Been in a very jazz rock mood lately, and these 2 haven't left my CD player over a week from now. Both original and as competent as their first 2 albums, though very different stylistically.



Which one do you prefer?

I'll go with Apocalypse, but Visions does have Eternity's Breath, which is epic.

Maybe the best by Stratovarius, though I prefer Elements Part 1Embarrassed

Yes, Visions of the Emerald Beyond has Eternity's Breath, so epic, that it is devided in two parts, which makes it even more epic.. (by the way, potential poll?)

I think it's Visions for me, though I have to admit that I haven't listened both a lot, but from what I heard so far, Visions. Could be because I rather dislike Hymn to Him..

I've never really got Mahavishnu mark 2 either; Visions is sort of OK but I can't get into Apocalypse at all.
