    My favourite album is Tyranny/Room V, and my favourite song is also Room V... That "double album" is a magnificent achievement.
    I love every album though, each and every one of them has its highlights.

    s/t : Darktown is fucking catchy as hell, and The Queen Of The City Of Ice is just beautiful
    Carved In Stone : that one is brilliant from start to finish ; "Ghostship" of course is quite the adventure.
    Legacy : COLORS ! One of my absolute favourite SG tunes, just a gorgeous piece of music.
    And then Tyranny/Room V. What can I say ? Great storytelling, fantastic music, this is SG's true masterpiece imho.

    Digital Ghosts is a brilliant record but I'll need more sittings to determine which part of it I like the most. I think it's bound to become another perfect record...

    Hands down "Tyranny" a masterwork from head to toes. The band peaked with that one undoubtedly. Some of my favorite songs:

    'The Queen Of The City Of Ice'
    'War For Sale'
    'Warcry'
    'Society Of The Mind'

    Tyranny was the first album I heard, and I did not like it. But before giving up on them I decided to give shadow gallery one more chance and their debut caught my interest becaue of the mystical and etheral feel of the album cover. At first I was not impressed as I usually don't listen to "cheese," but I'm glad I did because after the 3rd listen or so I found myself singing along and transporting my mind to this fantasy world shadow gallery's music conjours on their debut.

    I think Tyranny is the second best progressive metal album ever made, after Dream Theater's Images & Words.

    My top 10 favourite SG songs are (in alphabetical order):

    Cliffhanger 2
    Crystalline dream
    The Dance of fools
    Destination unknown
    Encrypted
    Ghostship, Pt. 5: Storm
    Hope for us?
    I believe
    New world order
    Rain

    Though my top 10 doesn't include any track from Digital Ghosts, I still think it's a very good album too, like every SG studio album.
