Re: Heavy EYE in matias and t. Tolkki. my veredict

I somewhat agree with that. Although I think Tolkki was far more skilled back in 1992 than Kupiainen. Tolkki is just so rusty on everything he does nowadays.

Re: New Stratovarius drummer (your thoughts or preferences)

Lassila would bring the lost, true spirit of Stratovarius back to the band! Shame he got kicked by Tolkki.

Re: We want Lassila to be the new drummer.

I agree, Lassila back to Stratovarius. The quality of their music started to drop when he was kicked by Tolkki.

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

Well this whole discussion here is all about taste of music. Some prefer apple and others pear. There is no one right answer. And who cares if Tolkki doesn't consider his vocals in early albums good, as long as the listeners do. Well I give you that on Fright Night he really didn't have the techniqu...

They have contributed alot to music but mostly during Tolkki-singing era. First three albums are so incredibly unique and good.

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

Yeah I think Tolkki should had thought two times before even recruting Kotipelto to Stratovarius. :)
Sure they made shittloads of money but the stuff during Kotipelto era has been very traditional power metal and hasn't brought much new to the genre. Well Fourth Dimensions is okay though.

Re: How far would Stratovarius had gone with Tolkki on vocals?

I think they would have gone very far. Slowly building up their fanbase with dark infused atmosphere would had done fruit sooner or later. Afterall, Stratovarius is mainly famous for Tolkki's guitar wizardry.

Re: How good Dreamspace is?

Dreamspace is best album of Stratovarius, Twilight Time is second best. Atmosphere is so awesome on both albums. No need to fear Kotipelto's squeaking vocals ruining the feeling. I think the best songs from Dreamspace are probably 4th Reich, Shattered, Dreamspace, Thin Ice and Reign of Terror.

I love Twilight Time most, since it's so balanced album. All songs are good no filling songs at all. Can't even blame Metal Frenzy as one since its just Tolkki's composing style to make one instrumental/album. :)
