Just about all his musical projects being on pause (No-Man, Henry Fool...), Tim Bowness has put out three excellent solo albums in the last five years and Flowers At The Scene is his new one.

After listening to it a number of times in the last few weeks, I must admit that this one his possibly his best ever (in my humble opinion). It certainly does not represent a major change compared to his recent (and even not so recent) output. Sure, his signature dreamy vocals and mostly mellow music are still very much present on this album. One thing I like about this new one is the absence of sudden mood changes, that appeared on a few of his songs. Sure there are more intense tracks on Flowers At The Scene, but they seem to fit better in the continuity of the record. 

As usual Bowness is supported by a cast of very talented musicians. Also present are a number of famous backing vocalists (Peter Hammill, Kevin Godley, David Longdon) and their contribution is highly appreciable.

Flowers At The Scene will certainly be one of my favorite albums of the year (not only prog albums but any genre of music). Highly recommended!!
