"Flowers For The Gathering had been one of Ikon's greatest achievements, having earned a cult status among goth fans. Rightly so, since this album was one of the strongest releases ever, in this particular genre, that is.I usually hate to use the term "classic", but this album is the exact definition of a classic/monumental/influential recording-something that stood the test of time,for sure.Therefore,not only I find Echozone's move into re-issuing some Ikon gems, a justified is my belief that recordings such as these, that helped to shape this scene,should be made widely available, thus introducing a whole new generation of fans to the sound of elder masterpieces."
