    Something Wicked This Way Comes, because it was the album that brought me into Iced Earth, and that Triology is fantastic

    I gotta say Dark Saga on this one.
    That album is amazing from beginning to end.
    Great songs, great style. :headbang:

    My fave would be Night Of The Stormrider. Great concept, awesome songs...just a killer album. If I had to rank them in order I guess it would go like this:

    1. Night Of The Stormrider
    2. Something Wicked This Way Comes
    3. Burnt Offerings
    4. Horror Show
    5. The Dark Saga
    6. Iced Earth
    7. Enter The Realm

    I didn't include Alive In Athens, but I have to go on record and say it's the best live album ever recorded. I didn't include Tribute...coz I don't really like it. :loco:

    for now,Burnt Offerings (remastered one),since it seems to be the only album of theirs that I listen to. Granted,the Dark Saga story is fucking awesome,I'm hoping to get all the Spawn comics soon...

    Something Wicked.. the song's aren't as consistent as Dark Saga but the Trilogy is awesome. Stormrider rules too :headbang:

    It's a tie between both Dark Saga and Something Wicked This Way Comes.

    -Burnt Offerings (the closest to perfect they've ever come)
    -SWTWC (good, varied stuff)
    -Stormrider (I love the thrash stuff - higher if not for the vox)
    -Saga (good, solid album)
    -Horror Show (a bit too overdone, but there's some cool shit)
    -s/t (Hate those vox, plus the songwriting is undeveloped)

    Yup Something Wicked Brought me into Iced Earth as well, and I happen to be listening to it right now.:p It's probably my favorite album so far. But that doesn't mean much because I only have that. Horror Show, and Burnt Offerrings.

    For me, it's Night Of The Stormrider. It's true blue Progressive Power/Thrash, it's got a great story, one of the best concept albums ever and the music is just dark, heavy and at times, a bit catchy.
