Seffi Starshine I am speechless.. My mind is completely blown by this legendary progressive rock masterpiece of beyond epic proportions. The Flight of the Crown Hawk ranks all the way up there with the greatest albums by progressive rock legends such as Genesis and Yes, and it is truly a life changing experience. I will cherish this album for the rest of my life. 12/10 candy hearts <3 Favorite track: The Drift of the Nautiloid.

TheEliteExtremophile Blending space rock, prog rock, and prog metal, this is a great album. It's full of unexpected twists and turns. The production is a bit murky, but that's forgivable.

Turbine cutting through the fog We are the Shapes in the Clouds I turn down the magazine What a way to waste the world Speeding forward lying back Looking out Taking in Speeding forward lying back Speeding forward lying back Part of the machine And I start to disconnect My soul is flying free Though the coordinates are set A plastic earth through clouded eyes So very far away Straight through this reality My mind it separates Turbine cutting through the fog We are the Shapes in the Clouds I turn down the magazine What a way to waste the world Speeding forward lying back Looking out Taking in Speeding forward lying back Speeding forward lying back I’m fading my time out I’m biding my time now I’m fading my time out (Stuck in a seat don’t wanna meet those people) I’m biding my time now I’m fading my time out (Stuck in a seat don’t wanna meet those people) I’m biding my time now (Aeronautic, claustrophobic, schizophrenic) Breaking through the storm And I’m Floating on the clouds Closer to the sun Tearing through the sky And I’m Running on the wing Closer to the sun

Woodworm eating out my soul Earthy feeling I can't control Forced to ride the Crown Hawk from its nesting ground Soars into the sky with it’s magical bird crown (The early bird catches the worm) (Bird, an informal term for a member of the female genre) ‘cause I'm flying the Crown Hawk Soaring through the sky Swooping in the mountains Getting so high Going at warp factor nine And he's running out of time Seeing the world through a pair of different eyes Pulling out of a sonic nosedive We survive! (The most yolks found in a single birds egg is nine) (Hummingbirds fly) (A list of flightless birds include swallows, swans, and fat girls) (Have you heard about the bird?) ‘cause I'm flying the Crown Hawk Soaring through the sky Swooping in the mountains Getting so high

The streets are full of mist or could it be my eyes? Was it just a dream I had Or a message from the skies? Deep dark planes of nothing I live Landscapes drained of energy Dream of a life I might forgive Fight my worst enemy There were noises like a storm Coming from a distant land And there were voices in the darkness That I couldn’t understand Then a light burst from the sky And I didn’t feel again But I won’t forget the winds That Took Away The Pain Each day that I counted since the day she shot the gun Life feels like a sleepless coma Dark space in which to run Hands of ice that freeze my blood Lead down a silver corridor Lights that blind my conscious for good How will I stay the same? There were noises like a storm Coming from a distant land And there were voices in the darkness That I couldn’t understand Then a light burst from the sky And I didn’t feel again But I won’t forget the winds That Took Away The Pain

Ready to relax Time can elapse As we fall into sleep Into distant sleep I can fly to my mind’s horizon Distant space lies beyond I dream a fantastic vision Of a planet of my own I can see everything I can hear anything I’m the reason why I’m here Never knowing where I’ll go Colours in my mind always glow Always returning with nothing to fear Nothing to fear Now I’m in this state Running late I carry a land with me It’s all I can see I can see everything I can hear anything I’m the reason why I’m here Never knowing where I’ll go Colours in my mind always glow Always returning with nothing to fear Reoccuring Dream That I see In my sleep

Will you tell your children where plastic and metal collide Who decided that the refuge of shadows hiding inside Let me prove to you what, what they tell me Cockroaches in the mastery of poverty Cockroaches Have A Nice Day (Have a nice day) Take away of many survive them Will you tell your children the refuge of the shadows Who can I blame for yet the wave crashes upon you The power of hiding sex from ourselves is where plastic and metal collide The problem throws me left and right and from and to Cockroaches Have A Nice Day (Have a nice day) Take away of many survive them Let me prove to you just what the voices tell me A finished person is that someone else is driving

He had drifted five thousand miles into the ocean And he knew that this was a one way journey He plunged through the abyss To incomprehensible depths His body impervious to the pressure He sank deeper and deeper As his journey reaches it’s end He hits the bed of the trench with a mighty thud The water now infused with sulphur Engulfs his body As he forms a union With the deepest blue

In a small town, not too different perhaps from the one where you live, begins the first adventure. It’s 2009, and your friend just joined a rock band. You hate the songs. You decide to pick up your guitar, and as you sit on a plastic chair in the back corner of the garage (where you’ve spent the past 4 years procrastinating), you record an ostentatious prog rock version of their hit single, and upload it to MySpace.

You don’t want him to find out that it was you, so you send it under a fictitious band name, but you haven’t got one. You pick up the nearest magazine, flick through and pick two random words which you then type into the computer – “Vinyl Dial”.

This album is everything that happened following that moment.
