Lets talk about something more positive...

Post by Star_Ocean » Sat Jun 07, 2008 8:11 pm

With all of the hate going around, I think we should talk about more positive things! I don't know about the rest of you, but I prefer to keep things positive during negative times.

So, to anybody, what's your favorite song on each Stratovarius CD (you can add any solo records the band members did, also, just for fun :) ).

Personally, I'd go like this:

Stratovarius:

Fright Night - Witch-Hunt
Twilight Time - The Hills Have Eyes
Dreamspace - 4th Reich
Fourth Dimension - Twilight Symphony, Galaxies
Episode - Babylon
Visions - Forever Free
Destiny - Destiny
Infinite - Millenium, Glory of the World (the best Strato song ever, in my opinion)
Elements, Pt. 1 - Soul of a Vagabond
Elements, Pt. 2 - Awaken the Giant
Stratovarius - Leave the Tribe

Kotipelto:

Waiting for the Dawn - Travel Through Time, Knowledge and Wisdom
Coldness - Seeds of Sorrow
Serenity - Serenity, King Anti-Midas (the two best Kotipelto songs next to Knowledge and Wisdom, in my opinion)

Timo Tolkki (including RR):

Classical Variations and Themes - Lord of the Rings
Hymn to Life - Father
Saana - The Letter
New Era - Heroes

Fright Night - don`t like that album
Twilight Time - Hands of Time
Dreamspace - Hold on to your dream
Fourth Dimension - We hold the key
Episode - Tomorrow
Visions - Black Diamond
Destiny - Destiny
Infinite - Celestial dream
Elements - Papilon
Stratovarius - Just carry on maybe, but dislike the whole album.

Other staff... didn`t listen that much to choose favorites. Not too much diversity, as always in metal and all kinds of modern popular music. Maybe "Are you the one" from Tolkki album (don`t remember which one) is touching)) a good song.

Very interesting topic, thought. First of all I like to say that all of these Strato albums have many good songs. It's very hard to say wich are the bests. But I think it's something like this.. :)

Fright Night - Fright Night & Darkness
II/Twilight Time - Hands Of The Time & Twilight Time
Dreamspace - Dreamspace & Hold On To Your Dream
Fourth Dimension - We Hold the Key & Against The Wind
Episode - Season Of Change & Night Time Eclipse
Visions - Visions & Forever Free
Destiny - 4000 Rainy Nights & SOS
Infinite - Million Light Years Away & Millennium
Intermission - When The Night Meets The Day & Will My Soul Ever Rest In Peace
Elements 1 - Soul of a Vagabond & Eagleheart
Elements 2 - Dreamweaver & I Walk To My Own Song
Stratovarius - Back To Madness & The Land Of Ice And Snow

Tolkki:

Classical Variations and Themes - Death Of The Swan & Soldier´s Prayer
Hymn to Life - Are You The One & Hymn To Life
New Era - Last Night On Earth & Revolution Renaissance

Kotipelto:

Waiting for the Dawn - Lord Of Eternity & Beaty Has Come
Coldness - Around & Snowbound
Serenity - Mr. Know It All & Last Defender

I like these. It's so fucking hard to say wich are best but I think it is something like this. Maybe it is weird but I don't dislike any Strato songs :roll: At least every song is something what I can listen even if it is not best or great or something.. :wink:

such topics are as old as this forum. :lol: But, anyways, it's always fun, and it's better than to participate in speculations, bashings and cheap propaganda.

So...

Fright Night - Fright Night
Twilight Time - Out Of The Shadows, followed by Twilight Time
Dreamspace - Chasing Shadows
Fourth Dimension - Against The Wind, followed by Twilight Symphony
Episode - probably Night Time Eclipse and Father Time
Visions - (the whole album is just too good to pic a single best song)
Destiny - Destiny
Infinite - Hunting High & Low
Intermission - many cool songs; When The Night Meets... and It's A Mystery
Elements Pt.1 - Soul Of A Vagabound
Elements Pt.2 - Alpha & Omega
Stratovarius - Fight!
