I agree, I don't like that albun, neither sounds like Stratovarius!Rage1979 wrote:Fright night is the worst album
It seems a trash metal band
This is really sad. Tolkki wrote a few of his best songs when he was doing the vocals.Empathica1928 wrote:I like nearly every song from the time TK joined the band up to now, so most of the songs I dislike are from the era of Tolkki's vocals... but 030366 is absolutely the worst song for me.
Well I don't dislike all of them. I agree that a few of his best songs were written during the time of him singing, but for me at the same time there were also a lot of 'bleh' songs.Ragehead91 wrote:This is really sad.

Although I have a different opinion about all of these, I can still find a pattern here, and I perfectly understand. Especially Back to Madness of these is very wrong in my mind, but I can imagine this song either strikes the first time you hear it, grows on you or just is the worst song of the album because of its huge absurdness... not that Stratovarius-material. I think that's my second favorite on the s/t, only second to godly United.Iou1Soul wrote:Out of the ones I actually have a song I really don't like on
Visions: The Kiss of Judas (too 80s hard rock for my liking)
Elements Pt. 1: Papillon
Elements Pt. 2: Awaken the Giant
Stratovarius: Back to Madness
Polaris: Falling Star
True, and the better half in my opinion.icecab21 wrote:i just think of hit songs as the ones we the fans pick as standouts. forever is today is a example as its the most popular song from the album, even though the band has not promoted it for some reason. i'm still not sure why they don't play any lp songs in the concerts yet lp wrote half the album.
Easy to swallow. No structular surprises. "Normal" lenght (like, not 00:07 or 25:13 for example). It's clear to follow. Musically. All this, of course, musically. It's more "common" type of music, the one "hit-quality", "radio friendly", "commercial" song even the usually more demanding bands want to release every now and then. Other Strato songs like that, but to even larger degree, are HHAL, Eagleheart and I Walk to My Own Song. Catchy, pretty simple. Songs for the masses. You know what I'm talking about. >< The Kiss of Judas is similar style, only with a bit more keyboard harmonies on top of it. And of course lyrically it goes deeper than possibly any of the aforementioned "hit" trio.Ragehead91 wrote:Kiss of Judas and hit song? What are you talking about? Kiss of Judas is as demanding as any other Stratovarius song.
My thoughts exactly. When I can pretty easily say it's the worst album on Stratovarius' discography in general, I still like it. A lot. It's their first album, and they were only searching for their style. That's a pretty good first album if you ask me, a lot of balls and attitude. And about the first pretty familiar power metal album outside Germany, yes. That's definitely their Walls of Jericho or Heavy Metal Breakdown right there.stratodan1990 wrote:
Yeah, and as for Fright Night, I disagree with alot of people, I feel it''s what started them, not to mention they basically began 'power metal' with this album (well, except Helloween and some others) but you get me.
