Re: Revolution Unfinished

Who knows, what's that?

Re: Amazon Failed me TWICE on getting me Stratovarius's Albums

You can still try www.play.com (they also have a page for US) which is quite reliable (I've ordered around 10 items from there and never had any problem either with the site or the sellers - and I once needed to return something without any problems) and also much cheaper than amazon in some cases (...

Re: Cain's offering has leaked

In some countries downloading is not illegal; sharing is. In any case, even if it's illegal, you can still disagree with copyright laws. And then there's the matter of ownership. Can consumers ever really be owners of the CDs they pay for? EDIT: Btw, if you ever made photocopies of a book, journal ...

Re: Cain's offering has leaked

I think most of the great singers just get better with age Well, that depends. Guys like Hallford, U.D.O. or Coverdale sound still great in the studio but they suck horribly live. Klaus Meine though is an exception. He still sounds great, in studio and live! And that's not just me. It's objective! ...

Re: Better Guitarist

I just voted for Mat, not because I think he's better (as I said, there can be no comparison between them), but to "bring balance to the poll". :P

Let's just say that my ears are more attuned to TT's guitars and prog isn't exactly my style, but that doesn't make Matias a less skillful player!

Re: Better Guitarist

I just couldn't vote. Mattias is a "newbie" compared with TT. I don't mean about his abilities but about his guitar sound in my ears. It's too fresh to be able to compare, don't you think so? :? Like trying to compare Vettel with Schumacher this year when Vettel actually begins his career to the top...

Re: What is your first Stratovarius album what hvae you listened

Mine were "The Chosen Ones" and "Infinite" back in 2001. But the first song was either "Black Diamond" or "Against the Wind", not sure which was really first between them.
And then of course the rest followed :D

Somehow yes. it is somehow similar in terms of variety and style. Yet it is new fresh and definately different. But his works remind of the Tolkkis song writing the most.

I think that the main difference is that everyone thought the band to be called "Stratovarius" while TT thought of it as "Timo Tolkki's Stratovarius"... But that's out of topic already. :)
