Surprisingly enough i'm not going to choose for Opera Fanatica. Not that it's a bad song, on the contrary.
I just think the other three are better.

This is it:

1: Purgatory Road
2: Tantalus
3: Smoke And Mirrors

Three top songs from a top album.  *horns* *horns* *horns*

1) Smoke And Mirrors
2) The Shattered Room
3) Bedlam Fayre
Let your conscience decide !

Cabo, the pot seems to be particularly good at the North Pole:

First of all, "Spectre at the Feast" is on Contagion, and secondly, it's "at"  ;) :)

It seems that The Shattered Room an Opera Fanatica are favourites.
It's funny that Tantalus doesn't get that much votes, since it's one of the most 'depressing' lyrics (accomponied by very interesting chord changes.) which is some sort of trademark for arena. The mood is very Arena-ish.

Interesting.
Only Maddox has chosen Tantalus. Maybe he can explain why he things itso much better than Opera Fanatica or Shatterd Room. I thought you liked epics Maddox?

True, but an epic doesn't necessarily has to be 13+ minutes long.
Tantalus has that dark and gloomy touch that i really like about a song. Almost epical, better yet for me it's epical.
The beginning with the only the piano and such, great lyrics about a tormented soul, the rest of the band that steps in with full force. All of this ingredients makes it for me a great song.

But don't get me wrong though. I love Opera Fanatica and The Shattered Room.
I just could only pick three songs.  ;)
