Re: Difficult question: The worst strato song(s) for you

Thin Ice. Never got its psychedelic feel. Too artistic? The actual music tracks are all better. I like this thing in, say, Aphrodite's Child, but I think it's really off-the-mark in a Strato album. Also, Magic Carpet Ride is a watered-down version from Rainbow - Gates of Babylon, in my opinion. Not ...

Re: How good Dreamspace is?

The most obscure, deepest and possibly least plastic of all the Strato albums. Just a great, personal landscape. And Tolkki's ambition, lungs and voice are so huge - back then he was, like, THE most anxious metal vocalist I ever heard. Somehow, I've never gotten the psychedelia in Thin Ice... I like...

Re: Has Malmsteen copy BlackDiamond in his new album Relentless?

Andall his stuff has always been very neoclassical, so that the classical influences really show. It would be nice to see some results of a research which shows whatever Yngwie has plagiarized or loaned, whether by accident or not. I think there might be hundreds of compositions involved. :)

Whoever came up with the idea of ending Destiny with Visions's ending on Polaris tour? I almost choked in the gig, realizing it immediately.
