    Cool thread. May have been done before, but it sparks good discussions. And it gets WAY tougher to choose as you get to the later albums. I almost have to pick 3 - 5 for Divine Wings, Twilight, and V. Also, after looking at my picks, it's easy to see that I prefer the more verse-chorus, simple kind of songs.

    SX - Masquerade. But it's close.
    Damnation - The Damnation Game.
    Divine Wings - Sea of Lies.
    Twilight - Smoke and Mirrors.
    V - Rediscovery pt. II
    Odyssey - The Accolade II.
    Paradise - Eve of Seduction.

    MAN!! i really though we would be at least 5 or six posts in before someon chooses something other than "the odyssey" for that album!!!accolade is a sweet song though.

    also didn't see eve of seduction coming so soon.

    Divine Wings, V, and PL were the hardest for me. mainly because all of the songs on those albums kick so much ass!

    Yas, way to go with Orion: The Hunter. That song rules, way underrated.

    Orion The Hunter isn't bad, but I think it's still more of a middle-tier song in Symphony X catalogue.

    SX -Absinthe And Rue
    Damnation Game - The Edge Of Forever
    Divine Wings - The Divine wings Of Tragedy
    Twilight - Church Of The Machine
    V - This is a hard one... Communion And the Oracle... Or Fallen
    The Odyssey - The Odyssey
    Paradise Lost - Not sure at all, maybe Revelation

    There are too many choices for each album therefore I cannot do this. For example there are sometimes two or three ridiculously good songs on some albums. For example on Odyssey you have the Odyssey and The Accolade II. On V, it's basically the whole CD. For Twilight there is both Smoke and Mirrors, and Looking Glass. I just can't make up my mind...

    This question is quite hard to answer since I only can make conclusions taken my currently favourites into consideration. Therefore, my favourites are (listed in chronological order)

    - Masquerade
    - The Edge of Forever
    - The Divine Wings Of Tragedy
    - Through the Looking Glass
    - Rediscovery, Pt. 2: The New Mythology
    - The Odyssey
    - Seven


    This list would presumably change over time.

    Just want to comment that on some of these albums it is way harder to choose one song than on others....anyway...

    S/T- Masquerade
    DG- On the Edge of Forever
    DWoT- title track (only cause all the other tracks besides Accolade are short and pretty simple)
    TiO- Church of the Machine (hard choice here)
    V- Fallen
    Odyssey- Awakenings
    PL- Set the World on Fire (very hard choice.....most melodic imo)

    This should have been like choose your favorite ballad and heavy song off of each album really. I tend to like the most well rounded songs which PL doesn't really have any songs like that; therefore, I had the hardest time deciding from that album.
