I'm trying to resist buying any more TFK cd's this month as i think iv'e got enough to absorb for the moment, but i fear i'm going to be like Steve and give in to the temptation, it's just too strong, and i'm so easily led .....



So bearing in mind what i just said about being easily led ...... do you think i'll cave in or hold out on the TFK CD's front for this month?! smiley

Do you really expect an answer other than: cave in and spend loads? grin
You have an addiction, my dear, and you need to feed it.
However, I echo your sentiments about getting used to what you've got first. So try not to spend for a couple of weeks if you can manage that. smiley
And as for your avatar, I can see the same as Nov. shocked

I'd say chill out for a bit and absorb what you've got so far wink

You've got the delectable "Flower Power" to look forward to and often, delaying gratification leads to greater satisfaction as I'm sure you're well aware wink














Personally, I've never managed it grin

So, you need:

The Flower King (This is a Roine album but to me it's TFK)
Flower Power
Adam and Eve

There's another 4 hours (or so) of amazing TFK music on those 3 albums alone wink

Cucumbers, whipped cream, and the entire contents of the local Anne Summers! There! I've said it! grin

Seriously, as Nov says, you have three tremendous albums to go. I know Adam & Eve isn't one of his faves, but I love it. A fine album. And as he says, The Flower King is the one that started it all off. Roine plays guitar, bass & keyboards on it, Jaime Salazar is the drummer on some tracks, Ulf Wallander supples sax (sax I said!), Hasse Bruniusson adds some percussion and does the drumming duties on the other tracks, and .....Mr Froberg adds his tonsils to the first and last tracks.
So it's almost a Flower Kings album! And bloody good it is too!
(Saying nothing about Flower Power - you know my feelings about that one! Leave that till last!)

Then...when you have all those, you may consider the two live albums - Alive On Planet Earth & Meet The Flower Kings, and then there's the dvd, Meet The Flower Kings.
Then there's the compilation, Scanning The Greenhouse, and then there's the new compilation due out, The Road Back Home....then there's the new album..... shocked


Enjoy!

Fabulous! Lots to look forward to then grin

Am having a bit of a TFK frenzy today actually, as on nights Thurs, Fri and Sun, so free uninterrupted use of the sound system in this house will be extremely limited!
Got Sat night off, to go and see GITC at Chesham, couldn't miss that, and literally up the road so a few ciders will be involved too! grin

So back to the TFK frenzy ....... have had The Rainmaker, Unfold The Future and currently on Space Revolver smiley
That is an awesome album, i feel like i know all the tracks on that really well now, i love that feeling grin
Love every single track, without exception, Monster Within is brilliant cheesy

...and then there's Roine's next solo album, Hydrophonia, which is an all instrumental affair. A little different to TFK but still similar at times.
Then there's Mr Bodin's solo albums...
and don't forget Jonas's band, Karmakanic, two albums there with a third one out maybe this year.....
Anyway, I have work to do now, can't swan round the living room with the hifi on like some people, you know! grin
