Truth will set you free has to be my fav FK track even though there are many to choose from. I love the way it ebbs and flows reminding me of Genesis, ELP, Yes and Gentle Giant all rolled into one.

After threatening to do it several times in the last few months, I have actually managed to get round to it...I've listened to Flower Power!! shocked

and then last week felt I was ready to go for the big one! wink

...and I'm so glad I did !...

...the first time on monday was hard work - especially the 2nd disk...but with each successive play I'm enjoying it more and more!

In truth, I haven't listened to anything else all week! smiley


...but I'm sticking at it and know it will be well worth all the effort! grin

So there you have it...one man's epic struggle with his nemesis-cd !

You had faith...you knew I could do it! cool

cheers to you all

Crikey shocked

Fraser sees the flippin light over Flower Power wink grin laugh
Nice one mate kiss
I knew you'd get back on the horse so to speak laugh
Well done for that smiley
You know it's my fave so i need say no more except ENJOY grin kiss

I'm inclined to agree with you there.

I've seen them play the whole thing 3 or 4 times and it is absolutely stunning to see live.

I honestly find it extremely difficult, virtually impossible, to choose my fave FK epic. There are so many, and they are all top class.
Nevertheless, in the classic 'gun to my head' scenario, I would probably choose 'Garden Of Dreams' simply because it is so long yet so glorious. wink

Now you're just making me jealous , would love to see the whole thing live as well as stardust and I Am The Sun. Maybe they should do an epic tour like Yes's Masterworks. grin

That is a gorgeous album wink

I'm still getting used to Tomas's solo albums though to be honest.

I really must get back into TFK. I've been sent SO much new music though, I'm taking my time getting through it.

I've been having a bit of a break from TFK but really fancied listening to them on the way into work this morning.

So, I put on "Monsters and Men" smiley

They really do (in my opinion) blow every other current band out of the water.

Stunning stuff.
