Thanks for all your advice so far... apart from Contagium/Contagious that is...  :P

I really like Contagion, The Visitor, Pepper's Ghost, still working on Immortal.

So what next? The Lion's Cage, Pride & The Cry? Wiki states that The Cry includes material from the first 2 albums?

INTRODUCTION
For those of you who are familiar with the "Crying For Help" pieces they should need no introduction. For those of you listening to Arena for the first time, read on..... back together again with the original titles, as well as using this chance to expand.....

The "Crying For Help" tracks were originally intended to be one piece of music. The plan was to write a 'Theme and Variations' which were integral to themselves, both musically and conceptually. At a later point, it was decided to use separate parts of this composition to act as musical interludes between larger and more intense songs on their two first albums, "Songs From The Lions Cage" and "Pride".

With this mini album the band have taken the opportunity to put the tracks back together again, whilst using this chance to expand, change and create fresh material. "The Cry" also features a song called "The Healer" written to be the final part of the "Crying For Help" series.

It is hoped that "The Cry" will provide yet further insight into the many musical and lyrical facets of Arena.

Once you have them all you will want more ... or is that just me ....

I bought them in this Order:

The Visitor (what a fantastic start)
Immortal?
Contagion
Pride
Pepper's Ghost
The Cry
and since Thursday (my birthday) I  have "Songs from the Lion's cage"

and I must say that I didn't know that there was another singer. I thought they only had two haha
Anyway, great album.

You need Breakfast in Biarritz now which is an excellent live album and welcome to the Stage also live. Then you will hear how good the guys are live although you have all the songs on the studio albums!

Unicorn

I forgot the Smoke & Mirrors DVD
Do you think I need the other live CDs aswell?

bellanova

You as well go for the whole lot. Theres also the other dvd "Caught in the Act" which includes a performance of the Contagion album minus a couple of songs.
