sounds like an excellent day chessman, had a niceday myself, listening to a lot of flower kings. can't get better than that can it?

Well, I just bought The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway. I know this isn't a genesis thread, i feel like home in this thread, so i found it more appropriate. Does it take as many listenings to like than it does with flower kings in the beginning? I have only heard the first track for now, and i like what i hear. amazing piano intro! Sounds pretty decent so far.

i remember Nov talking about roine making a tribute to genesis in back in the world of adventures in the instrumental section at about 8:50 or so. Is this little piece n this album? If so, it's worth it's money by that alone grin

KAIPA: New album and new guitar player for Kaipa!
In May 2007 KAIPA will release their 9th and brand new studio album "Angling feelings" on InsideOut Music. This is the first Kaipa album with new guitar player Per Nilsson. Kaipa’s mastermind and keyboard player Hans Lundin and Per are old friends and worked together recording the album "Hagen: Corridors of time" in the late 90’s. Per is nowadays mostly famous as the lead guitar player in Swedish metal band Scar Symmetry.

Hans has written all the songs for the new album and in co-operation with the other members Morgan Ågren, Jonas Reingold, Per Nilsson, Patrik Lundström and Aleena Gibson he has formed the final result. Sound clips from the new album will be available at MySpace.

Hans describes the birth of this album: During the summer of 2005 I worked with the Kaipa box and I didn’t make any attempt to write new music. When I started to write the songs for this album in October 2005 I was afraid that I was totally out of ideas but the fact is it was like opening a magical box and in less than three months most of the songs for the new album were written. With this album I allowed the music to find it’s own direction and sometimes flow in very unexpected directions but also to be very simple when I felt it was necessary. I wanted to make a progressive music but not in the traditional way. When I listen to the final result I think the best description of the music on this album would be: Progressive-fusion-folk-rock. The title track “Angling feelings” is inspired by Jan Ternald’s original artwork for the album and as a fact I think during the whole writing process I tried to keep up this positive vibe I find in this artwork. This is probably the most joyful and relaxed recording session I’ve ever been involved in and I hope you can hear it in the final result.

1. Angling feelings
2. The glorious silence within
3. The fleeting existence of time
4. Pulsation
5. Liquid holes in the sky
6. Solitary pathway
7. Broken chords
8. Path of humbleness
9. Where’s the captain?
10. This ship of life

How about lying in bed with a gorgeous girl who gets extremely passionate when listening to The Flower Kings?

That would be a little bit better cheesy

I've known (and loved) this album for almost 30 years Didrik (and I'm only 26) so it's amazing to me that you're hearing this for the first time. What an experience for you. Yes, it does take some getting used to but it will stay with you for the rest of your life. Did you not get to see The Musical Box performing a "Lamb" concert?

Are you going to see Genesis in the summer? They will play at least 2 songs from The Lamb wink

It's at 7:50 and it's not from The Lamb. It's from a track on "Nursery Cryme" wink

well nov, that would indeed be sweet. but in my world, it does seem quite impossible. i have yet to meet a girl (in the flesh) that likes the flower kings... ahhhh, now you got me hoping!! sad

well, so far, i've just had time to finish the first listening. overall: very good
some songs: not that good, at least not yet
some other songs: simply amazing.
i really loved the keyboards on the verse of the light dies down.. and the laiba, and carpet crawlers, in a cage, some og slippermen, and the wonerful intro of the chamber of 32 doors was amazing, really reminded of tfk.. and to think of the price, (approx. 8£), it was a bargain. too bad it's only downloaded from itunes, I hvae to get the real thing later..

and i have never seen genesis no. i thought that all there was too it was some of the radio songs off the post-gabriel era. never seemed like my cup of tea really, i'm glad to have discovered that there's another genesis too grin

if they come to norway, i will probably see them. what is the lineup? is hackett and gabriel back?

good night to you all

Boy are you in for a treat! The Lamb is only my favourite album of all time! It has a unique atmosphere, even amongst Genesis albums. Every track is wonderful, and don't pay any attention to those who tell you that disc two is weaker. I think they are equally brilliant. If anything, disc two might even edge it!
Didn't take me too long to get into it. Second play I think, back in '74. First play I thought 'interesting', second play I thought 'wow!'
Some superlative keyboard work from Tony throughout, and some of Steve's finest moments on guitar too.
Anyway, it's just a magnificent piece of work all round IMO of course! grin
Oh, and yes! The title track is on TFK's AOPE. And it's a wonderful version too! Powerful and inspired it's the type of song that gets everyone singing along. smiley

Thanks for the heads up on this Nov.

