What is the best song on the Tour?

Post by GuiHunter » Tue Sep 29, 2009 10:50 am

Hey you guys..... For me the best music from the tour is Legions and second Winter Skies......

How come?

Anyway, they kind of played Visions well the time I saw them. There were no duels, Legions, Father Time or Destiny that time yet though. :( I'm glad the setlist has evolved during the tour though (not to mention for the better). But, well, I also like Twilight Symphony especially live, the solos are so great! Winter Skies is also very nice; sadly the crowd didn't take it as well as these eagleheartz and huntings. Although I can honestly say I think Eagleheart is one hell of a live song though, I like it a lot live! The same goes with good ol' Speed of Light. Hard to say which is the best though. I can give a go for the worst though: Will the Sun Rise? Never a strong song, and it's pretty horrible live.

Kiss of Judas was always boring and sluggish studio, but live is a whole different story.

You expect me to choose between Father Time and Black Diamond (just to name two) which is better? That alone gives me enough trouble...

I still don't went to this new tour, but I saw some videos on YouTube, the set list is good, but I missed songs like We hold the key!
BTW, I hope to hear Destiny live here in Brazil too :)

I Just hope they'll play Coming Home when I see'em, no doubt they'll play my other favourite songs since they are on the current set list, but, come on, Coming Home! They quite never play it and it such a great masterpiece!

!

That AND a big epic on the set would be a dream come true! I consider We Hold the Key being a major 'epic song' on its own, it's massive, but not as massive or long as Visions, Destiny, Elements, Emancipation, stuff. Actually hearing any song of these, except Visions for the fourth time, would be the greatest experience! And Forever Is Today and Father Time still need to be in the set until I've heard them! :x :lol:

Not that I dislike Visions or anything... Easily on my top 5 of all the songs I know.

I think this topic it's a bit early for some of us, I still have to wait a week and a half to post my opinion here :D

I heard some video/bootleg and my fave at the moment is Winter Skies as well! Love that piano break and Timo's performance! I guess it's the first time Jens using piano in a Strato-song....

I guess in "season" there's a harpsichord, not a piano, but I could be wrong...

Keep the Flame only has a simple piano backing at least. And what? Cymbal? I think the instrument is called piano and there's a cymbal on the drum set... :D

You know, I haven't thought about it for quite some time. Now that you mention it, "back home again" sounds as it might be what's sang there. It's more likely compared to what I once heard, "back from the dead", since they didn't die back then or anything... :D I don't have my Strato records here in Tampere with me, but I don't think it even reads in the lyrics...

If I still had my copy of Visions, I'd let you know what the lyrics were, but sadly, Visions and about 20 more of my beloved CDs were destroyed in a car accident I had over the weekend. Sigh...

Well, it could by "back from the dead". You know, when bandy write those hymns about their legions of fans or metal in general tend to exaggerate. ManOwaR is a perfect example. Have you ever listened to the Lyrics of "Warriors of the World United"?

I also love to hear A million light years aways, Destiny, Winter Skies & Hunting high & low!
