I voted for My Lost Lenore, though I like the other ones as well. Very powerful melodic introduction at the beginning. When I play the CD , immediately after Angellore my mother begins humming it . It's her favourite Tristania song :D

i love all of them to be honest... just took one.. :)

hmm... my mother doesn't like such musik... my dad likes most of it as long as there aren't any growls... so... Tristania is nothing for him.. :)

But Schandmaul, Nightwish, In Extremo, Within Temptation and so are no problem.. :)

Altough this is the least favourite of my Tristania albums, I'd vote for "My Lost Lenore".

It's strange but i like many first albums of a band for their atmosphere which disappears later... :)

Yes, it seems the first albums always carry some true atmosphere that seems to be lost later. I've had many disappointments from bands, whose older  stuff I liked( Theatre of Tragedy, the latest Amorphis...)

Probably they get too much money for the production and so on...

They always say the change has been inevitable, and that it was their natural development. I agree that it's almost impossible( with few exceptions) to make one and the same album again and again, but I think it's better not to continue if they can't make anything valuable after that.

Note: I don't speak about Tristania

Yes...
I don't have problems with the development of Tristania, I like all of their albums...

I just wondered why so many debut albums have this special atmosphere...

And what could possibly be the conclusion? Too much mixing and electronics spoil the album( not it's quality, but the value for the fans)? :rolleyes:

I guess first albums are often the results of many years of music evolution. I mean let's say band record their first album and the members have 25 years old and they're wrinting songs since they were 18 or 19. It's many years of music creation. So after that, the second record come usually 2 years later. The process of writing the songs, make them evolved and living with them is way shorter...

I hope I'm clear,  I'm not sure... Oh well...  B)

I voted for Pale Enchantress. Tiamat are another band worth mentioning that lost their touch later on through "developement".

Not all bands start off with a special atmosphere.  Tiamat was just mentioned and Therion well they started off... well different you could say for example!!  :P

On the subject at hand I have to go with Pale Enchantress too.  I never knew *My Lost Lenore* was so big but its a great choice in my opinion.  I agree the introduction is excellent.  My 3rd favorite on the album.  Its so hard because the more I here Widows Weeds the more I realize each song(non intro-outro) is amazing.

One of the bands that lost its goal is Lacrimas Profundere
the first 3 albums and especially the  3rd was the most beautiful sad album i've ever heard, now they are some what of a pop band

I would call Lacrimas Profundere a rock type band now with still a slight bit of gothic influence still hanging on but not much (mostly in the vocals).

Apparently Lacrimas consider themselves more of a Rock n Sad band???  Which is alright fusing classic rock elements with slight gothic feel with the vocals.  Its not metal, but you could do alot worse.  Better too though.

Whatever the case it's clear that the Memorandum days are gone for them, which is sad in itself.
