Defenitely Gypse In Me for me.
Kick-ass Keys, kick-ass Guitar-Solo and a great old-school Strato melody :)

I put down my vote next to United. It is my present favourite on the album, and there's a big chance, that it will remain number 1, though Gypsy in Me was a very big rival.

Leave The Tribe

It's just so fu*king great! :headbang:
So you children of the world, listen to what I say
If you want a better place to live in, spread the words today
Show the world that love is still alive, you must be brave
Or you children of today are children of the grave

I agree with you. That´s why I voted for Fight!!! That would be awesome to hear live. It´s so headbanging song. :headbang:

But I also like United and Götterdämmerung much, so Fight!!! is not the best song possibly. :)

not easy choice, as usual in such cases, but... Leave The Tribe

Back to Madness. Absolutely fantastic song. Lots of classical influences, which to me is one of the hallmarks of Strato's style. And just beautiful arrangements.

Zenith of Power. The intro (and outro) keyboard is damn creepy. The first half of the song is very powerful, with a bitchin, and quite catchy guitar solo. And the second half, with all the different layers of sound just building up... very mezmeringly awesome. Definately have to listen to the song multiple times to catch everything that's going on.

You're damn right man!
I choosed it too.... but followed closely by Just Carry On;)
I also think that The land Of Ice & Snow is really great ballad, they played it yesterday (the 23 sept. in montreal) and it was amazing live!
United rules too.... live! :D
I think this album is excellent, all the songs... except maybe Maniac Dance I like less but it remains a nice song..:P
Some might say we are cold
Don't believe all that's been told

Same for me. Leave the Tribe is a very close second, though..

And United is bloody brilliant. :D

Maniac Dance is Still my Fav :D
Back to Madness a close Second, and ZOP, is third.

This album is terrific! It IMO is better than the Elements. The Sound&Music is very good.
