TFK, because Space Revolver is sufficiently jazzy for cheesy symph prog.

TFKs for me, but I really enjoy Kaipa as well especially the vocals.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

I can't get into Kaipa because of the vocals. TFK for me.

The Flower Kings are currently the only band together with Genesis that I can't listen to a whole album in one shot. The early Kaipa are excellent instead.

I just learned to know both of them. I'm a huge fan of the older Yes (before 90125). Hereby I have to mention the new album of Stolt together with Jon Anderson Invention of Knowlegde, an album Yes should have made with Jon. But making a choice is like saying that something tastes better because it just does. Both bands I like, but Kaipa I fell in love with instantly after hearing Sattyg. I quickly learned to know all the albums, from the darker, beautiful first albums to the overwhelming albums from after 2002. The old and new Kaipa are 2 different bands to me. Furthermore, after the leaving of Roine Stolt, the sound of Kaipa got different. Still beautiful but different. The Flower Kings I can still listen to doing other things, it relaxes me and sounds familiar, a bit like an old friend I haven't seen for a long time. I'm still exploring the Flower Kings, and I'm falling in love with Garden of Dreams and the album the Rainmaker. Kaipa I have to listen to like I'm watching a very good movie, like I'm travelling through unexplored landscapes that I know but don't know and that I want to absorb quickly

What little I have heard from The Flower Kings (the last 2 albums) has left me rather cold... but perhaps I need to hear some of their more classic material. From Kaipa I have their first 3 albums, and they are nice enough, but there's better prog around (despite my expectations, I liked Solo better than the other two... it did sound more mature, I guess). But I got the Kaipa do Capo album (not exactly Kaipa, but a reunion of sorts of original members, including Stolt), and I really liked that one a lot... better than the original 3 albums, and better than Flower Kings last two albums.

This is one poll where I wish there was a "BOTH" option.

I love both!!! Call me a Symph Weenie if you want but they're both incredible.

The Flower Kings by a whisker.
