    Flash Of The Blade
    Hooks In You
    Prowler

    if any of these are considered classics, I would probably substitute in:

    Purgatory

    I like this thread.


    Sun and Steel (best chorus EVER just about)
    Afraid to Shoot Strangers
    Run Silent Run Deep
    Sea of Madness
    Innocent Exile (does this count?)

    EDIT: throw Wasting Love in there somewhere too

    THUMBS UP, you get to replace afraid with wasting love because afraid is a song they used to play live a lot and so forth and most people count it as one of the best songs on fotd i think. anyway i completely agree that wasting love is great and also NON-GAY. it has long been my position that fear of the dark should have been a mini-album with this tracklist: be quick or be dead/wasting love/afraid to shoot strangers/judas be my guide/fear of the dark (i HATE fear of the dark for being overplayed as HELL but technically it is a decent song)

    i agree with the rest of the above too, i just agree with my own choices even more. i love the chorus and pre-chorus bits of sea of madness (10/10), i think the verses kinda let it down a little bit (8/10).

    ya you get to switch out "prowler" i think, that's too commonly praised

    anyway i agree with all of these except "hooks in you" because that song is pretty lame honestly.

    LOL at ranking SECTIONS of songs out of 10. Then again I can't say anything. I just added up how many "growling sections" (in minutes) there are on Turn Loose The Swans and, based on the length of the album, came up with a percentage. It's 13%. Ergo, can it really be considered "death doom"? (Lamest attempt at a threadjack ever?)

    "Two Minutes To Midnight"? Uhhh.... I think most would consider that a classic.

    Yep, that version is great. Good thing they dug it out for The best of the beast, deluxe edition.
