    Yes, it's another "what would your dream setlist be for a SX show?" thread, but let's skew a little different.

    What would your CURRENT, REALISTICALLY-PLANNED setlist be, factoring in the release of Iconoclast?

    This means no: "Nothing after teh Odyssey! Selist will be all of V, The Odyssey (song) in full, Divine Wings (song), and close with Edge of Forever!" Obviously, this is your setlist, so if you wanna choose some out of the box songs, go for it! But keep in mind: this new album came out, and the guys really like playing Paradise Lost songs as well.

    Mine would be:

    - Evolution (The Grand Design)
    - The End of Innocence
    - Dehumanized
    - The Serpent's Kiss
    - Accolade/Accolade II
    - Out of the Ashes
    - Prometheus (I Am Alive)
    - Set the World on Fire
    - Communion and the Oracle
    - Absence of Light
    - Wicked
    - Iconoclast

    - When All is Lost
    - Inferno (Unleash the Fire)

    I don't really get it. On the other hand we need to be realistic and add songs they are definitely going to play from the latest albums, but on the other hand you are allowed to add songs they are never ever going to actually play at this point like The Accolade and Absence of Light?

    Just a thought...

    But if I could go ahead and pick some of my favourite songs from each of the last five albums, it would be something like:

    Iconoclast
    When All is Lost
    Children of A Faceless God
    Set The World on Fire
    Paradise Lost
    Accolade II
    The Odyssey
    Communion
    Fallen
    Egypt
    The Accolade
    Sea Of Lies
    Church of the machine
    Through the looking glass


    put into some kind of sensible order.

    Agreed to an extent. I can see them playing anything heavy live after the flow of the last two albums so I would say Absence of Light isn't really too unrealistic. Maybe Accolade though :)
    I do think its only fair to put songs you think they will actually play though, not another wishlist to everyone who wishes to post.

    These are not my favorite Symphony X tracks, in fact some of them I don't even care for...but being realistic as far as where the band has taken their music heaviness-wise, I thought the list was appropriate and timed out decently well. I could see them play this list track for track is what I mean...not being unrealistic.

    Opener - Iconoclast
    The End of Innocence
    Dehumanized
    Of Sins and Shadows
    Wicked
    Egypt
    The Serpent's Kiss
    Paradise Lost
    When All is Lost

    Encore
    - King of Terrors
    - Reign in Madness

    Before you rape my choices:
    As much as people hate Reign in Madness, I think its a good song and would be a great powerful closer.

    Yes, exactly. :heh:

    This was mainly so that people (namely IC/PL haters) didn't simply make a list that completely ignored their recent albums. As far as me putting in shot-in-the-dark songs? Guilty.

    I agree. If I added another IC song, it would be Reign.

    After watching the recording of that stream that Jax posted, I’m sure we’ll see Iconoclast, Heretic, Dehumanized, Domination, Set the World on Fire, and Paradise Lost this next tour, given how much the members said they like these songs and/or how they will be live. I think we might also see a surprise Communion and the Oracle this time around, but that would be 3 slower songs including When All Is Lost and Paradise Lost. I would love more old stuff, but I don’t see it happening.

    My somewhat realistic setlist for this tour:
    Oculus Ex Inferni >Iconoclast
    Dehumanized
    Heretic
    When All Is Lost
    Domination
    Serpent’s Kiss
    Prometheus
    Set the World on Fire
    Paradise Lost
    Evolution > Fallen (please!!!)
    Smoke & Mirrors

    Encore:
    Masquerade or Communion
    Either Divine Wings or The Odyssey or Reign in Madness

    If they ever play any of these songs, I would die of blissfulness. I particularly love the underrated Orion.

    I wish they'd realize how good that song is and play it live, too, but Lepond told me a few years ago that "we'd never hear it" because not enough people are familiar with it.

    Awesome (and totally realistic, haha) setlist, btw!

    It's a shame too. Frontiers doesn't make it's way into my ears very often, but when it does, I'm always just amazed. I'm not sure why I don't listen to it that much.

    ^ It's a great song, but it also contains a very unusual sound for them. It's a bit more optimistic as far as the lyrics go, and the music is very 70s-proggish at times. The overall tone of the song is kind of "happy" when compared to their other stuff.

    I'm sure these are just some of the reasons why MJR left this track off the regular version of The Odyssey. On an album full of songs about Greek mythology, knights' tales, Poe stories, Disney movies, and creepy women in cemeteries, a song about mankind's exploration of outer space would seem a bit out of place.
