Like both Plague and Meurglys but didn't include them.

Also, no VDG stuff either.

I went with Darkness but could have picked any of the first four although all of them are great.
I like how you picked one song off of each of those six classic albums.

Lemmings for me...
He neither drank, smoked, nor rode a bicycle. Living frugally, saving his money, he died early, surrounded by greedy relatives. It was a great lesson to me -- John Barrymore

Very difficult to choose between Darkness and Sleepwalkers, closely followed by La Rossa. I think I'll give the edge to Darkness, for it was the first song I knew and loved from the band, and it's the one that convinced me to keep trying with the band, for their albums were a bit difficult to take in the beginning (as is the case with most of the best prog).

Nice group! Just had to go with La Rossa...however, things would be different if you said Lost instead of Pioneers or Man-Erg instead of Lemmings...

All great songs. 'La Rossa' is probably my second fav VdGG song after APOLK.
So, 'La Rossa' it is.
