    The Edge Of Forever if you like this person and think he/she is hopeful.:cool:

    Inferno if you have any reservations with the above.:Shedevil:

    I'd recommend:
    - Out of the ashes or Evolution as the most accessible songs for people who like metall

    - Awakenings or The Odyssey to show their abilty to compose superb songs

    - Candelight Fantasia just because I love it

    - Fallen or Bird Serpent War to show the Dark Side :heh:

    ...and Smoke and Mirrors for guitar maniacs.

    I hooked a friend of mine showing him the solo in sea of lies and of sins and shadows, that method has instant effect.

    Allright, i want thank all of you for your suggestions.

    I won over the rock/metal fans with: Dressed to kill, the Relic, Dragon's Den, Evolution, inferno and the eyes of medusa, of sins and shadows

    The classical dude was won over with: the edge of forever, a fools paradise, the Odyssey, (and I lured him into the Accolade with the great violin opening)

    The dreamtheater guy with everything that lasts longer than 12 minutes :) particularly with the divine wings of tragedy (the song), the The Odyssey and the death of balance

    My general impression is that people are used to "drive in music" if you know what I mean. Songs that last 3 minutes, repeating the catchy chorus 5 times and that's it. So the trick is to make 'm listen to parts of songs that are easy and catch on fast and then gradually submit them to more long lasting, true sx fury. In short, you want to make 'em go :OMG: :hotjump: but you don't want to make 'em :ill: :cry: :erk:

    Well, it was by a coincidense that it was decided that i was the one who should bring and play music in the cafeteria at school. Of course i brought Symx even though i new what would be the results.
