  4.)- Eternally Part I (1:51)  
  5.)-Eternally Part II (6:21)  

Karmankanic features Jonas Reingold (bass player with The Flower Kings) and Goran Edman on vocals plus guests include fellow Flower Kings band member Tomas Bodin (keys) and Andy Tillison (The Tangent). This is the third album by the band and lovers of classic progressive rock mixed with some fusion and jazz will enjoy the music on offer here.

The nineteen minutes of 'Send A Message From The Heart' opens the album in suitably grand style and is not unlike the Flower Kings with its vocal melodies, grandiose keys and swooping guitar solos. The title track veers into too much jazz/fusion for my own musical tastes but even so you just listen and marvel at the musical arrangements and musicianship on display. 'Two Blocks From The Edge' reminded me of Pink Floyd when the latter band used saxes or Camel circa 'The Snow Goose' album. Great, classy 70's prog music. The two part 'Eternally' closes the album and features some accordion to add variety plus Goran Edman gets to shine with his melodic tones backed by piano and strings.

Definitely of interest to fans of the Flower Kings and the classic 70's progressive music of bands like Pink Floyd, Camel and Gentle Giant.
