I sometimes consider 'The Flower King' and 'BITWOA' as sister albums. So if you like one, you should like them both.
Happy listening!

I don't understand why you thought it was going to be bad Fraser undecided

This album, along with The Light by Spock's Beard and Hybris by Anglagard we're considered the trail-blazers for the 90s resurgence of prog rock after the extremely average 80s.

I love it to bits.

So, does anyone here like The Flower Kings? smiley

Well, thanks to Nikki's insistance, I got Flower Power.
I've got to say I absolutely love it grin, so you can now count me in as one of the gang laugh

I especially love 'Magic Pie', which has become a song of great importance to me in my life smiley

Thanks Nikki wink kiss

Comments from Pat Mastellotto about playing with The Flower Kings:

"Just finished Euopean tour, 16 very special shows with The Flower Kings, and have to shout out: Joy to the WORLD and Joy to The Flower Kings and crew!"

"Surprise surprise when we arrived at Zoetermeer a few days ago a video crew was waiting for us (shucks, had i known i would have shavedsmiley. . . so there may be a little DVD action from this tour. ."

"Did i mention that Jonas IS the world's MOST progressive bass player?"


Great stuff!!

Context mate!...context and my first impression, which was that it was shite!...(with the notable exception of 'The Magic Circus of Zeb')

Don't worry - my second impression is a little more favourable!

The context is important as at the time I got 'The Flower King' and gave it a try, I was also discovering several other groups and my first impression of the likes of: 'Milliontown', 'Fear of a Blank Planet' and 'Pictures' , was so much better than that! shocked

...anyway!...as of yesterday I'm officially back listening to 'The Flower King' (but it has to vie with 'Second Life Syndrome' which has just arrived wink )

cheers

But the whole album is wonderful! wink

So got Paradox Hotel out for a play grin
How flippin great is this after a long spell away?

Fraser, if i'd known you were going to say that about Flower Power i'd have left you to walk to your hotel after The Phantoms gig tongue wink
What's more i'd have left Tanya with you shocked now that would have been really bad of me wink laugh laugh laugh laugh
Just kidding mate, in 6 months time you'll think it's fantastic wink Probably ............. grin

That's what I like about Nikki.
She goes missing for centuries, then returns with a very brief and curt message.
Marvellous girl! grin

All we've got to do now is concince Fraser how brilliant it is.

Well there's not really a level up from Flower Power is there? He's gone in right at the top level........

The Space Revolver level possibly

........apart from that level of course wink

I thought you were going off TFK in favour of Riverside and The Phantoms to be honest.

The longer you leave it, the better it is when you whip it out for a play wink

Quite right !!

Did you stay over after the gig then Fraser. I hope you felt it was all worth it.

DEFINITELY!!

Actually, I'm thinking that Fraser prefers more straight ahead kinda stuff and sort of knows on first play if he's going to like something. Riverside and PT are much more immediate bands than TFK and I can understand why Fraser finds some of the TFK stuff a bit hard work.

Err....better get some tea on the go.

Laters........

If you think you need a break from them then take it Gooner. There's no point in trying to appreciate "Flower Power" if you're not in the mood for it mate.

I'm having a bit of a break from them myself. Everything seemed to be leading up to the concert and now that's in the past, I feel I need a bit of a TFK holiday. Mind you, I'm pretty busy with gigs and rehearsals of my own at the moment anyway.

After a few months, you'll come back refreshed to them and be ready for "Flower Power".
