United

Post by Rage1979 » Thu Feb 04, 2010 12:52 pm

I know according to Tolkki that this is a song with "fake" lyrics.. I can't help loving this song. It also sounded great on their show.

I would love it in the setlist again.. my favourite song on "Stratovarius".

Kotipelto sounds incredible on this song too.

Back to Madness and Gottermadarung were the most effective songs on the album

Land of Ice and Snow is just awesome, but for me the best song of the album remains Leave The Tribe!!!
Through the storms we've wandered
Many mountains we have climbed
But all the bad times are behind
The road is free - I'm coming home

"Fake" lyrics? Maybe only for him, but for the other Stratoguys & principally for Us the fans that was not fake! Is not my fave song but I love United too & would be great to hear this song live too :)
Just carry on is great too!!!
Also I would love to hear another balads live like Dream with me, Luminous or Celestial Dream & A drop in the ocean :wink:

What are these kind of "fake lyrics" ? -Nevertheless they don't drop the quality of this great song in the least.

I suppose he knew the line-up wouldn't last. But i truly think they were in good terms during that time.
"It's great to look into the eyes of a friend
And shake his hand and thank him for the years"
I think it's a great song, but nowadays it makes me feel a bit sad because of the way things turned out eventually.

Yes... Maybe he just 'said what he said' in a burst of emotion about those particular lyrics when the "Hell" was afterwards on.... The lyric on "United" IMO was all true still at moment, and at least the hope for it's message.

Yes. Butt,

"We drifted apart on the sea of life"

if you only remove the underlined "f", the first line actually becomes honest, and sums up the chaotic years of Stratovarius quite well. :lol:
OMG, they fired Jari! Bastards!

Great song. Stratovarius had other great songs on it too. It's a shame that it was released during such a chaotic time for the band/fans and it was like their version of Dream Theater's 'Falling Into Infinity.'
