    What is the best solo ever pulled off in SyX-matters? One of my faves is from Of Sins And Shadows.. That one truly kicks ass.

    I'll agree with "Of Sins and Shadows", but "Smoke and Mirrors" is close behind for me. I love Romeo and Pinella's duels :D :eek:

    I really like the crazy stuff going on in "Egypt"... Lepond's insane bass and Romeo's incredible guitar solo...

    IMO:

    Of Sins And Shadows
    Sea Of Lies
    Accolade II
    Dressed To Kill
    The Odyssey
    The Divine Wings Of Tragedy
    The Bird Serpent War/Cataclysm

    those are the ones at the top of my head.

    Sea of Lies is my favorite hands down.

    Of Sins and Shadows, Church of The Machine, The Damnation Game, Dressed to Kill, Wicked, Incantations..., Communion and the Oracle, King of Terrors, Accolade I and II are others. I will stop there. MJR is a f@#$ing amazing player, I love all of his solos!

    The second solo just after the 1st chorus in Awakenings is by far Romeo's most emotional solo to date. Sea of Lies is another favorite of mine.

    For me all SX's solos are great. Is so difficult to pick one, so I won't.

    Six or Seven Minutes into The Odyssey (The Song, not the Cd ;) ) is just pure bliss. Fuck this, I'm taking Out Iced Earth - Something wicked and listening to that solo.

    Personally I like Romeo's solo in "Dawn Of A Million Souls" the best, There's so much feeling there and it is a really quintessential Romeo solo. But as far as Symphony X...there are so many. Either "In The Dragon's Den", "Sea Of Lies", or "Dressed To kIll".

    For Pinnella; I like the one in "Candlelight Fantasia" the most. It has a very Beethovenian feel.

    For bass, probably "The Divine Wings Of Tragedy".
    :cool:

    I agree, the solo on Dawn is amazing...Universal Migrator is a required purchase for any SX fan.
