Yay, another top 10 thread. Been working on this list and discussing it alot with other people lately irl. In no order: Out of the Ashes (solo 2): Holy phrasing batman. This solo's biggest plus is that it just has it all. Domination: This solo just kicks me in the teeth. The first tapping section and the ending legato lick in particular just ice the big, beautiful cake so well. Smoke and Mirrors (both): This is another one that just has it all. The transitions to and from the keys are smoother than any dueling section I can think of in the SX discography. Again, the phrasing here is just so spot on. Underworld (both): The main minor/diminished run in the first half just absolutely devastates me, and it is led into and out of perfectly. The second half is just pure cool factor, and I LOVE the outro bit. King of Terrors (my second favorite SX Romeo solo): I think I actually need no explanation here. Just wtf. Swan Song: Beautiful use of pauses, and some great transitional work between the already cool chords. Just beautiful. Masquerade (Odyssey version, my favorite Romeo SX solo to date): I don't know exactly what it is about this solo, but it just slays me. The lick at 4:08 is so unique and clever, and the seemingly simple run at 4:27 just fits so well into place. The intro/outro are the best Romeo has done as well, IMO. Kiss of Fire: I die inside when I hear this, honestly. It is just cool. I have no other words besides "cool" really. The last tapping run, with the muted notes (whether or not they were on purpose) just destroys me. Awakenings (all): The phrasing and sustain used throughout each of the solos in this song are just glorious. Perfect blend of shred and feels. Ethereal and glorious. The Odyssey (second solo starting at 14:09): Unique phrasing and clever use of bends and sustain. Love the mutes mid shred too. The ending seals the deal because it is just so "metal". I know these are my favorites, but with the exception of my top 2, it's impossible to order them. Odyssey and UW dominate this list, taking 7 spots. I think another solo of Romeo's that is in my top 3 overall is his Gaia solo on Russell's solo album. That is one monstrous piece of work, particularly the phrasing and that crazy sliding, pinched harmonic arpeggio. Alas, it is not SX. What's your list look like?
