I like the look of both the new RR album and this new Strato album. Great new beginnings for both bands in my opinion

That's true. And I don't miss the lily. I mean, this new logo looks amazing!
Indeed. I love it.

If anyone cares: I made a Wikipedia Entry for the Album.

cool! I just checked it. I was the one who listed "Polaris" in the discography, before that was still listed "King of Nothing". Btw, in the wiki article of strato somebody listed "Stratovarius II" but I really don't consider it to be part of the main discography of Stratovarius 'cause it's Twilight Time w/a different name. Should we remove it?

Also, in the diagram of releases, it's listed that strato has 118 singles :S wtf?!


well, that's all, ciao xD

I sugested that they should merge those two Albums together.

I also noticed that. A bit strange. I mean, they released at least one single for every album until now, but 118 is a bit strange.

Okay, I don't think it is a good idea to put this into the wikipedia page of the band.

And I've actually merged the "II" and "Twilight Time" pages.

First, "Stratovarius II" is an important part of the bands history, and therefore should always be mentioned in their discography.
And second, if you want to think it that way, "Twilight time" is a renamed "Stratovarius II", not opposite.

You could as well say that Twilight Time is the corrected name, since it came later. If it's the same album, I don't see why keep both listed.

They are the same album. And two Wikipedia pages for one album just is very stupid. Like I said, I merged them together. There is now 1 articel called "Twilight Time (album)" which contains information about both albums.

I'm impressed with the Polaris cover. Great artwork, amazing logo and no more Fleur-de-Lis ! : D

I mean, it's a very beautiful symbol... but it represents the French Monarchy...doesn't it?! ._. Not appropriete!

I think Tolkki said once that the Illy was a sign of freedom to him.

I understood a little wrong, but is it any wonder if you look at the time I posted my message :D
You are right about listing two different pages for them, there's no point. One page with info of them both is enough. Yet I still think that "Stratovarius II" should always be considered as a part of main discography.

Pretty nice cover, it pretty much screams "TT does not play on this album". :D
(not in any negativiness towards anyone)

I was just thinking, when I was entering the site that "they could change the layout at somepoint, maybe so that it fits the new album...though they haven't released the cover yet."

It's awesome that life's awesomeness just survives on and on, more than a week already.

I think both new albums do just that, I think the new Stratovarius album looks like a new beginning and the new Revolution Renaissance album also looks like a new beginning.

I'm happy for both parties.
