I heartily recommend to all of the SUM OF NO EVIL naysayers that they do revisit the album after a one month-or-so hiatus.

I tossed TSONE in the player last night, and it was like discovering TFK all over again. This band has it all. I love them like no other smiley

Neal and The Beard come in a close second though tongue

Totally agree Dave, regarding TSONE. In fact, and I've mentioned this before, it applies to all their albums, I find. Even those I've loved from the start, and which I think I know quite well, can surprise me if I play them after a lengthy lay off.
Just goes to show the strength and talent of this band. There are so many layers in their music, it's hard to take it all in. And, just when you think you're on top of it, something shoots out of a well known piece and surprises you.
I've been listening to so much other stuff lately, yet I know that when I start revisiting TFK's albums, I will be amazed at what I've missed before!
And that's the sign, imo, of a top class, world beating band. wink

I just checked my Flower Kings playlist in iTunes (which contains all their albums) and do you know that there is over 23 hours of music in there, most of it amazing.

There really aren't many bands that have a back catalogue of such quantity AND quality.

Absolutely right Nov. Quantity AND quality. And over a comparatively short space of time.
Imagine, in thirty years say, there could be released the complete Flower Kings collection in box form, including all the albums, the bonus tracks and fan club albums.
Plus the entire dvd collection, with bonus dvds of various shows over the years.
Plus the complete bootleg collection.
Just how many discs would that little lot take? What a fantastic collection for the fans.
We really are lucky this band is around now, in these days of multimedia, dvd, internet and downloads.
There really isn't another band to touch them. (Imo of course.) wink

Just watched Meet The Flower Kings for the first time. The music was great, but I didn't like the way the DVD was set up, extras interspersed with the show. I also wasn't really into the odd visuals they had going on.

I was really impressed by Daniel Gildenlow as a 3rd vocalist. Too bad he isn't still with them. sad

But that got me interested in Pain Of Salvation, so I'm listening to the MP3's on ProgArchives right now. They're now on my list of stuff to buy. grin

Back on TFK, I listened to a semi-random assortment last night before bed, and noticed yet again how much of songs that I said I loved, I didn't really remember hearing before. TFK will be reveling itself to me for many, many years to come.

I know what you mean about the visuals on Meet The Flower Kings. But it doesn't really detract from the music.
As for Daniel Gildenlow, he does an excellent job, doesn't he?
I've been listening to some POS myself lately. They are very good, and Gildenlow's voice is phenomenal at times. He harkens back to the heady days of Robert Plant et al. A natural rocker. A great talent. cheesy

As for TFK, well, that's exactly the point I was making earlier. Their songs have so many layers, they reveal something new to the listener each time they're played.

(Incidentally, I've been revealing myself to many people over the years, but the Police have put a stop to all that; spoilsports!) grin

That's so right.

I've had their albums for several years now but I honestly feel like I'm only just getting to know some of them.
