Due to my love for power metal recently being rekindled I thought I'd make a list of my all time favorite power metal albums. Some of those mentioned here are crossing over into different musical directions, but I still consider them to be mainly or at least to some extent power metal.
Also I'll limit myself to only one album per band.
The layout will be band/album/favorite song from the album

1. Crimson Glory - Transcendence
2. Fates Warning - Awaken The Guardian
3. Blind Guardian - A Night at the Opera
4. Lethal - Programmed
5. Sanctuary - Refuge Denied
