonesque music stylings you are gonna love this CD.

I get the feeling that this album has been germinating in Mr. Stolt's mind for many years.

Over the years, we Flower Kings fans have easily recognized his early prog influences such as Yes, Genesis, Crimson and ELP (among others), and his Gibson Les Paul guitar styling has frequently had a very Steve Howe-ish sound. But just as Howe was deeply influenced by some seemingly unlikely suspects like Chet Atkins and Bob Dylan, Stolt bares his soul (no pun intended) on Wall Street Voodoo with nods to some of the early blues-based guitar masters of the late 60's.

For me, this album answers a lot of questions about why Stolt has used certain effects, riffs or political lyrics in recent TFK outings where I thought they sounded a bit awkward or out of sync with the rest of a particular song or album concept. (I'm thinking of the rockier "Don't Let The Devil In", "Monkey Business", "Adam and Eve" and "Genie in a Bottle"; or the more political "Thru the Walls", "Devil's Playground" and "Slave to Money"). In the past, I always attributed it to the quirkier Zappa side of Stolt; but now I suspect it was just Stolt trying to let these important root yearnings of his out to see a little light of day. Even the name of the group and many of their album covers have evoked the "flower power" era of rock 'n' roll.

There's a lot of great music here folks, with inventive guitar solos galore. Just as some blues and classic rock sounds tend to creep into the occasional TFK composition, Stolt has a little trouble keeping some prog from peering around the edges of this latest album of rhythm and blues (and that's just fine with me!).

Okay, I went out and bought the new FLOWER KINGS cd 'Paradox Hotel' when it came out last week, and since there was such a good deal from amazon if I bought stuff over 25 bucks, I decided to grab this release.. two days ago both arrived.

I have not yet listened to the new FLOWER KINGS cd yet.. although I am looking foward to it... I decided to listen to the release I thought would take less time to absorb.. and normally the side releases of any band member tends to be less valuable than the output from a whole band.. but this is a rare example of breaking that rule.

Songs like DIRT, EVERYONE WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD, THE UNWANTED are just three songs over the two disc's that really stand up and grab you outright... but there are so many..

GUITAR playing on this release is just out of this world. There are keyboards on this release, but the tendency to show them off on a typical Flower Kings is absent on this release.. this is all RS jamming and doing it in ways that are not quite typical of RS playing...

Sometimes RS does a completely convincing Jimi. Clapton. Zappa. Quite incredible. And if you like Guitar playing like I do, you will love this CD.

What makes this quite enjoyable is the fact that I didn't quite expect to have this much guitar, and neither did I expect to hear ex Spocks Beard frontman Neal Morse.. and it was all this bonus boost that really makes this release a smash.

I really think that if you like the Flower Kings or anything to do with good guitar playing.. you need to get this CD. Simple as that!

Have fun

Ah, politics in music again, we just can't seem to escape it these days, can we? I am a long-time Roine Stolt fan and have been dazzled by the music on this album, so I'll let his idealistic anti-capitalist rants slide. Anyway,this project is supposed to be Stolt's nod to his musical influences of the sixties and that decade was nothing if not quite radical in many ways.

I am politically a very conservative guy, but being of the sixties I can see where Stolt is coming from with his lyrics here. He is asking questions that never get answered and shows his irritation with a world that seems to be spiralling into a cesspool of greed, corruption and degeneracy. Wall Street Voodoo, idealistic yet somewhat naive, is the reborn spirit of the sixties and it should be refreshing, no matter your politics, to hear such an eloquent expression of discontent as this is.

I like the whole CD, though there are parts that seem a little drawn out. But to me, the highlights are many, and they are as follows:

Disc 1:

1)The Observer-a sledgehammer of anti-capitalist invective with a soulful refrain.

2)Head Above Water-features an excellent Deep Purple style organ interlude.

3)Dirt-Powerful, accusing lyrics and gripping instrumentation.

4)Everyone Wants To Rule the World-With the exception of the refrain, this overflows with Floydian lyrics and imagery.

5)Spirit of the Rebel-A driving, pounding vision of hopelessness.

6)Dog With A Million Bones-a bitter polemic against those who have no wants yet will not share. Some great Luddite invective.

7)Sex Kills-An old Joni Mitchell tune, bitter and enraged, fits perfectly with the spirit of this CD.

8)Outcast-In my opinion, the best song among many good ones.
