    This has got to be good news - one from the first and last album making the final.

    As I said in PITSODs earlier appearances I'm still not sure about it! I still think about clicking "next" when it comes on but am always pleased when I don't.

    But Sanitys End takes it - it builds and builds and explodes. I think it will remain a favourite for years (and I don't care who sings it)

    It's my favorite Threshold song so it's obvious that I'm going to vote for "Sanity's End". I remember when I first heard it at work in 2004. I was totally blown away :D

    Wow, a tie... My best Threshold 9+ mins song is Ravages Of Time, so this final poll is unfair for me: but if I have to vote, my choice goes to Pilot (even if it is the fourth in my personal standing: 1. Ravages, 2. Into The Light, 3. Eat The Unicorn).
    So now Pilot In The Sky Of Dreams takes the lead

    Wow! It's a tie, guys!

    I've played them both twice now in order to place my vote. Let's see which one that wins.

    Although Sanity's End is a formidable opponent, Pilot in the Sky of Dreams is the winner for me. Lyrically,it has relevance to a couple of recent events in my life.

    Pilot In the Sky of Dreams takes the final! :worship:

    Well done everybody who voted! This has been a fun series of polls for me. Hope others feel the same!

    Note that in the final we had a "record" number of voters in the 9+ minute polls! Thus, I assume that the right song won! :)

    Well, it did and it didn't.... in that final for sure, but on the overall.... my personal winner is and will always be Into The Light.
    Someone else said it before, would other tracks have competed with other tracks, the result would yet again be completely different.
    Maybe repeat the whole game in half a year's time or so?

    9+ minutes is too long for one song :/
