MKN これぞドリームポップ、というような淡くてポップな印象だった前作『Wild Notion』のアートワークとは真逆な、不気味ささえ感じるピエロのジャケット。全体的に黒でまとめられていて、非常にシック。

紅一点ヴォーカルSophiaの歌声は、楽曲がどんなテイストのものでも際立つ。暗い曲でも、とびきりに明るい曲でも。最初のトラック「Night Train」では憂いに満ちた曲。どこにいくのか分からない夜行列車に乗っている感じがする。不安と希望が入り乱れるような。

しかし、曲を聴き進めていってレコードを裏返しB面を聴き始めると清々しい「Fortune Teller」のトラックが始まる。シューゲイザーをベースとしたサウンドに、まるで霧が晴れたかのようなバンドサウンドに心が躍る。

このレコードを聴いている間は、なんだか自分が"人生という列車"に乗っている気がする。本作はストーリー性もあって、前作『Wild Notion』を聴いているだけでは知りえなかった、バンドの魅力をまたひとつ知ることができた。 Favorite track: Night Train.

H.L. Sometimes I need music for the soft moments in life and NIGHT FLOWERS deliver what I need. "Fortune Tellers" features relaxed indie pop without sharp edges but with catchiness and a very decent melancholic undertone. Maybe not an album to become a classic but more than good enough for the moment. Nice! Favorite track: Carry On.

Agent K Not as immediately striking as debut LP "Wild Notion."
This collection fits more in the Indie/Pop vein than its Dream-Pop predecessor.
Sophia's vocals are the highlight of this set once again especially on "Lotta Love".
"Merry Go-Round" sparkles as an upbeat <3 minute "pop single track."
The title track is most reminiscent of "dream-pop" style on LP1 & is best track here.
The back 1/2 shows stronger than 1st 1/2 & finds the band growing in more diverse styles.
A Grower w/ a strong finish. Favorite track: Fortune Teller.

Night Train 04:38
N I G H T T R A I N thought I saw you on a night train you were racing through the dark knew that nothing could be the same should’ve known it from the start thought I saw you on a night train guess I had a change of heart you were looking for somebody to blame I could never play that part that’s when I see your face yeah when the sun goes down that’s when I call your name that’s when I need you round that’s when I see your ghost yeah when the night falls down that’s when I need you most that’s when I need you round I’ll be forever where you are
2.
Lotta Love 04:20
L O T T A L O V E another fall and I’ve got you on my mind hear you call you were always hard to find do you feel a lotta love? and I’m born like a new moon on the rise from many places many faces many lives and I feel a lotta love
3.
M E R R Y G O R O U N D late summer evening shadows climb the wall up to the ceiling further than before caught up cornered in the darkness before dawn light up my love there’s a long long way to go hitch a ride on a merry go round well the world spins out and I can’t slow down turn around and I fall apart it’s a long way to go for a broken heart too hot for sleeping dark night of the soul awake but dreaming how far can you fall? hitch a ride on a merry go round well the world spins out and I can’t slow down turn around and I’m back to the start it’s a long way to go for a broken heart
4.
P E R F E C T S T O R M hold the ropes in the middle of the thread there’s a long way to go but you didn’t have the mettle in the middle of the perfect storm you took to playing dead and it grew cold over slopes over rivers running red well the engine rolled over and you got it in your head and in the middle of the motorway you took to playing dead and it grew cold
5.
F O R T U N E T E L L E R the seven and I ride in the moonlight the motorway’s empty and it feels right so ready or not it beckons me closer a song on the airwaves plays out our luck father and mother earth inspires woven together sacrifice reading the future on your face this is the moment we embrace pull up the car in the middle of nowhere and there in the headlights we make believe the devil and I ride in the moonlight the feeling is high and it feels right so ready or not I beckon you closer and under this sky it feels alright this is the moment and the place so tear up the cards if fate’s an illusion you’re loving me back now you turn and leave
6.
Carry On 03:19
C A R R Y O N set the room spinning moth to candlelight don’t think I will baby but maybe I just might might be forgotten maybe that’s our lot but soon the room might bloom just when the world forgot let the world carry on devil is singing humming in the night from the beginning we’ve been running out of time might be forsaken maybe that’s alright that’s cool the room might bloom just when they cut the lights let the world carry on cause I’m old enough to know where I went wrong let it fall out of sight cause I’m old enough to know where I went right
7.
I ‘ V E L O V E D Y O U ( S U C H A L O N G T I M E ) I’m gonna need a helping hand my candle burns at both ends my body trades beginner’s luck I can’t believe the time it took your story fades right into mine if my heart breaks I guess it’s fine I don’t sleep I don’t mind I’ve loved you such a long time another week another night I’ve loved you such a long time baby I’ve loved you such a long time I’m gonna need your help old friend I’m gonna keep the words you send I’ll take those odds and hold them close cos where we meet no one knows the hurting fades along the line I know it takes a little time another year passes by I’ve loved you such a long time baby I’ve loved you such a long time
