Well, remember what I said about blondes in my pm?

If Scarlett was coming on to me (so to speak), I'd have to say to her "Scarlett love, just leave it alright. I don't do blondes", (so to speak), "Just lie there and let me look at your sofa".

That's what I'd say to Scarlett, the cheeky moo. Who does she think she is just coming over and asking me out like that?

Some women, eh?

Mind you, I bet she's a Flower Kings fan with a surname like that. She might even be related. She'd have more chance with me if she could sing all the words to "Stardust We Are", I can tell you. Even if she is blonde.

Now, where were we? Ah yes, I've got 7 blokes coming up for a lads night tonight, I'd better get on with the chilli.......

Nov that's not a good picture to show to a man who's just turned single again , my blood pressure can't take it tongue wink

Ok back on topic I have gave the first disc of Paradox a spin but won't pass judgement until i have given both discs a few plays first . Recent experience tells me you have to let FK grow on you until they are inside your head. grin grin

Maybe you can find someone new who looks like Scarlett?

The thing is with bands, once they've got in your head and your soul, you're prepared to give them the necessary time required for any new purchase. There are so many bands out there producing decent prog rock that it's sometimes hard to discern the ones who are producing amazing prog rock and some people write these amazing bands off after only a couple of listens. In fact, wasn't this just like you until recently?

Luckily, you were saved from your Flower Kings wilderness period gooner, so I'm sure you'll like PH once you're used to it. Obviously, over the course of any album of such length there's the odd tracks that even I can't cope with (Bavarian Skies wink) but 90% of it is amazing.

No worries , these things happen we were together 10 year ( married 4) but just drifted apart , getting back on my feet now and the music helps me a lot. Maybe I will meet a prog loving girl , that would be greatsmiley

I have had Space Revolver and Truth for over a year now but after a couple of plays I it didn't grab me and I moved onto Morse/Spocks (discovered Snow which I adore) which is a bit more accessable when you first hear it.But because of this thread in the previous forum I went back to it and it truly hit me and I feel I am on a new journey with this new sound and many more albums to try yet. grin

I know I will love it just haven't had the chance tp play it all yet , I will keep you posted. wink

Shame about the rest of it, eh? grin

My Wife's Brother lives in Tonbridge and he (and his wife) often come over to Kingston to see us.

It's be great to have a few people from this forum at the next gig.

Back on topic again, I have so far resisted the urge to explore The Flower Kings, as there is just so much great stuff out there at the moment. Porcupine Tree, Blackfield, Riverside, Satellite etc, etc, etc.
I have one FK DVD which I've seen once, and to-day found Retropolis at a local car boot sale for £2 wink
I'll play it tomorrow in the car and see what happens undecided

Good man.

Who keeps leading this thread astray?

We're so lucky that there are so many great "new" bands around at the moment. Rest assured though, that The Flower Kings are right up there with them and, for me, the best.

Hope you enjoy it Mal but give it the necessary 5 or 6 listens before forming an opinion. There's some great stuff on that album wink.

Well, just thought I would inform the world at large that I have now ordered Instant Delivery Special Edition from Amazon.UK, and hope to have it by the weekend.
Now I really am looking forward to that immensely.
If it's a let down, I will be round to various forum members houses to complain vehemently that I have been misled and misinformed!
(Can't say which members or Nov and Nikki will be prepared for me!) grin

Yep, I'd say Retropolis is a great album, maybe better than Paradox to my ears. smiley

Those bands that Mal mentioned are real hard to top. TFK? maybe getting there wink

Hey, keep up the good work Nov and others.... grin grin
