    I love Nightfall Overture as well, as I do all the albums!

    Nightfall Overture does kick ass indeed. There were tears in my eyes when I heard those older sings with Dan's more mature and expressive vocals. The title track is so beautiful and so moving. Dan sings like god on that one.

    I think Invisible is a very good disc, but a bit too much like Alive Again, and I really think if Dan goes for a more dark prog rock thing rather than 50/50 prog and hard rock it would kick ass. I agree his voice is at its best on the album though.

    I expect the new Nightingale to be as great as expected, but I'm drooling uncontrollably when I think of Dan's Second Sky. Because I know it's gonna be entirely prog.

    Great title for new N'gale by the way, Dan. Can't wait to hear it.

    This is a hard one. Do I have to choose?

    The Breathing shadow I love for its goth feeling and I also have some kind of nostalgic feeling about it. Hard to explain. Could be because it's the first Nightingale album I ever heard back in the days.

    Nightfall Overture I love for the way that the guys have brought new life to the old songs.

    Invisible I love for the great new songs and Dan's wonderful vocals.

    I love all the other albums as well, but those three are at the top and it's hard for me to choose one that I like the most, since I like each one "the most" for different reasons. So in conclusion I guess my list would look like this:

    1. The Breathing Shadow, Nightfall Overture, Invisible
    4. The Closing Chronicles
    5. Alive Again
    6. I

    *really looking forward to Second Sky and White Darkness*

    I really like all of them, but Alive Again is my favorite- every song on the album is just insanely catchy. Plus it reminds me a lot of whitesnake. And I love whitesnake!

    this is hard.

    I think my faves are The Breathing Shadow, I and Alive Again.
    But then again, Invisible completely rocks, and the song-quallity of CC is stunning. However, Closing Cronicles suffers from weak production and actually not one of Dans better vocal-moments. Strangely enough I think the production on The Breathing Shadow is very cool, and man, that album is filled with top-notch Swanömelodies.

    Been listening to a lot of The Breathing Shadow again lately, I'd put it under I for me.
