Great album, respected by quite a lot of PA members I see from its reviews. I think every track is strong, but which is the strongest? Take your pick...

Its a close call, but I think Desert Urbania is the best track on there, though Chromatic Chimaera, Feasting Fools and Megalomaniac Trees run it close.

Wow, three-in-row votes for the one track that I never really cared for! For me it's the opener and "Megalomaniac Trees" that have so far stuck out for me the most. I actually bought the album reacently since I'm gonna see the band play during the DT ProgNation tour (together with Big Elf and Opeth) in September. I'm really looking forward to their performance and judging from the YouTube clips I shouldn't be dissapointed!

One of the best avant-garde metal albums out there. I'll go with Megalomaniac Trees simply because it strikes me as the most powerful song on the album (and that really says something), followed by Chromatic Chimera and Psychic Jugglers. Love the classical-sounding intro for the closing track as well.

My coworkers are not happy with you for starting this poll. I don't use headphones...Big smile
You are quite a fine person, and I am very fond of you. But you are only quite a little fellow, in a wide world, after all.

Some of the more twisted ones may like it.

Hadn't listened to this in awhile. Now I remember why I gave it 5 stars. It makes my brain hurt just to think about how much work this must have taken to compose.

I hate this album. The only song that comes across as remotely listenable is Desert Urbania

Megalomanic Trees. Definitely the most compelling, courtesy of that one excellent violin riff. I really like it for some reason.

I chose Meet me at the Carousel, the harmonized guitar throughout the track just gives me shivers!

 

I likes musics

One of the grrrreatest albums of the 00´s(IMO). It was a tough choice, but i gave my vote to the final epic Psychic Jugglers. Magnificent finale for this mind-boggling album.Clap

...can´t wait for the new album

I prefer Psychic Jugglers just over Chromatic Chimera and Desert Urbania.
I really love Feasting Fools, too.
