Well to be honest, I must say that i really love them. I think they are becoming my favorite band of all time, but I think it should wait a few years before deciding anything. But I can picture myself listening to this for ages..
Truly sad that I you guys are almost the only people I really can share it with. I am kinda geting my brother into it too, but he is not properly hooked yet.. I guess I may have to wait for after the next tour.. I may also present them to my dad sonner or later, he may like it..
Will anyone be kind enough to give me a very short review of SWA? I have only heard the title track, in the eyes of the world, circus brimstone and the songs on the road back home that originally is from that album..

Most of all, this is Flowerkings "to the max",I can safely say that anyone that have ,at one point in their life loved Flowerkings ,or progressive rock,as we know it , will most

I agree. They are definitely in my top 5 but my top 3 are pretty fixed (Genesis, The Beatles and Steely Dan) and being rather older than you it's gonna be hard to place TFK above any of them.

One thing is sure, I listen to TFK much more than any other band and have done for some time now.

Don't be sad about it Didrik, be happy that you are able to. Imagine what it was like for us lot in the 70s and 80s before the internet. Luckily Genesis and Yes (etc) were a lot more popular so there were other fans around but I had a hard job sharing my love of Camel.

Who does your Dad like?

I nominate chessman for this as he's great at this sort of thing (OK Carl?). Suffice to say that it's an immense album and an essential purchase. There is just so much fantastic music on it.
