Protection. Can't say why, it's the only song from the album I particularly like besides Year Of The Rat.

A few minutes ago i listened to "Caprice", i downloaded it from 7digital.
I have to say that it is not very good or special... "The emerald piper" as bonus track is much better in my opinion!

I heard it too the same thing as you think Im thinking !

I didn't have the CD yet!, I've listened only 4 completed songs  and I really loved Year of the Rat  ;D Because I saw the name Louise there haha joking... It's a very great song. Tristania rules  ;)

Hey, excellent idea, I didn't think to buy the track online! Bought it on iTunes just now. Thanx for the nudge, mr TobEND! I'm guessing those SEK 9 is slightly cheaper than importing the japanese Rubicon version... :)

My favorite tracks are Vulture, Exile, Sirens and Illumination :D
But I had to choose only one for the poll, so I chose Sirens, the lyrics describe my feelings towards the world :o

Did anyone get the lyrics of Caprice? It's a crime that this song isn't in the album! The same for Emerald Piper as only a bonus track.

...buy the version where Emerald is featured ;)

i seriously wonder if there's really the need to make a "normal" version, because i can't imagine someone buying that one instead of the one with some more tracks, even if the latter costs one or two euros more - please note, a general consideration, NOT a critic to you, DarkOwl!

I understand what you said, Disgraced. I Said that because I dont know which version will be available here in Brazil. Ashes and Illumination in Brazilian versions include bonus tracks (The Gate and In The Wake), but I have no information yet about Rubicon. I hope the version includes Emerald Piper. Otherwise, to get a version with bonus tracks, I would have to import one.

After about three listens (from back to finish) I have to say Protection. It's just so well-arranged and executed.
The beauty-and-the-beast-duet was also excellent - reminded me of the ol' days  ;D

Well, I'm not going to officially vote until I've had many more listens and have listened to Caprice (my favorite song on Illumination was In The Wake, so this could be a favorite as well), but at the moment it is Exile.

But holding off my vote for now

Jesus, I downloaded iTunes, made an account with the store, and it turns out I have to buy the entire album from them in mp3 in order to get Caprice.  >:( Forget it. Maybe it will turn up as an individual download from Amazon.jp.

It sounds pretty good from the preview, though.

That's strange, I was able to purchase only Caprice. Maybe iTunes has different conditions in different countries? I just clicked the album in iTunes, got the full list of songs, where each track has a "buy me" button.  Got Rubicon for SEK 9, roughly 1 euro. Good deal. :)

I found more info about it here.

Hopefully I will find some sort of workaround.
