This morning I played "The Sum Of No Evil" for the first time in ages. smiley

I must say it's an excellent album and a thoroughly intriguing listen throughout.
"Love Is The Only Answer" is a stand-out track; an epic in actual fact. It has to be one of my favourite TFK's songs. smiley


I have to agree with you. TSONE may actually be my favorite TFK album, perhaps because it's the only one that came out after I had become a fan, or because of the memories I have associated with it -- or perhaps just because I really like it. wink

And "Love Is The Only Answer" is one of my favorites too. There are just so many great moments in that one.

Currently playing:

The Flower King

The album that started it all.
I'd forgotten just how good this album is. The first three tracks are just amazing. In fact, The Magic Circus Of Zeb is probably one of my favourite TFK instrumentals. It's time they played it live! Brilliant. cool

I saw Circus Brimstone play that track in a small club in London on the instrumental tour they played a few years ago.

It's dawning on me how lucky I was to witness that tour and how much I'd love to see that happen again wink

It was just Roine, Jonas, Tomas and Markus and the support band was Magenta.

What a night!

This is why I always prefer small clubs. Far better atmosphere and, often, better sound too.
Yes Nov, you were very lucky. wink

KARMAKANIC: IN A PERFECT WORLD

KARMAKANIC's new, organic, warm, and decidedly human progressive rock studio album is: 'A Perfect World'. - A seven-course musical feast that will leave the listener hungry for more!

The KARMAKANIC mastermind / bassist Jonas Reingold (FLOWERKINGS) isn't out to re-invent the progressive rock wheel with this new album - On the contrary, in a genre that is overpopulated with artists obsessed with often inhuman instrumental fireworks, he has delivered a package that stands out for being organic, warm, and decidedly human. While lines can be drawn to Prog-Rock greats such as: DREAM THEATER, AYREON and FATES WARNING, it's the hints of everything from STYX to DEEP PURPLE to the BEATLES to YES will make KARMAKANIC's latest outing a seven-track (plus Bonus Material) a work to savour.
'In A Perfect World' has an unexpectedly smooth flow of musical ideas and styles from beginning to end. Steeped in an instantly recognizable 70's vibe, each of the seven main tracks have their own unique personalities without sounding mismatched. Whether it's the opening romp of: '1969' or the smokey blues 10-minute outro of: 'When Fear Came To Town', 'In A Perfect World' never derails itself under the weight of its own creative genius.
With regards to his varied stylistic influences and the lines drawn between KARMAKANIC and artists outside of the Prog-Rock genre - a box Reingold is quite comfortable in - he feels it's a natural occurrence as a product of one's environment.
This time out, however, Reingold's big focus was on the lyrics for the album's seven tracks. As inspired as he was to write the music, without an equal amount of time spent on the lyrics he believes the album would be lacking a backbone. Because of his lyrical focus, fans will find 'In A Perfect World' much stronger than any of the band's previous releases.
Track List:
01. 1969 (14:40)
02. Turn It Up (6:53)
03. The World Is Caving In (8:58)
04. Canīt Take It With You (5:42)
05. There's Nothing Wrong With The World (7:22)
06. Bite The Grit (4:57)
07. When Fear Came To Town (9:54)
08. Turn It Up [radio edit] (4:39) * Bonus Track *
09. Send A Message From The Heart [video] (22:34) * Bonus Track *

Great news about Karmakanic -- yay! cheesy

Thanks for posting this. smiley

On a somewhat TFK-related note, I just ordered Roine's Hydrophonia the other day and will hopefully be getting Wallstreet Voodoo before long as well. I know they're two totally different styles, but both sounded promising. cheesy

You're in for a real treat. WV is a wonderful journey into progressive blues as only Roine Stolt could pull off. Hydrophonia should be considered a progressive rock classic. It's an amazing album and gets played often.

Released in North American on 26th July so Europe likely before that. I will post when I confirm the date.

Hydrophonia is just the most gorgeous instrumental symphonic prog album you can imagine. You'll love it wink

I'm not a great fan of the blues so probably like only about half of WSV. Mind you, there are so many different styles on there that it's probably the only blues album I'll ever need grin
