Review by ZowieZiggy
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars This relatively rare mini album holds some rarities and live material.

I must honestly say that the live recordings (April 1996) won't add anything to your TFK discography. "Piece Of Nizzimo" is a dull number very much percussion-oriented. With such a title, I would expect a nice portion of an old Roine great number "Hummanizzimo". Nothing like it, unfortunately.

"Duke Of Nuke", the second live track is another instrumental piece (if you expect some anecdotal words). Very quiet, almost Crimsonesque ("Islands") for the first third. It turns into a complete and messy improvisation. Another boring track.

The version of "The Flower King" featured here is the one you can find on their first compilation album "Scanning the Grenhouse". So, nothing really new here. I just can confirm that my preference goes to the original one.

Two unreleased tracks here : "Kite" is the opener and a very good TFK song. Rather typical with good guitar work and nice vocals as well, like TFK has produced a lot in their very prolific career. I am less positive about the tribal mood of "Buffalo Man". Strong percussions and a bit funky as well. Should have remained unreleased, IMO.

Another good piece of music is an early recording of their very looooooong "Garden Of Dreams" (almost one hour, form their "Flower Power" album). I admit that the full version is way too long but this one is probably too short. But if I had to chose between the two, I would say that the short one (actually an intro of the whole) would have my preference.

This is a record which can only be of interest to TFK die-hard fans. Some good tracks (three) in either pre- or post-released version makes it appealing to these fans. Still, this is far to be essential. Two stars.

3 stars When this CD came out, I was curious about how the music looks like even though I have been familiar with the music of The Flower Kings and I did not think that it would differ from the music I had been listening to. This was due to this edition printed only couple of hundreds (around 600 or 700, I forget) of CDs, so I lost my chance enjoying the CD. Due to many pressures from fans, lately this version was available at local CD store. As the promo said, this edition contained six never before released tracks by the Flower Kings.

The CD starts beautifully with "Kite" (7.33) which I presumed it was a left-over from the "Retropolis" album because it's composed in 1985 but was just recorded sometime before 1996. From this song I can draw the line that this is the kind of The Flower Kings music that I had been familiar with and I expect the band would continue with this kind of music. It's composed in medium tempo with stunning guitar work. "Piece Of Nizzimo "(6.30) is recorded live from Uppsala, Sweden on April 5th, 1996. The song contains jamming style demonstrating percussion solo and drums until the song ends. It's quite dynamic as live track and I enjoy it. The only point is that the recording quality is not that good. "The Flower King" (11.45) is my favorite track by Roine Stolt, it has mind-boggling composition especially in its melody and chorus line. I have made a long comment of this track through my other review at this page. I even put the title of my review on Roine Stolt debut album with this chorus line : "We believe in the light we believe in love, every precious little thing. We believe you can still surrender, you can serve the Flower King". It's really a true progressive rock song that is very difficult to challenge by other bands in progressive arena.

"Duke Of Nuke" (5.40) has its roots on combination of jazz music and symphonic which in the middle the music turns into the kind of new age music with some sound effects programming. "Garden Of Dreams Part 1" (7.35) is basically recorded under Flower Power but this time is the demo version. "Buffalo Man" (5.50) concludes this edition with another style that The Flower Kings had never played before, ie. combining symphonic and space psychedelic style plus some grooves. It's a good track, really. I love the interlude part where bass guitar plays dynamically as main rhythm section and guitar takes the lead melody roles. It's very entertaining and uplifting!

Overall, this compilation is highly recommended for the loyal fans of The Flower KJings because it contains excellent compositions. As for newbie, this might be an interesting album as well because The Flower King delivers full stream of progressive music. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW

3 stars This collection by The Flower Kings contains live tracks, alternate takes and some unreleased tracks. It's not a bad collection, but I would not call it essential. Kite is the opening track, and is very typical of The Flower Kings in the late 90's. It's competent prog, and keeps me listening throughout. Piece Of Nizzimo get a lot of flack here for being not much more than an extended percussion solo. Maybe that's all it is, but the exuberance of the band playing around the percussion makes it fun.

The live recording of The Flower King intrigues me. On the surface, it has little to add that other recordings of the song haven't given, but the solo section, for some reason, always brings to my mind Zappa's band. And that's a good thing.

I like the remainder of the album, but the rest of the songs never seem to hold my interest like the first few. This collection is worth picking up if you can find it. But don't go too far out of your way.
