Re: Timo Tolkki to perform Strato/RR songs

Trinity is not good. At all. Just my opinion. Symfonia is decent but that title track is awful (so are the ballads) and the rest of the songs sound like Timo just couldn't shake the Strato writing tradition. It literally sounds more or less like Strato, just with Andre Matos on vox. I Agree,Trinity...

Re: Timo Kotipelto in Ayreon

Start with 01011001 or the Human Equation I get where you're coming from, musically, but I don't think it's a good start lyrically. Especially 01011001. If that's the first album one listens to they'd most likely have no clue what it's about.[/quote Does it matter really? For me it is no big deal. ...

The production is better but many of the songs are old rippoffs of his own! You have Heard it all Before many times.

Avalon II is a result of lack of time.

Two songs in three albums is way to little I think. He is not a main songwriter in Stratovarius.
Could've at least had Timo then. Kotipelto/Kupiainen is the new Lennon/McCartney.
