A very good friend put "Forever", "Season of change" and "Celestial dream" in a tape knowing they were a MUST according to my musical taste. That was back in 1999.
After listening I went straight to the store to buy "Infinite" and so on.

I was a HUGE children of bodom fan and Janne mentioned Visions album one day. I think this was right in between when Hatebreeder and Follow the Reaper came out so it was between 99-01 So I downloaded some songs, didn't even like it at first because it was too expressive and didn't like the "real" singing. After a while, I gathered the courage to say that I actually like this and I don't care if other people don't like it or think the vocals are "gay". I think it was the first time I listened to and liked a band without any outside influence. I ordered Episode, Visions, Destiny, Fourth Dimension all at once off of fleabay. I've grown up a lot in many different ways since then and now they are my favorite band of all time.

Elements Part 1.

I was in London in 2005 and was picking up a few CD's of bands I wanted to check out. I did'nt know which Stratovarius album to get, so I went for the one which had the best artwork in my opinion. :)

Visions of Europe! Back in 1998, when my father put it in the radio.
Have been addicted to Strato-music ever since then.

Elements Pt 1. I heard Janne from Bodom playing a medley and one bit in particular caught my attention. A few questions later and I found it was a song called Eagleheart. It's still my favourite Strato song.

I heard "Black Diamond" in Finnish chart program in -97, and bought the "Visions" the very day it was published.

I have to say Fourth Dimension because Against the Wind was the first Stratovarius song I heard! However, in terms of CDs, INFINITE was the first complete StratoAlbum I listened to. :)

Elements part 1 is the first what I listened, but Polaris is the first what I have my own. I think Polaris is the best album!!

Infinite was the first album I got, purely because I'd heard Stratovarius were a cool band. I was like 'wow, this stuff is great'.

My friend then lent me Episode. I was like 'HOLY SHIT THIS IS FUCKING AMAZING' and have been hooked ever since :D

Destiny was the one I bought first, but I think I had heard more from Elements pt1.

Anyway I had heard lots of stuff before I bought any of the albums.

Destiny. I think it was around 2000, when I also became a Maiden fan. Shortly after that I bought Infinite and Brave New World 8)

Stratovarius, back in 2005... bad start Dx
But well, I came to it by Black Diamond, a "Visions" song, but the first full album was Stratovarius
