Best Illumination Song
« on: 24 January 2007, 19:59:46 »

Choose the song you like best from the new album!

For now, my favourite one is Open Ground... but maybe in the future, this option will change...!

I voted for Lotus but I love Mercyside also and I`m pretty sure I`ll be changing my mind on that matter often since all of them are great.

After two days listening nonstop to the album, my favourites are "Deadlands" and "Destination Departure" ... but perhaps I will change my opinion after some time, was the same with ashes...

I can't decide yet, even though I've been listening to the album for over a month now. All the songs are great! The more I listen the more I like them. At this stage, my favourites are The Ravens, Deadlands and In the Wake...


I'll come back and vote later.  ;)

After listening to Illumination for a month now, it is still (and always have been) The Ravens for me :)

Down is the best for me. Sanguine Sky is a close second place, and Lotus is in third.

Though, none of those three are that far ahead of the other tracks - because all the tracks are good. Illumination has gone down for me as being one of the small handful of albums made in the last ten years or so where every single track is good. So many albums made in the last few years have a couple of good songs (for singles) then just boring filler for the rest of the album, but with Illumination (and in fact, all of Tristania's albums so far), every single track is good. In a way, it seems a bit unfair to me to pick a favourite track or name certain tracks as being better than others, because really, they all deserve praise.

My favourite is "Deadlands" from far away though I like "The Ravens" and "Mercyside" a lot. ;D
I didn't get the bonus track version of Illumination. Is there any way that I could listen to "In the Wake"? ???

Down is full of yummyness. :)

Haha, I feel hyper today.

I don't often dance to my music, let alone Tristania >.> They're really not a dancing band for me, just a rock out hard one.  :D

^ I didn't used to like Sacrilege, but it has definitely grown on me.  :D  As my friend says "OMF SEXY DRUMS!"  XDDD  Sexy drums indeed.

My favourite is Deadlands.  It's a very emotional song for me.  :)
If I could choose a 2nd favourite and third, they'd be "Sanguine Sky" and "The Ravens".

*resists urge to pick whole album*

I'm a rhythm-nut, and the most rhythmic song is Sacrilege. ;)

My favorite right now is Destination Departure, because of the emotions in the song.
Second is The Ravens because I like the bombastic duet between both vocalists. Also I like Sacrilege, because it stays in my head.
