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...

well 'Turn The Page' happens to be my favorite - so i cant vote now..
i wasnt hugely impressed with this album at all really, although i do still think its good
i just think there are so many better Blind Guardian albums

'Turn The Page' just attracted my attention most from the album, so that is my favorite

Easily "Fly." I still haven't been able to warm up to this album like I should. However, I will indeed give it much more time.

I feel it is one of their weaker efforts too, but still a great album, i rate it around 7.5/10. I dont like the modern elements at all really, especially in Fly and The Edge. I like the softer songs better on this album.

My favorite song from this album was Skalds And Shadows it was the only song on this album that really stands out to me. Overall I think the album isn't that great I'd give it about a 6/10 but there are some good riffs on the album I just don't really like the style of the songs it's missing the alot of the signature Blind Guardian sound. This is probably why I like Skalds And Shadows best because it's closest to the old stuff IMO.

Damn you Dark Cornatus! Dead Sound of Misery was my choice

Not a problem since all songs on this release are brilliant. This is my album of the year without any doubt and probably one of the best albums I've heard in years My soul was literally waiting for this music.

I'm tempted to vote for Another Stranger Me but I think I'll wait until the album has had even more time to sink in

Lionheart is the only one that has really hit me so far, so it gets my vote. The others are good, but left me wanting more.

Yeah it is one of their weaker efforts.....it's still okay though. The only song on there what really captures my attention is most definately "Skalds And Shadows"! That is the standout song for me

Voted 'Otherland' - the intro ('they rule the land, they're in command...') and the chorus are the best parts of the new album, I think.

Yeah, 'Otherland' gets my vote too. That song could fit on any post-Imaginations from the Other Side album. Classic BG, and the only time on the new album when they're truly at their best.

Otherland followed by Skalds And Shadows.
Both are reminiscent of there earlier albums and are wonderful....

I voted for Skalds And Shadows. I heard this song before album was released and I liked it already then. It really differs from other songs, and it reminds me a bit A Past And Future Secret. When I listen this song (Skalds...) i get a great pleasure from Hansi voice, atmosphere of this song and it's simplicity
The rest songs are okay too.. Except for Fly.. I just didn't get it..

First of all, I think this album is a disapointment compared to the greats Imaginations and Nightfall but it's still a quality power metal release, except for some few fillers songs, so there is my favourites songs in
"A Twist In The Myth"

3-Turn The Page
2-Another Stranger Me
1-And my vote goes to "Otherland" for the best song in the album.

But why all songs aren't in the poll

I voted for Another Stranger Me!

It's one hell of a fast song that made me fly out of the window when I first heard the first parts of the intro. (This is not the only time this had happened to me)

2. Turn The Page
3. Otherland
4. This Will Never End
5. Straight Through The Mirror

The weakest song is Carry The Blessed Home, it's not horrible but I hate ballads as general! The heacy stuff of the album are fucking amazing.

This album in general is amazing. One of the best BG albums... and yes, I do have Blind Guardian experiance because they are my favorite band ever!

It's a toss up (for me) between Otherland, Lionheart and Fly.
It took me a while to enjoy Fly but i guess that was the same for everyone.

I believe my favourite song is the Otherland because of the wonderful lead guitars and the great solo

For me, the chorus of Otherland was one of the highlights of the album, but Lionheart comes close. I'll always remember Lionheart as the song that broke my old stereo - "I'm in search of the Liiiii-o-o-ooo...*kaboom*..."

'Fly' because it has grown on me a lot and I still listen to it as it's on my iPod. So catchy...'Otherland' is good as well as 'Lionheart'. At first I didn't like 'Another Stranger Me' but once again repeated listenings has coerced me into enjoying it and I occassionally find myself humming it.

hmmm well now that I think of it 'Turn The Page' is easily the best heavy song on there, yet it isn't featured in the poll

I think this album is like Red Wine, the taste is very aquired but after a while it really grows on you!

I voted for Carry the Blessed Home, I guess I like it because it's softer then some of those other songs and I love the lyrics.

I think turn the page os the best, mainly because it's the song that tuned me in to blind guardian, id heard nothing like it before, its almost pop but at the smae time its soo metal. One problem though, you haven't included it so I can't vote!
