    One of TM's favourite bands and an influence, here is your chance to decide what is indeed the best FATES WARNING album ever!!
    If by any chance your not familiar with FW then please do yourself a favour and look them up. A band that has really put out some great releases.:worship:

    I'm disappointed "Alaude Sonare Sauvis" isn't up there.

    Although a diff sound from the Arch days i would still recommend Parallels to anyone that can appreciate quality songwriting and impressive musicianship.
    But i may be alone here?:erk:

    I accidentally voted for "Perfect Symmetry". I meant to click "Parallels". "Awaken The Guardian" comes a fairly close second though.

    Yeah you're right Dave. I'm a bit harsh on the Alder era. I really like Parallels and No Exit has it's moments too. To be honest i've only heard bits and pieces of all the other Alder albums and they are all pretty good.

    Its parallels for me. Huge huge album. Not a fan of pre Alder fates. *Rolls up into the foetal position and protects head*

    I'm with you on Parallels dude. The definative FATES WARNING album imo.
    But the Arch support here is very strong.

    I reckon John Arch's solo material is a lot better than early Fates Warning but the first 4 tracks off "Awaken The Guardian" are admittedly hard to listen to without cracking at least half a bar.
    This poll is looking like a bit of a two-dog race :p

    I absolutely love Arch's solo EP and think it's a really ambitious and unique modern prog metal album, but i wouldn't say it's better than Awaken the Guardian. Only the first four songs make you crack half a bar!? You're excluding Prelude to Ruin, Giants Lore and the mighty amazing Exodus? Every song is ridiculously great!

    I wouldn't call Parallels the defintive Fates album. It's not really representative of what Fates do. It was really an attempt at commercial success. The band admit this themselves. It's still a cool album though.

    I'm very impressed at the results of the poll so far though!

    Well the album after "Parallels" ( "Inside Out") is pretty much in the exact same vein only with a weaker production.Just how many attempts at commercial sucess did they have?:lol:

    A perfect opportunity for young Shane to rediscover one of Fates Warning's finest moments :p

    Looks cool actually! I recently bought the No Exit reissue which has a bonus DVD from the No Exit tour and features a few hours of Ray Alder butchering the hell out of nearly every Arch era song. These days Ray can't even sing the material from his own era of Fates!

    He sounds good with Redemption though. Seems like thats more within his range.
