"The Secret of My Success" is the Cadillac Kings' fourth album for 33 Records and coincides with the band's fifteenth anniversary as one of the UK's top blues & roots acts. Recorded and mastered at Luton's Hat Factory by Grammy nominated engineer Mat Collis, the new 14 track album features another ten originals from the pen of Mike Thomas ("the wittiest blues lyricist this side of the Atlantic, Louis Jordan lives!" - Blues in the Northwest). All blues and R&B bases are given a new lease of life on this cd, from West Coast swing to Louisiana Swamp pop, from New Orleans rhumbas to accordion rockers, by way of a healthy dose of Bo Diddley and Jimmy Reed.

There are a few artists out there that, without trying to change the world, succeeded in accomodating the old recipes to the present day. In the domain of Progressive rock, The Flower Kings is the perfect example. Following a path not unsimilar to Spock's Beard's, the swedish band led by guitarist Roine Stolt achieved to leave its mark in the middle of the Nineties, accompanying the rebirth of Progressive rock. It remains on top of the genre nowadays. It is no surprise then if, after having paid tribute to most of the giants of the Golden Seventies, the artists of today tend to care about that second generation as well. That's how the Musea label and the Colossus fanzine created an album in four CDs, tailor-made for the excellency of The Flower Kings: "A Flower Full Of Stars - A Tribute To The Flower Kings".

Adam & Eve is the eighth studio album by the progressive rock band The Flower Kings. A Japanese edition contained an extra disc which includes the bonus tracks from The Rainmaker bonus disc (the first six tracks), as well as three songs recorded during the Space Revolver sessions. The album has the only appearance of Pain of Salvation's Daniel Gildenlöw as a full-time band member (he appeared on both Unfold the Future and Meet the Flower Kings as a guest) and is the last album with the drummer Zoltan Csörsz before his first departure (he later appeared on The Sum of No Evil). The album cover illustration was made by Argentine artist Ciruelo Cabral.

Sweden's The Flower Kings represent the finer elements of progressive rock as they artfully expound upon the early-'70s, much beloved British Canterbury Scene amid dashes of psychedelic rock and to a lesser extent, jazz fusion. With this 2000 release, the musicians continue their forward thinking ways, as they touch upon disparate elements amid complex arrangements and tenacious ensemble work along with the occasional nod to contemporary jazz, thanks to multi-instrumentalist Ulf Wallander's tasty soprano saxophone work.

The idea isn't bad, the result is rather convincing, and the added incentive is enough to make The Road Back Home a worthy addition to a Flower Kings fan's collection, but do read on, because you should know what you're getting. This two-CD set is a compilation album – a theme compilation album, in fact…

Another stroke of genius. Vastly different from their darker and highly melodic Paradox Hotel and a nod to the jazz of Space Revolver, the happiness of Stardust we are, and the positive melody-writing of Adam and Eve. This album completely kicks out their tendencies to make an album-flow with short songs, intermissions and interludes…

It’s a lot of old country and a lot of metal stuff,” Johnston tells The Boot. “We’re really into Pantera, Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, but we’re also equally influenced by Garth Brooks and Keith Whitley, Don Williams, the songwriting side of those kind of things - the way they told stories. Each of the tracks on Bury Me in My Boots has at least one member of the Cadillac Three among its writers; co-writers include well-known tunesmiths such as Jerrod Niemann, Jesse Frasure, Jimmy Robbins and Luke Laird, among others. Following the success of their eponymous debut disc, the guys found it important to spend time picking their very best songs - songs that fit together and can play one after the other but are also “true and real to us,” as Johnston puts it.

Danny Leigh explores the elemental drama of the boxing movie. For over 120 years, boxing and film have been entwined and the fight film has been used to address powerful themes such as redemption, race and corruption. Film writer Leigh examines how each generation's fight films have reflected their times and asks why film-makers from Stanley Kubrick to Martin Scorsese have returned time and again to tales of the ring. Interviewees include former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis, Rocky director John G Avildsen and Thelma Schoonmaker, editor of Raging Bull.
