The Flower Kings - By Royal Decree

Always undecided with this band. I've tried several albums. Some tracks are great, others I really dislike. Which results in the fact that I own 0 albums from TFK in my collection :-\. Maybe I should make a 'best of' list on Spotify ;).

:). I already listened to it because of 1. but didn't like it at all, probably because of 2. See the quote below ;).

Oh my bad, I see it now. ;D
You know, sometimes I just wonder why it is that people can have such a different opinion on some things. Especially since you and I agree on so many other things. I find it so interesting. I know, I know, so many people so many tastes. But why is that, right?
I think it's 'bizarre' or maybe 'wonderful' is a better term. I don't know. Just my philosophical mind.

Will listen to Wilderun and The Flower Kings soon. I've tried Karfagen, but I prefer music with more vocals.

Oh yes! And I understand! I think Karfagen would benefit a lot from some more vocals. And their (his?) songs are very long, most of the time. They're not bad, but I lose focus after a while. There are some really nice melodies and themes in the music, that would be better in place when the songs were shorter and more focused.
Still, I really like it, for some reason.

np: Marillion - An Hour Before It's Dark

The music is really great. Will listen again, but is it just me? I can hardly hear the lyrics ... because of the vocalist I assume :P.

Steve Hogarth has a really special way of singing indeed. I also think the music is very nice. It's a grower.


Today I listened to:
Ross Jennings - "A Shadow Of My Future Self"
D'Virgilio, Morse & Jennings - "Troika"
Big Big Train - "Welcome To The Planet"
Star One - "Revel In Time"

Yep, unpredictable indeed but that keeps it interesting ;-).

Both D'Virgilio, Morse & Jennings and Star One are disappointments to me (after one listening). Will give them another chance as I usually love their music, but still ... I found D'VM&J 'too much of the same', and I prefer the 'plugged' stuff, Star One 'too predictable' :-\

Nightshift, so I played some music through Spotify.
Marillion, Metallica, Porcupine Tree, Amorphis, Dream Theater.
The latest effort of Marillion is a brilliant album.
