I've been enjoying these recent polls so I thought I'd step in and amp things up by offering my own. Let's try Renaissance albums.

I’m scared to pick just one track. This album is something special, definitely my favourite Renaissance album. I may just say Black Flame. What a BRILLIANT album.

The problem I have with Renaissance is they let some of their songs run a little too long and they become a bit repetitive. Black Flame doesn't have that problem - it's brilliant all the way through which is why I voted for it.

This is really great album! I think all the songs are just great, when listening few hours ago I just wondering how they could have so much so great melodies, how the whole album is just so great when itīs very rare in todayīs albums that the whole album is like this!

Really hard to pick one, but when Cold is Being started, I knew itīs going to be my choise. I have always loved that Alibinoni-piece, I havenīt got no idea Renaissance had made version of it. When I heard Annie singing it, shivers ran all over me. Itīs has been quite rare recent years I had this quite spiritual experience with a great music.

Thanx a lot this thread, this album really made my day!

Mother Russia is so monumental that I can only vote for it, though the other two tracks on side 2 are both great

The only albums I've heard from this band are this and Ashes are Burning(love Carpet of the Sun). The song that I remember most from this one is Things I Don't Understand, so I voted for it. Like her voice a lot, I should start getting back into them.
