Top 5:

Episode (this though being my all-time favourite!)
Visions
Intermission
Stratovarius II/Twilight Time
Stratovarius

Others:

Infinite
Elements pt1
Fourth Dimension
Dreamspace
Elements pt2
Destiny
Fright Night

I think it's not possible get a top album list...
there are different albums I like in the same way...
So:

1st level:
Visions, 4th Dim, Episode, Destiny

2nd
Infinite, Dreamspace, Twilight Time

3rd
Intermission, Elements pt. 2

4th
Elements part 1

5th
FN and Stratovarius

note: 5th level do not mean that I dislike those albums

1) Episode
2) Elements pt1
3) Visions
4) Infinite, 4th Dimension
5) Twilight Time, Destiny, Elements pt2
6) Stratovarius

I haven't heard Dreamspace or Fright Night yet, Intermission doesn't really count as an album, I consider it a 'collection' disc, as I do Visions of Europe.

I guess this list is more of a 'how much I listen to this album' one.

I have not even heard the song, though. Webtv cannot access YouTube. I'll ask my son to listen&tell me what he thinks. The title of the song sounds awesome!

I mean Stratovarius-album of course! The R...R... album cannot be the newest as it isn´t released yet. Ever thought about that. ;-)

Haha, right, we played this a thousand of times before, but since the last time is quite some days left behind, I participate. ;-)
Actually, I will never understand why people (and TT *g*) don't like the last album. IMO it's a good piece of rock music, not Stratovarius typical, but really good.

So, my ranking is:

1.)Visions
2.)Episode
3.)Infinite
Stratovarius
5.)Intermission
Destiny
4th Dimension
8.)Elements Pt.2
9.)Elements Pt.1
10.)Dreamspace
Twilight Time
12.)Fright Night

Not true, my friend, not true. ;-)


Btw, for me it's also interesting to see that some of you don't put "Visions" even under the Top5. For me (and I thought for almost every Stratovarius-Fan) "Visions" is simply the outstanding masterpiece of this band, and one of the best albums of all ages.

btw, anymore guesses for RR? I believe RR is RockNRoll like I believe Cheesecake is not fattening! :D

Well after all that guessing (we had an own topic for that, or not?) I would propose to quit all this hick-hack and simply wait. I wouldn't be suprised if TT and the other guys are a little bit nerved with that.

1 ) Visions - 10
2 ) Episode - 10
3 ) Destiny - 9
4 ) Infinite - 9
5 ) Elements P1 - 9
6 ) Fourth Dimension - 7
7 ) Dreamspace - 6
8 ) Intermission - 6
9 ) Elements P2 - 6
10 ) Stratovarius - 4

10 = Amazing
9 = Crazy good
8 = Very good
7 = Good
6 = Okay
5 = Lacking
4 = Kinda lame
3 = Lame
2 = Bad
1 = Really bad
