Favourite Stratovarius Album

Post by stratorobbo » Tue May 09, 2006 9:51 pm

I'm sure there has been one of these before.. but I would like to do another one anyway :)

(Intermission is in there because it has B-sides, and extras)

Visions, and then Episode (japan edition with ultimate super track "When the Night Meets the Day") & Twilight Time. But why the new album isn't there...?

Well that will probably be a contreversial choice.. well from what i have gathered, many find the album their weakest.. I personally think it is a powerful album though, especially luminous, dreamweaver... season of faith's perfection and know the difference are very nice too :)

Visions however.. granted, black diamond and the kiss of judas a good tracks... in my opinion, there are better songs out there - eagleheart, playing with fire, future shock, against the wind, will the sun rise?, twilight symphony oh god i could go on lol.. but i feel visions doesn't have much else to surpass it above the likes of episode, fourth dimension, destiny... but meh
that's my opinion

Episode, as usual, I love that album, and every single song on it. Especially Season Of Change of course.

Forever&Babylon are my favs on that album, but Season of Change is terrific, too! :rvd:

Yes!! C'om BEG and Stratoplayer! bring the house down saying Episode!!!

Babylon is epic, terrific song indeed. And Forever is a clasic, an awesome song. And Stratosphere is...instrumental. Pure magic.

You seem to have totally different opinion than me then. I like only two of those mentioned songs (PWF and TS), the others are either not-so-great or crap.

My fav is Episode, because lots of terrific songs like Season of Change, Eternity 8) , Night Time Eclipse, Speed of Light, When the Night Meets the Day... and the mood on the album is excellent. The only lack on Episode is Will the Sun Rise? of which I don´t like at all.

Definitely Episode.
Then Destiny (that's a really far under-rated album !!!) and Dreamspace.

Visions is a amazing album indeed, but I am a bit bored of it.
Maybe coz I have been listening to it too much.

(btw Twilight Time is really good in my opinion!

(difficult question, coz all the Strato albums are really good)

Best ablum is probably Episode. But my heart is still with Infinite (my first strato album)
I also think that Elements Pt 1 is a really good record. Eagleheart is a GREAT metalsong! I would probably say it is one of the best strato songs.
Forever is on the other hand the best ballad they have made and all the songs on Episode is the best! And from there it has only been good records except from Elements Pt 2.

And by the way... Isn't Episode the first album with almost everyone from todays strat linup? Yup! Thats why it is the best album!
Kpt is teh shit!

I was between Destiny and Dreamspace, but I chose Destiny in the end cause that's my favourite these days...

You don't like Future Shock? :shock: But there is the "true sprit of 80's"! I love it and during these years I've started to like Fright Night's sounds more.

VoE has been blocking my car stereo since last week, but I voted for Elem.II, 'cause A & O, Sofp and Dreamweaver are my favs at the moment... but if you ask again in two months... who can tell? :?

This changes every day, I feel... But I decided to vote for Visions of Europe this time. All the best songs, with the passion of a live performance.

What's this Stratovarius album everyone's talking about?
