We can all agree that A Winter's Dream is Symphony X's undisputed masterpiece, right?
I love all they're older, more melodic stuff, but with Lady of the snow or The Edge of Forever are my favorites. But A winter's dream is definitely in my top 5.
which song won that long-running versus contest, again?
An oldy and a goody! :Spin:
So, I went back and gave it another listen. I think yer right, it definitely could be their best.
I think Divine Wings, but Odyssey got unacceptably close.
Yeah, it was Divine Wings. And rightly so.
As for Winter's Dream, it's definitely a special piece. I love the mysterious feel of the first part, and pt. II is pretty good as well. Wouldn't say top 5 though, but definitely top 15.
All of the Damnation Game has that mysterious feel. That's why it's like my second fave album by them. It creates this atmosphere I've never gotten from any other album. It's also SXs darkest album, while not their heaviest. (The two aren't the same)
Wow, that song is not the best of anything. Unless maybe: best of the annoying power metal ballad slow songs from Symphony X's first couple albums?
Do you enjoy having wrong opinions?
Baroque, what do you believe is their best?
if it ain't baroque, don't fix it
aha hah hah hah hah!
Winter's Dream is definitely underrated, I enjoy it quite a bit. Definitely not in my top ten, but still very good.
That joke is older than A Winter's Dream, also, my name is short for 'Baroque as a Joke' which is my own spin on that. So, thanks.
I believe their best song is the Odyssey.
How wrong can one guy be?
Yeah, I can agree with that
