I never seem to decide whether I like Episode or Visions the most, but I still tend to say Visions, so let it go that way in here, too. As for the song, both Visions and Destiny are in my top 5 when you count every single song I've ever heard! Epics, masterpieces. It was the song Destiny that brought me into metal in the first place. Or the first half of it, which I'd listened to very much, until I got my mom to buy me the album just to be utterly amuzed that the song actually lasts for over 10 minutes - how could any song last?! - and it was the best song, by far, I'd ever heard. I was 13 then. :D The feelings Destiny brought me, still bring, were and are amazing. My (insignificant) arm hair goes up and I get goose bumps in several parts of the song. It's even worse in Visions, since the goose bumps might even last from "That's the price we pay for our selfishness" to the very end, non stop. :I So, actually Visions might be even better than my early favorite. Unreal songs, these two, absolutely amazing.

Well, okay.

Fright Night: Black Night
- The youthful attitude comes out best on this song, and on Future Shock which is about as good but just not quite. ;) Other very good ones are Fright Night and Darkness; couldn't decide whether to choose Black Night or Darkness to be the best on the album. Fright Night would be, although it's too close to Helloween - Halloween. A plagiarism, even.

Twilight Time: Out of the Shadows
- Pretty clear choise for me, although The Hands of Time is the other really good song on the album and pretty close to OotS in my book.

Dreamspace: Hold on to Your Dream
- A great, uplifting song which I think somehow is like created to Kotipelto's voice. I'd wish to hear it live someday... again. :) Also We Are the Future and why not Chasing Shadows are extremely good, too.

Fourth Dimension: We Hold the Key
- My clear favorite off the album. Very bombastic. Also Against the Wind and Twilight Symphony rock.

Episode: Babylon
- Again, surprisingly clear favorite. It's a very Rainbow-ish song, but anyway it stands on its own and I like it very much. The "I'm free!" part followed with solos are one of those best moments in Stratovarius music. Other really good ones are of course Father Time, Night Time Eclipse and Forever. A great album - maybe the greatest?

Visions: Visions (Southern Cross)
- And maybe not since this baby was born the next year. Spectacular! The title track might quite possibly be the best song there is! The first and the last three tracks are all masterpieces, especially Coming Home.

(Visions of Europe: Twilight Symphony)
- The guitar solos! <3 Oh and the drum solo ain't bad in Holo Solos either. :D

Destiny: Destiny
- "The title track might quite possibly be the best song there is!" is true here as well. A great album, Anthem of the World could also make it to Strato top 10.

Infinite: Mother Gaia
- This epic easily takes the moniker of the best song in Infinite album. Other very great ones are Infinity and Celestial Dream.

(Intermission: Falling into Fantasy)
- Pretty hard to decide. No super songs here. Will My Soul Ever Rest in Peace? could as well be the best.

Elements, Pt. 1: Elements
- Elements is my fave, one of the most epic songs there are. Also kudos to their greatest instrumental IMO, Stratofortress, as well as to the sickly high Find Your Own Voice and those other epics, Soul of a Vagabond and Fantasia.

Elements, Pt. 2: Liberty
- This and Alpha & Omega are clearly the best tracks on the album. Also Season of Faith's Perfection and I'm Still Alive are great - I'd love to hear the latter live!

Stratovarius: United
- The most superior winner of them all. Other great ones? Fight!!! and The Land of Ice and Snow. Also Back to Madness and Götterdämmerung (Zenith of Power) are masterpieces in their own, scary way. :P

(Revolution Renaissance: Last Night on Earth)
- 'Twas a hard choise. A solid album overally, but no very great songs. Born Upon the Cross, Angel and Glorious Divine come close at least. Remember: this is just an imaginary review because this music DON'T EXIST! Errm... well, Kiske vocals on the actual album. o/

Polaris: Emancipation Suite (Part I: Dusk)
- Masterpiece. This, the second part, King of Nothing and Forever Is Today are the peak of three (four).

Two bolded songs because I absolutely can't decide. :music:

I can't choose an Album and a song, and i'm too lazy to write all songs from all albums :lol: ... but not the Stratovarius(2005).

Anyway.. I still can't Install the Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction =(, I want to play it.

If i had to choose just one I had to say Infinite and Glory of the world.

But also:

Visions - Visions
Destiny - Anthem of the world

Heck, that's tough. Maybe Visions and Night Time Eclipse or S.O.S., but this changes all the time. I've loved so many different Stratovarius songs in different ways over the years.
