Plain and simple stratovarius create the most melodic heavy metal on the face of the earth. The first album i got, visions, is my personal favorite power metal c.d. of all time. But this one rates up their as well. Favorite tracks would probably be hunting high and low and phoenix. Everything on this album is great (keyboards, drumming, damn jorg kicks …!!) Vocals Timo Kotipelto in my opinion rates right up their with Hansi Kursch of Blind Guardian as one of the best vocalists in the power metal genre. Timo Tolkki is great as well. Great band. Great album. STRAT RULES!
