I was referring to the video here and not their music.

Noted. Will send for review and report back. Best album/best to start with?
Best three are Tales from the Twilight World, Imaginations from the Other Side and Nightfall in Middle-Earth. The second album here is often regarded on some lists as the best power metal album ever recorded, but the third is their most epic. Personally I don't think you'll like them despite their fame and reputation in the power metal world, as Hansi Kursch is not your type of vocalist, but you'll appreciate the complexity of their sound.

If Hansi Kursch's vocals are too much for him then he might as well go listen to N'SYNC.

Already have done, for my journal. God after that I needed the loudest metal I could get just to drive those bloody digital piano tunes and close-harmony singing out of my head! Urgh!

Thanks for the suggestions but if you look back you'll find that a) I hate the Pogues b) I have no time for rap/hip-hop and c) I'm not trying to expand my horizons genre-wise here, which seems to be something people are confusing my intentions with. What I want to do, am doing, is trying to listen to albums I should have heard already, given the genres I like. Doesn't mean I won't occasionally step outside for a moment (I still wake up screaming about Captain Beefheart!) but generally, I'm not looking to "push" anything, just listen to albums that for one reason or another I have not yet done so.

With that in mind, I think it may soon be time for "Close to the edge..."

Oh, also: I listened to the new Boards album and hated it. I was told "Music has the right to children" is the one, so if --- if --- I do one, it'll probably be that.

You should do one like that in the future. Seriously consider it. You know we would back you and throw so many suggestions your way. You'd have to open your mind a bit for it though.

Seeing as how you haven't reviewed "Nevermind" yet, I'm afraid I'll have to guilt trip you into it....

TROLLHEART! Why aren't you thinking of poor Powerstars at home with his two broken computers, being forced to browse the internet on his 3DS's crappy browser! The one thing he wants to read, and it's not up yet! Please, think about the children!


Nah, really though, can you tell me when you'll think about it? I already know that the "One Minute In" and "One Track In" rankings aren't gonna be good, cuz the first song is "Teen Spirit" but I think you'll like the rest. Heavy, but it has some melody.
