Hi,
 
I'm not allowed to vote in these polls for some reason, but I sure wish "Note" by Beardfish were included.

I only know one of those listed, and I can't think of any others, but I do love the "Felicité Thösz" suite, so I gave it a  vote.  Magma commonly beats the competition for me.

From this list, Share the World With Me, easily the best from Sceneries.
 As for your suggestions, many of them don't meet my criteria. Nevertheless, thank you!
 
My favourite Epic of the year 2012 is Motorpsycho & Stĺle Storlřkken's "Through the Veil". Really timeless music!Thumbs Up

"Guardian Angel" by Galahad, although the chorus is a bit cheesy, I can not get it out of my head.

Criteria to inclusion:
  • Corresponding album with minimum number of ratings: 50
  • Minimum average rating value: 4.00
  • If some album has more than 1 Epic, I've picked the longest one

I believe, if Big Big Train have been stretched just slightly some of their songs on the album of the year, this song would surely win.Wink
