Unfold the Future is the seventh studio album by the progressive rock band The Flower Kings, which was released in 2002. It is also the band's third studio double-CD. This album is the first appearance of both drummer Zoltan Csörsz, replacing the original member Jaime Salazar, and Pain of Salvation's frontman Daniel Gildenlöw, the latter as a guest vocalist on several tracks.

Unfold The Future is a music studio album recording by THE FLOWER KINGS (Symphonic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 2002 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. He wallows in the excessiveness. Unfold the Future, Roine's eighth studio effort as front man for the Flower Kings, relishes excessiveness to the point of verging on cumbersome. Nothing appears to have been left on the cutting room floor and I believe if you checked, the studio's bathroom sink would be misssing. Unfold the future has a lot to offer, maybe too much.

The Flower Kings are a Swedish progressive rock band formed in 1994 by guitarist and singer-songwriter Roine Stolt. The group began as Stolt's touring band to support his third solo album The Flower King. They continued performing after the tour and have gone on to become one of the most prolific studio recording units in progressive rock, having released nearly twenty hours of music spread across twelve studio albums

IOMLP 112, 88985452371. Unfold The Future ‎(3xLP, Album, RM, Red + 2xCD, Album, RM + Ltd, RE). Inside Out Music, Sony Music. IOMLP 112, 88985452371. This is definitely the album that marked a new era for the band, as they were moving towards more sound, driven by newest members - "rhythm section extraordinaire" - Jonas Reingold and Zoltan Csorsz. Sevaral tracks could be regarded by some listeners as "filler" or "experimental for the sake of experiment", but, still, there are recognizable TFK compositions, particularly in the form of glorious The Truth Will Set You Free and Devil's Playground epics.

Exclusively for Prime members. Like their last few albums, the Flower Kings' "Unfold the Future" is a fine piece of progressive rock, but it's not as good as their first few CDs. Among long-time fans of progressive rock, it's common to hear one complain of a band's work, "Their old stuff was better!" It's rare, however, to hear such a sentiment in regards to one of the new wave of prog bands who so lovingly and enthusiastically invoke the spirit of the genre's 1970s originators

It took Genesis a quarter of a century to do the same. Are the Swedish guys doing too much? Astonishingly, no. Unfold the Future is a strong album, better than its predecessor, The Rainmaker. It could have been scaled down to a single-disc affair without leaving much crucial material behind, but it still works well as it is. The group's short flirt with a harder-edged sound is now over. Instead, the music builds upon the jazzier vein that was buried deep into The Rainmaker - that and ballads, lots of ballads.

This is definitely the album that marked a new era for the band, as they were moving towards more jazz/fusion-oriented sound, driven by newest members - "rhythm section extraordinaire" - Jonas Reingold and Zoltan Csorsz. Sevaral tracks could be regarded by some listeners as "filler" or "experimental for the sake of experiment", but, still, there are recognizable TFK compositions, particularly in the form of glorious The Truth Will Set You Free and Devil's Playground epics. Be prepared for more "weirdness" than usual though!All in all, a very strong release, but it requires many pretty close listens to fully appreciate the wide array of styles it contains.
