I've avoided The Flower Kings for years, but on a whim bought Desolation Rose and found that I liked it a lot.  What is your favorite album of theirs?

Definitely the first. I'll never understand all the love for Unfold, actually anything between Space Revolver and TSoNE.

Just got Stardust We Are but have only heard it once. It could perhaps take the place of my current favorite, Space Revolver, but I will reserve judgment until I am more familiar with it.

I have 6 of those albums including the 2 that are getting most votes but I voted Banks Of Eden. Great comeback album with Desolation Rose only a very slightly disappointing follow up ( but still good).

All albums are good. I'll vote for the first one.

The best disc they ever released is Flower Power disc one.  Disc two pales in comparison but even if you prefer to use disc two as a beermat (it really isn't at all bad though) the album is still a 5-star jobby thanks to the genius of Garden of Dreams.

If you want the most consistently brilliant album with no weak points look no further than Space Revolver.
