2007 – Flower Kings – Road Back Home

The new 2CD album contains 27 songs, spanning from 1995 to 2006 and the tracks focus on the most accessible, melodic, groovy or shorter tracks. So less fusion and more melody and moody tracks. All tracks are carefully remixed, quite a few have different solos and some have additional backing vocals. There is even one unreleased track, plus the full version of Genesis’ classic Cinema Show.

The album contains a 20 page booklet with archive photos, comments on each song, recording data and anekdotes by Flower Kings mastermind Roine Stolt. All tracks are remixed, re-arranged, remastered.

This new double album will appeal to many rock fans who are not acquainted with The Flower Kings and who probably can not digest the 20-30-minute tracks and fusion approach on some albums. A whole new market will open up for The Flower Kings. Jonas appears on most of the tracks.
