Several listenings in:

Banks of Eden = sheer listening pleasure. The epic and the shorter songs. Great musicianship but melodic with it.

Could be in my top 3 along with Space Revolver and Paradox Hotel

Now playing:

The Road Back Home - disc 1

Great compilation, enhanced in some cases by the re-recordings of songs, making them just that little bit different. wink

So glad to hear this. cheesy I had a feeling you would really like it, but it's good to have confirmation. wink

Not sure if it beats TSONE for me, but it's darn close!

Blimey!

When I said BoE is in a different league to TSONE, I'm saying that for me, it's like the difference between the Premiership and the Blue Square Southern Division!!

Since I'm not from the UK I probably don't fully understand the reference, but I'm guessing it would be like saying BoE is in the Majors while TSONE is in the Pee Wee league. grin

To each their own. smiley

TSONE holds a really special place in my heart for some reason. Love Is The Only Answer still blows me away when I hear it -- and Ulf Wallander's saxophone just adds so much!

Steady now Nov. Relax, take a few deep breaths and check your bloody pressure mate. Keep calm and give me a carefully thought out and considered answer to my next question:

Do you like it then?

Just had to play both discs of: Flower Power! One last night, one just before.
Still a simply amazing album.
Funnily enough, I haven't touched Banks Of Eden for a few days, simply because I've been going through the rest of their fantastic catalogue.

Ah, Flower Power... That's an album I should return to. It has been so long since I've heard it -- possibly years. shocked

Listening to For Love of Gold this morning. Isn't that a wonderful song?
