I never listened to the album before, because I didn't start listening to Stratovarius until around...Nemesis release, I think... anyways, now that I'm listening to it all the way through, I actually kind of like it??

It's alright. I'd give it a 7 out of 10. Still my least favorite and I probably have a few complaints against some of the songs that you can still find on this forum under that one post where I reviewed every song.

Future Shock 96 > Future Shock 89, agree or no?

Oh totally agree. Future Shock 89 is one of the worst songs on Fright Night, in my opinion. There’s some songs where Tolkki’s singing sounds better but that one just made it sound like he was really struggling.

It's pretty sad to admit but even after listening to Fright Night about 6 or 7 times (I generally need 2 listens), I can't seem to remember how the songs go, except Future Shock thanks to the 96 version and then I just remember the "fright night" sung in the title song. Ofc if I start listening to it I remember the songs a bit but not, let's say, at the moment.
But in the end I find it cool to hear the tremendous evolution from album 1 to 4 and then steadily getting more technical and each album having its particularities after that.

Their growth is so tremendous as a band since Fright Night. I agree though, I don't remember anything specific besides Future Shock for the same reasons. I remember liking Fire Dancer a bit; it was a decent instrumental.

It's a horrible album, but I still cherish it as the origin of Stratovarius. Other than Tolkki, it has zero relevance to the band's legacy.

Which is worse: Fright Night or the self titled Stratovarius album?

Fright Night, no contest. The self-titled gets a lot of hate, and even the band doesn't like it, but I really like most of the songs on it. They're different, but not horrible. Although United is pretty facepalm-worthy with how dishonest it sounds given the tensions within the band (or maybe not even dishonest - hopeful, but it just never worked out? who knows).

Fright Night just... sucks.

Leave the Tribe is one of the most underrated Stratovarius songs.

Also really missed out by not performing Land of Ice and Snow around Finland's 100th

Leave the Tribe fucking rocks. So does Fight!!! - powerful Stratovarius chorus, just a really energetic tune.

to me the Self title is worse, I very rarely listen to that album.
why I like about Fright Night is the songs are very long, almost kind of prog.
my favorite is Witch Hunt, Darkness is also very good.

When the daaaarkness, eeeeenntersss iiiiinnnnnttttoo yourrrr roooooooomm
