5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another Flower Kings Gem, 29 Aug 2007

This review is from: The Road back Home (Audio CD)
When I bought this cd I was a little bit wary that I was just spending money for more Flower Kings stuff that I already own from the back catalogue. What seems even more bizarre is buying a compilation of remastered and tweaked tracks that are only a year or two old (Paradox Hotel). My other trepidation is messing with tracks that are so special in the memory and the heart (sounds cheesy, but the flower kings reach parts other bands can't reach). I was dreading to think how you can make classics such as the 'ghost of the red cloud', 'world without a heart', 'rhythm of the sea' to name but a few any better without ruining the very fabric of what made them so special in the first place.
I can't honestly begin to express what a genius Roine Stolt is. Not only are these songs crisper, clearer and better; they seem more vital, more alive and even more personal than ever before. These tracks are just an emotional overload as everything you previously loved about flower kings comes flooding back with a new vibrancy and a passion for music that no other band can come close to (to me anyway!)
What's probably most surprising is that the track 'What if God is alone' from the Paradox Hotel (still in its infancy) could be made to sound any better. How do you re-jig a 1 year old song and make it sound twice as good? Ask Roine Stolt coz I don't have a clue!

A must have for any Flower Kings fans out there, or anyone that wishes to find an awe inspiring band of limitless talent and unsurpassed music creation. It's not a waste of money if you have all the back catalogue. It's just another Flower Kings Gem

5.0 out of 5 stars A brand new record, 16 July 2007
This review is from: The Road back Home (Audio CD)
This CD is not a simply "best of" ... this is more and better than a compilation. All the tracks have been remastered and the sound is excellent. Some of them have been re-recordered and the new versions have some sligth changes that will be very grateful to your ears. These are some of the better "shorts" in the Flower Kings'career, and the new versions (a special mention to keyboards and bass lines) sometimes create new songs. I like it very, very much and I strongly recomended not only to FK fans but to any kind of music lovers.
