In my opinion more guitars OK. Less keyboards? Not a chance.

That was quite good also. But still I loved Infinite the most. Sounded so perfectly blended together.

Haha! I mean that keyboards are nice. But the Stratovarius sound is not something with too much keyboards and stuff. Stratovarius always was a guitar driven band. With good atmosphere keyboards by Jens. But I feel on Polaris that they overused they keys a little bit.

Yes they can! It's not that much on Polaris. But I hope it won't be more in the future.

Btw, you have to know that I really respect Jens, he is the best keyboarder I know. So no offense! :wink:

Now I have get to know Second Sight better and I love it!

I think Matias is a very talented songwriter. He is young and I hope that he will have inspiration to make a music for a long time to the future!

Infinite have now many of my favorite songs, but visions is still my favorite :) But I agree we need more quitar!

I really like the song. I would have rather had that on the album than boring shit like Winter Skies.

And please, more guitar in the next album. With so many songs seemingly starting with a keyboard, it gets really friggin' boring. Not to mention that the keyboards in the songs are pretty much the same keyboards we've been hearing since Episode. It gets old.

Agreed. Winter Skies is atrocious.

Also agree about the guitar part and that there are too much keyboards. But I have no problem with how the keyboards are done. There are just plain too much on this album.

The song already has guitar for 90 percent of it.
