Humanizzimo. I absolutely love it. It's to me the ultimate example of how to write a long multi-part epic. Every element I love about long songs is there: theme reprises, tension and release, sonic variety, perfect balance between vocal and instrumental parts. It's amazing.

This is hard for me, since I like The Flower Kings a lot. I voted for The Truth Will Set you Free, but any of them could win, and that would be fine with me.

'Stardust'...I suppose...but I only have the first 7 cd;s....and 'Garden' and 'Truth' are about the same level of quality for me . I stopped buying them at Unfold the Future because I was having trouble differentiating one  from another....the music while very good has a sameness that gets all blended  into one for me.

Stardust We Are. Not only it is catchy, logical, well-crafted but the way the themes of this epic are interspersed through the whole two disc album makes it its real peak point. 
yet you still have time!

Stardust We Are. The problem is it's so good the band can't better it so you wonder why they continued to write epics for so long.

I voted for Numbers, but now noticing that Humanizzimo, I think I may have voted for that instead.