I really enjoy listening to the 2005 release "Mindrevolutions"

So much good music, I'll need to give up drinking beer to afford them all, methinks wink smiley

I can't for the life of me understand why today's greatest prog bands aren't rallied 'round on this site.

Most of the people who frequent this site will never view any of the posts in this thread. These "haters of new prog" have an unusual aversion to:

The Flower Kings http://www.flowerkings.se/
The Tangent http://www.thetangent.org/
Kaipa http://www.kaipa.info/
Porcupine Tree http://www.porcupinetree.com/
Neal Morse http://www.nealmorse.com/
Spock's Beard http://www.spocksbeard.com/
Frost http://www.frost-music.com/news.htm
Mars Volta http://www.themarsvolta.co.uk/
Rocket Scientists http://www.thetank.com/

(anything new for that matter)

But if you post about
Gentle Giant
Camel
Renaissance
Genesis
YES
Rush
ELP
King Crimson
Gong
Soft Machine
Pink Floyd

they show up in droves to discuss these great progressive rock bands of the past.

There are only a few people out of the thousands that frequent this site who even bother to view threads about any of the bands mentioned at the top of this post.

I think it's a shame. They're missing out on a lot of wonderful progressive rock music, much of which is in the style of the bands the "haters of new prog" revere.

When I think of the rut I was in musically prior to joining forces with the old Genesis Talking Shop, it makes me want to SHOUT OUT to all those who insist on living a stagnant progressive rock existence, because today's prog bands not only make wonderful music, they have as many relevant points of view in their lyrics as the great progressive rock bands of 30 years ago.

COME ON GENESIS LOVERS, THERE'S A WHOLE NEW WORLD FOR YOU TO EXPLORE.

Hi Peng,
I suspect 'virtual keyboards' simply means something along the lines of sampled instruments or sounds downloaded from the internet.
Not that Lundin needs to use such things, as he is a great keyboard player anyway!
I might be wrong, and if I am, I am sure someone else will come on and give us the correct answer! grin

Well said, COT!
There are too many people out there who think that any music produced after 1979, say, or earlier, can't be worth anything.
I was a big prog fan in the '70s, yet am proud to say I am a big prog fan of the current era as well.
I don't care how old, or how new music is, if I like it that is all that matters to me. Of course, there are modern bands I am not keen on, but that's nothing to do with the fact they are modern, eg: Dream Theater, Sigur Ros. But, by the same token, there were bands in the '70s I wasn't keen on either, eg: King Crimson, ELP.
So it all balances out really. I find music stops me growing old and stale as well! cheesy

I bought Selling Englang and The Lamb today. i bought the lamb from itunes yesterday, and found it so good i had to have the real cd version as well, and threw in selling england too.. i have just finished listening to the moonlit knight, so i don't have a real impression yet, but it seems really nicesmiley I se now where most of you guys get your screen names from now wink

Smart move Didrik, hope you enjoy these as much as we all do.

Selling England is my fav album of all, but I love all the early ones with a passion!

Well this drives me mad as well but I don't think it's necessarly a problem on this forum.

This is easily the most lively thread in this section and I draws people in because people are intrigued by it. If people are attracted to it and show an interest in The Flower Kings then I'm more than happy to send them a taster CD. This is exactly what happened with Nikki for example and now she adores TFK.

Why don't you start a new thread called something like "Give the old prog a rest and listen to these amazing new bands" and cut and paste your post into it. Then repeat it on the official Genesis site. I'll do it for you if you like.
