They have such a large discography, we should see an interesting range of picks. I myself am more fond of their early years, though I still haven't heard everything they've put out. I'm kind of hoping these lists will give me some indication of what album I should pick up next. Anyway, here's my top ten:

1. Life’s So Hard
2. Court of Avalon
3. Into the Courts of Chaos
4. Seven Trumpets
5. Riddle Master
6. Veils of Negative Existence
7. Dragon Star
8. Centurian War Games
9. Fires of Mars
10. Metal

And yes, I already own The Deluge. I love it of course, it just doesn't have any of my all time favorite songs.

Necropolis is a damn good song! Though I never cared too much about this band.

I'll finally see them for the first time in a couple of weeks!
Btw i can't decide, all the songs from the classic albums are awesome; maybe The Deluge (the track) stands above the others.

Except for MARK OF THE BEAST their entire catalogue is great but my 2 favorites both come from Crystal Logic:

Necropolis & Riddle Master.

That's interesting, what's your beef with MotB? It's the perfect bridge between their "classic" sound and their earlier influences (Rush, Hawkwind, etc). It's easily my favorite Road album, at least thus far.

My fave band of all time... I cannot choose just one song, the Crystal Logic album is absolutelly perfect, Open The Gates and The Deluge the same. Choosing three songs from CL I have to say:
1) Necropolis - for emotional impact
2) Crystal Logic - for the incredibile and unreachable songwriting
3) Flaming Metal System (although it was not present in the original version) - for the catchy and anthemic attitude

Odd to see no mention of Open the Gates here. Crystal Logic may have the hits, but that album to me has the best songs! The Ninth Wave could be the best "centerpiece" song ever!

Edit: Just saw Fires of Mars in the first post! D'uh!

Haha it's hard to choose just a couple of songs from the amazing discography, especially from the Crystal Logic - Mystification era...

I'll try to make a top 10, only in chronological order:

1. Flaming Metal Systems
2. The Riddle Master
3. Dreams of Eschaton
4. Road of Kings
5. The Ninth Wave
6. Witches Brew
7. Divine Victim
8. Mystification
9. Masque of the Red Death
10. Into the Courts of Chaos

Dreams of Eschaton is number one. One of the great metal epics. No love for Venusian Sea? That song is just so atmospheric and powerful in an understated kind of way.
