Interesting choices. I too rate Jealousy highly. Still not sure of my top three yet, though I do like Hotel Nirvana, it's just so atmospheric, also Babylon is great as is Cosmic Circus; well, those two do go together rather nicely. smiley


I really like the short tracks on Paradox Hotel, I probably could have put any of them on my list.

Same here. It's a quality album from start to finish. At the moment it's in third place in my FK album list. wink

I have a confession...

With all the other great music I've been introduced to by the fab folks on this forum, I sometimes struggle to find the time to fit it all in. It has been quite a while since I last listened to a Flower Kings album (in fact, now I come to think of it, I can't actually remember playing one this year shocked) So last week I decided I just had to put this right and played The sum of no evil I have to say I wasn't very impressed sad
I seem to remember quite liking it when it was released, but now it just doesn't do anything for me. Bit of a downer that...

Anyway, reading this thread tonight has inspired me to try again - so tommorow I'm going to try Paradox Hotel smiley...wish me luck

Those two are my least favorite of all the TFK albums. Try putting on Unfold The Future or Flower Power.

My two favourites! You have great taste Dave.
By the way, did you see your birthday thread in the forum of last resort? Tut tut, you didn't? And I went to all that trouble too.... undecided


grin

Hope you had a good one, my friend.

My God, I am so sorry. I rarely come on here anymore due to my shallow existence of working-eating-sleeping-repeat. I shall check it out right now. Thanks Carl! smiley

Well, I've put all my FK albums on my ipod - the only band with more than 10 albums to its name that can say all it's stuff is on there in fact. Quite pleased with that. smiley

Strange -- I just put on The Sum of No Evil the other day while at work and listened to it beginning to end. I really believe that this is my favorite TFK album. It seems to be the most consistent, having a minimal amount of "filler", in my opinion. And the joyous mood conveyed in the music and lyrics (for the most part; Trading My Soul is a rather bleak track) never fails to lift my spirits when listening to it.

I have a hard time understanding why others don't love it as much as I do, but it's an unquantifiable thing really. I just wish I wasn't in the minority here. cheesy

TSONE helped me through a really depressing period of my life actually, which surprised me as I don't normally find as much emotional connection with TFK's music as I do with Genesis, or Spock's Beard (for example). But this was different somehow. An album like Unfold The Future is excellent, unique and, in places, perhaps even mind-blowing -- and I love stuff like that. But TSONE connected with me at the heart, whereas most others are more of a cerebral thing. If that makes any sense. smiley

That said, right after TSONE the other day I put on Space Revolver and was really getting into it as well. grin

Can't wait to hear some more news on Agents of Mercy.
