Well i had to leave three songs out, and i believe the weakest 3 are Turn The Page, The New Order and Dead Sound Of Misery, i apologise if of the them was your choice.

Im not just posting this poll for the sake of it, its really interesting how many people have different favourites on the album, i was curious which would actually win.

My favourite is 'Carry The Blessed Home', followed by 'Skalds And Shadows' and 'Straight Through the Mirror'.

EDIT: For some reason the poll rearranged the songs, sorry about that, i typed them in order...

I prefer song This Will Never End, because now it sounds to me the best from all of others...but it could change.

I though this was a very good album. Certainly amonst the top 20 this year so far. Another Stranger Me i found to be a very catchy song, and one i very much enjoyed. Fly as well was very good and one of my favorite BG songs. I very much enjoyed this album althouhg the lack of a concept behind it dose make it a little hollow in comparision to other BG albums.
My vote went for Another Stranger Me, mainly because its a song that stands out above the other tracks very clearly.

This is the album that really woke me up to BG. Originaly I loved Fly and Dead Sound of Misery the most. Now, I'd have to give it to Lionheart overall.

And for the record, just cause it may differ from the bands standard style of songwritting, dose NOT make it a weak album. For the record, at least half the songs were a product of far more advanced songwritting technique than Somewhere Far Beyond(which is IMO, and overrated album).

Skalds and Shadows, because it is such a beautiful song and really carries this medieval feeling all over. This underlines Blind Guardian's position as the bards of Heavy Metal.

I was quite disappointed to see The New Order out, because it is maybe my favorite BG song ever... at last, it is defenitely in top 5 So I vote for This Will Never End, a stellar song.
I understand the majority that voted for Otherland, too. I really don't know which I like better, Otherland or TWNE, but that's my irrational choice ^^

I actually liked "Turn the Page" the best. For one thing, it's a happy-sounding, upbeat song about convincing someone to give himself up for blood sacrifice. That's just automatically cool.

But that wasn't on there, so I went for "Lionheart", which is also great - a twist in the myth indeed.

I chose Lionheart, because its the first BG song I heard, and its simply an epic song. Also, I like the metaphoric themes of the song.

The album opens with its 2 best songs, This Will Never End, and Otherland. Carry The Blessed Home is another great song, and lovely ballad. Its hard to choose between the 1st two, but I'll go for This Will Never End. Great opener.

Personally I thought Otherland was one of BG's weaker tracks, my favorite song on here is Skalds and Shadows, beautiful ballad.

Ditto with Codera the Great, I always thought Skalds and Shadows was amazing.

The more i think about it, the more likely i would vote for "Turn The Page"..."Otherland" is too plain cheesy after longer time
