9 songs on the album and one of them is three parted Shocked
This means Strato is really going progressive. Which is good BTW.

I would like to see some songwriting credits too.

Oh and more songs about skies and mountains Neutral

The first thing I said when I saw this was: 'HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN, HEBBEN!!!' wich means 'GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE, GOTTA HAVE!!! in Dutch!!!' Laughing

EDIT: If someone is going to edit the Strato Wikipedia page, can you please add this bandphoto on there too? The one with TT is really outdated.

Edit II: It seems we will be getting this live version of Against the Wind on The Darkest Hours single. I'm curious if the mistakes TK did on 1:06 in this video will be on the single version as well.

I'd like to know the idea behind the cover. Why is the Polaris UFO-star thing in there?

It's a beautiful cover btw.

Artwork looks great! I'm also curious about the star and why its there, seeming as though its appeared on the last two albums.

I like this cover too! No cavities! See!
And you have learned your lesson right? You know better now, right? But even if you learned your lesson do you believe that you could have done a better cover yourself? No I don't think so. Have a nice day! Smile

Seems that the star was arriving to the "earth" if you see the artwork from Polaris, and now has landed and it's part of us, of the nature, of the world.
A lot of concept in the artwork from Polaris and Elyssium. Cause it represents the "new" band too, the new Stratovarius and how they are approaching the message to us.
Fantastic artwork, looks really fantastic. Damn, how I love this band.
