I think I already see a winner here Big smile. A beautiful, beautiful album that is truly a masterpiece. My vote goes to the obvious option, Song Of Scheherazade.

The wonderful Ocean Gypsy for me.

Always loved `The Vultures Fly High', short and sweet, a nice break from all the epics on that album!

But really, the entire album is top-notch! One of the very first prog albums I ever heard, and I still love it just as much today as when I first heard it!

Yes, a brilliant album - Renaissance's finest hour.  I have to go with the titular track, after that, Ocean Gyspsy, A Trip to the Fair, and finally The Vulture's Fly High which proves that they could do a great song under 10 minutes.

Brilliant album, but the epic Song of Sheherezade is unbeatable

No question: Trip to the Fair. One of the most unsettling and mood-manipulating songs ever created. Never fails to send shivers through me.

The whole album is fantastic, but the epic is the best.

No surprises here even though Ocean Gipsy is as good as Sheherazade, only a bit shorter

Trip to the fair easily, one of my favourite Renaissance tracks.  The epic is my least favourite on a strong album.

Close between the first two.

 

I'll give a pity vote to the Vultures.
