What are your fave FK epics?

Postby miamiscot » 01 Jul 2014, 19:00

Being new to the greatness of The Flower Kings the first thing I noticed was that their epics (songs ten minutes or longer, as opposed to Chris Squire's definition of an epic being over 15 minutes) were the real draw. The songwriting seems better and the musical ideas simply overflowing. I like a lot of their shorter songs too, but it appears that the best stuff finds its way into the epics. So what are your favorites? Keep in mind that there are 34 of them (including The Flower King LP, which has three; Garden Of Dreams, which is 18 individual tracks; and Too Late For Tomatoes, which is a bonus track.) That's a lot of music to digest!!! So three months into my Flower Kings fandom I submit my Top 10 epic FK tracks:

1) Love Supreme
2) The Truth Will Set You Free
3) Stardust We Are
4) Numbers
5) One More Time
6) Monsters And Men
7) I Am The Sun, Part One
8) Love Is The Only Answer
9) Garden Of Dreams
10) Road To Sanctuary

So am I wrong to omit Devil's Playground? Or Tower One? Or Big Puzzle?

Great work!

But for 10-min+ songs, my top would be completely different! ;)

Please go here for ranking 15-min+ songs...
