    The main difference being is that when you look at fans who post on their Facebook threads there are hundreds and sometimes thousands of posters, where as on this board, there are like 20 something people who post so I guess you can't blame them if they don't pay as much attention to us.

    I prefer their middle material, V > Odyssey > Divine Wings > PL

    But The Odyssey is their best song by far, imo.

    Well, here we are at the end of the tournament, and the victor is...
    *drum roll*

    The Divine Wings of Tragedy, beating The Odyssey 10-8.
    I suppose DWOT was the most likely to win, and it's certainly worthy of the title of Tournament Champion and Best Symphony X Song. Still, Odyssey does deserve some credit for putting up such a good fight against DWOT- it's certainly a masterwork in its own regard. Thanks for voting, everyone.

    Also, just for fun, here's a Top 20 of SX songs based on their performance in the tournament.

    1: The Divine Wings of Tragedy
    2: The Odyssey
    3: The Accolade
    4: Rediscovery pt. 2
    5: Through the Looking Glass
    6: Communion and the Oracle
    7: Egypt
    8: Accolade II
    9: Revelation
    10: Candlelight Fantasia
    11: A Fool's Paradise
    12: Evolution
    13: Church of the Machine
    14: Of Sins and Shadows
    15: The Edge of Forever
    16. Paradise Lost
    17: Orion- The Hunter
    18: A Winter's Dream pt. 2
    19. Sea of Lies
    20: Rediscovery pt. 1

    Wow, glad I was proven wrong by thinking The Odyssey would win. :D

    Based on that top 20 list I think it's safe to say that Candlelight Fantasia and The Edge of Forever are underrated, while Through the Looking Glass is a little overrated (imo). Nice list though. You guys are awesome.

    I'm glad DWOT won though. It's my favorite SX song, so naturally, I think it is the best.

    I don't know what's more pathetic. That, or the fact that only 18 people voted in the Symphony X Tournament.

    Well, it has become pretty quiet here over the last few years.

    I know. And I'm a long-time member, and I barely come here; but this thread reminded me of the glory days when SX was center stage on here and it was a novel idea. I just thought it would have brought more people out of the woodwork.

    Egypt at #7.
    Well, I guess that's alright. The Accolade at #3, at least.

    If this poll was done on facebook there would be tons more votes and way different results. I would be interested to see it, but it would probably have to be done by Jax since no one would pay attention to it if someone just posted one on their own account.

    Well I certainly wouldn't be able to see it, let alone play in it. I don't use fakebook.
