Found this or Dave did online today.

"Please join me in a big Congratulations to Ed for the the 2007 Dutch Progressive Rock Poll Artwork of the Year Award. Topping the artwork poll for the third time in five years! His surreal images have been a favourite for bands and fans alike, and his Fish-Bus for The Flower Kings' The Sum Of No Evil proved a masterstroke. Ed has place in the top three in the DPRP awards for the last 5 years.





We also wish to congratulate Lasse Hoile's for his cover "Fear Of A Blank Planet" - Porcupine Tree, Mark Wilkinson - "13th Star" - Fish, Hugh Syme - "Systemic Chaos" - Dream Theater, and new comer Antonio Sejas - "Night" - Gazpacho.

In total 123 different albums got voted for in the 'Best Artwork' category.

We also would like to congratulate our Friends - The Flower Kings, for its honors in the Best Album and Best Tracks and The Tangent for it award in the DVD category and to The Reasoning and The Gourishanker voted top for Best Newcomers in 2007.

Please visit the Dutch Progressive Rock Poll 2007 to see other honorees.

We wish to thank DPRP and their many supporters for all that they do to promote Progressive Rock Music!"

You're too good to me Colin!
I've looked for it on Amazon, Play.com and GFT and drawn a blank.
I think the cover is superb too. smiley

Anyway, we've hi-jacked this thread a bit, haven't we! embarassed

Back on topic, I listened to Retropolis twice in a row last night. It's growing rapidly! Great stuff!


Retropolis is a great album isn't it? Some marvellous music on there. It has been said, more than once, that, of all Flower Kings albums, this is the one most like Genesis.
And I think, in part, there's a ring of truth about that;
almost a feel or mood of Wind & Wuthering in parts. That's how I feel about it, anyway. I'm sure others will disagree totally! rolleyes

Following on from my last post, I just had to play Retropolis today.
And it confirmed my worst fears - it's brilliant! wink

Well, it doesn't sound like W&W much, but there are little parts that I think are not too far away. I think what it is, overall, W&W flows well, all the songs merging very nicely and setting a certain atmosphere.
For me, Retropolis does the same thing; all the songs blend well with each other, and create an atmosphere of unity. Ok, it's a little lighter, less autumnal than W&W but it does remind me of it.
I'll shut up now, I know what I mean anyway! cheesy

Next time I listen to it I'll take what you said into account. The thing is, at the moment, I don't know it well enough. Might put it on now. smiley

Can't remember what I payed. I got it through Amazon. I think it was a pretty similar price.
Anyway, it's a great set, although I've not played the cds that much. I usually just watch the dvds. I did play the cds the other week though. Excellent stuff. wink

Speaking of sets that come with both the DVD and CD, Hackett's "Hungarian Horizons" CDs were played here over the weekend. The set comes with one DVD and 2 CDs. It is absolutely brilliant, whether you watch the DVD or pop in the CDs.

This is music that can be played when you have company over, but it is equally enjoyable for personal listening due to the impressive talent oozing from Steve, John and Roger. What a great listen!

Over 110 minutes of beautiful music!

Steve, John and Roger - weren't they once known as The Scaffold? grin
Seriously, that's a dvd I intend to get some time this year.

Speaking of TFK, my weekend frenzy never materialised, due to me having other things to do, and some FA cup games to watch. Maybe next weekend.
Nevertheless, I did play Retropolis three times.
My parcel arrived today from Amazon, containing Tomas Bodin - Pinup Guru, and Neal Morse - Question.
Haven't played them yet, but I can't hold off forever... grin
