It's something I've wanted for a long time but until Timo gets his shit together I don't want it to happen

I don't think he could even play or sing well enough to justify it anyway

In Timo Tolkki's case, I think he psyched himself out by repeatedly thinking that he can't top his songs from the golden era, and achieved a self-fulfilling prophecy. Also, I think the fact that strat ...

I don't believe age has anything to do with this, and I'll use Stratovarius anytime as an example of a band which defies the age argument.

I'm not simply disappointed by the change in style. I think that even in the chosen style, Sonata does a mediocre job. It's just a product of middle-aged complacency.

sometimes I think this line-up tries too hard to distance themselves from the sound of the classic strato era, like is wrong to do it, personally I don't think so.


Very well said.

Tolkki wrote a song called "Dangerous" for Stratovarius. This song was demo for Avalon, but Frontiers didn't accept it for the album.
