From The Lotus or Back 2 Te Lotus

Which one you like better?

Back 2Lotus is a winner for me. its a fantatic sonic journey and you can hear

Prince tapping on guitar at 430

From Te Lotus is a bit without structure for my taste.

Love the album but slept on Back 2 the Lotus until a few years ago. Holy smokes...Michael Bland's drums pound on this...I love it.

Back 2 the lotus is great.I wish there was a lyric book for lotus flower album
I know he says something about "polluting the airwaves".

From a lotus flower
Somewhere in the South Pacific corner of my studio
From up in the clouds, the enemy of your seed
Performs a righteous deed
It looks a little gray to the atmosphere
That's been corrupted by the impure
Cleansing all the airways
Don't fret
It's done at this point
Over
Alright
What?
How are the plants?
And the lotus flower
Somewhere in the South Pacific
Corner of my studio

I love both and play them back to back. But Back to the Lotus is longer so I prefer it over From the Lotus. wink

Back to the Lotus was more mysterious and weird
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Need ‘em both, love them both. I could listen to an hour of that kind of playing.

Lotusflower was THE closest he came to releasing a GREAT album this century.
