I like Maniac Dance, too! It's my personal favorite from the album!
Followed by Back to Madness&ZofP.

The Intro of Black Diamond sounds like MegaDs Intro to the album "Killing is my Business" but, so what?

Talking about familiar things:

Just Carry On reminds me of Hold On To Your Dream. Maybe that's the reason why that song is one of my favorites of that album :wink:

Hold On To Your Dream also has the same sorta riff to Paradise, so does Just Carry On remind you of this too? :)

I totally agree if you write over 150 songs in the same style of music tere is bound to be some songs that have similar parts....does this make these songs any less??...heck no....its what makes these songs complete and badass.... :) :)

Well, its Tolkki composing them, and he has his own style, which is reflected in his songs, i am amazed he can change it so much, but some songs sounding like others is unavoidable

It's more the chorus of Just Carry On which reminds me of Hold On To Your Dream Musically but also lyrically.
And no, those similarities don't make the songs any less :wink: Hell, Timo wrote songs for about 15 albums now (incl. his solos)... it still amazes me where he got all that inspiration from! :)

Still (100% IMHO) Hold On to Your Dream is much better than Just Carry On and is one of the best songs in Dreamspace and "You´ll Reach the Final Bend" is perhaps the worst song on the new album. Though I like both albums much. :wink:

There is a song on the new album that has same riffs and at times its equal to Alpha & Omega, I think is just carry on, check it you'll see

Not really, if you mean Last Rites/Loved To Death. Actually the intro of LR/LtD is a variation of (Toccata &) Fugue by Johann Sebastian Bach.
