    Sorta, MJR likes these songs:

    Iconoclast (album)
    Serpents Kiss
    Eve of Seduction
    Of Sins and Shadows
    Smoke and Mirrors
    The ocaasional Through the Looking Glass and Sea of Lies.

    He dislikes all of the Damnation Game and Symphony X, and 95% of Twilight, V, Divine, and The Odyssey.

    It's a joke. I say this because if you saw them live fifty times, what I just gave you would be the set list for those fifty live shows. Symphony X will NOT deviate from those twelve or so songs. They will not play Lady of Snow, they will not play Savage Curtain, or Whispers, no Candlelight Fantasia, Absence of Light etc. They play only new stuff- besides like five songs, none of their best stuff...

    Sorry about the rant... :wave:

    If they changed up their set list I am sure they'd have to.

    For a glimpse in the past, to a time when they were more creative with their live shows... I stumbled upon this again. Accolade medley. There was never a better time to be a SX fan than when they toured in support of The Odyssey - most eclectic set list ever.



    ...just for the new fans who might think it has always been like this...

    Then I saw them in milan supporting stratovarius,such a shame,they deserved a longer set but I was happy the same with accolade 1 and 2 together.When stratovarius played, I noticed at the enter of the hall lepond and Rullo,so me and my friend had a chat with them while listening the boring stratovarius.Luckily a few months after Sx returned in Milan as headliner

    It gets strange when it's something you've created. Personally, I like listening to my own music, but only for analysis. I never say to myself, "man, I really want to hear that song I wrote right now!" because as soon as I put it on all I notice are the flaws and things I could change. It's similar for most creative people I've met - actors don't like watching themselves, writers don't like reading themselves, etc.
