Why the Hollywood Undead album cover? - Songsta41
This song is just incredibly moving. The entire Paradise Lost album is epic!
Paradise Lost, Paradise Lost... incredible. I love the chorus, its just beautiful
Love its melody, lyrics and every thing... A masterpiece... An essence of great music, compressed into a 6 minute song... Love itV 3 Comments
Whoever did not vote for this song is not a true Symphony X fan! This is an absolute masterpiece and one of my favourite songs ever along with Dream Theater's Octavarium and A Change Of Seasons.
This song has everything you want a song to have, Divine wings of tragedy has some unnecessary parts but this does not... You listen the song through and you wont ever get bored, prog in its best ways!
This song is ultimately twenty four minutes off epicness... I gotta say, The Divine Wings Of Tragedy is brilliant, but The Odyssey does it for me.
Fact this song should be number, one on the list of Symphony X's greatest songs. The Odyssey should be on the top five greatest things humanity has ever accomplished in my opinion.V 9 Comments
Wow! This song truly shows the diverse nature of Symphony X. It's a gentle ballad, just voice and piano, then gradually builds toa truly epic metal song. Fantastic musicianship, the guitars and keyboards work beautifully, throughout this magnificent piece, Allen's voice is incredible, showing sensitivity and emotion. Easily their best song (yes, even better than their other epic The Odyssey).
From their new album, a beautiful ballad with a really catchy chorus! It rivals the song "Paradise Lost" in epicness - petrucci75hammet
Symphony X shows how to do it... Whit every single song
But "when all is lost" is crown JeWeLL. Much thanks to russell allen and michael romeo... And the other guys
This song is just perfect.V 3 Comments
This song is truly genius. The six and a half minute instrumental section is one of the most ridiculously progressive things they've ever done, and Russell Allen's vocals are at their peak. It should be in the top 5, at least.
How this long epic is not on the list or simply not even number 1 is beyond my understanding? Well, someone has to bring it up. This song = greatest 20 minutes in music! - metalmaiden
Just... a beauty. What a song! Progressive at times, hard-hitting at others, sometimes both - just amazing!
This one's their Bohemian Rhapsody! One word: EPIC!V 1 Comment
A Mix of heaviness, beauty and power. I love how they mixed progressive, thrash and power metal in one song. Easily their best.
An excellent mix of a variety of genres. Catchy, heavy, and melodic.
"How to Start an Album". By Symphony X. Others should learn from this mastery. Best when paired with the epic intro track, "Oculus Ex Inferni".
Just simply amazing. I had the same experience listening to this song as I did when I first listened to metropolis part 1 when I was first getting in to dream theater. Simply amazing.
By far, the best prog rock song of all time. I am a huge fan of symphony x, dream theater, circus maximus, opeth, adagio, and star one. This is one of my favorite prog anthems ever.
I Can't believe this song isn't the first one! It's obviously their best one, one of the most epic prog songs all time!
This song captures the essence of fantasy itself without making you cringe, wowing the listener all the way through. One of the greatest metal songs of all time. - Caleb9000
Such a beautiful song- from the soft, haunting intro, to the epic chorus, and the amazing guitar solo
The melodies in this song are insaneV 2 Comments
What the heck? Why is this all the way at the bottom? Come on this song is really good! The chorus is amazing!
A great place to start for the uninformed Symphony X listener! - zrockin
From technical point of view is amazing
Romeo's tapping here on the guitar solo is legendary. No tapping has been more melodic than that sus2 major and minor chord successions. It's by far the best symphony x song in terms of technicality and melodicaly
Guitar riffs on this masterpiece, show why Michael Romeo is one of the best! - zrockin
Should be Top 5 Symphomy X song. At least better than the Top 40 Pop Song, "Without You".
Top 5 best song from SX, also the best Alice in Wonderland-themed song ever. Allen sings with such emotion and the musical changes make this an epic SX song.
Was nothing less than shocked seeing Egypt so low.
It's one of the best songs I know in Prog Metal
Amazingly epic heavy song with not ONE but TWO shredding guitar solos from Romeo, really catchy chorus too. One of the best Iconoclast songs for sure! - petrucci75hammetV 1 Comment
The best yet from (almost) the best ever. Only Gamma Ray beat this band for me, and this is SX's greatest song off their greatest album. Yet.V 1 Comment
Still their best song in my humble opinion, but it is the first song I ever heard of theirs, so probably has something to do with it. It is an excellent song, technically proficient and as written before, the guitar work is their stamp, kind of like the guitar intro from Cowboys From Hell for Pantera, just saying! - zrockin
The guitar part in this song is one of the most amazing things I've ever heard in my life. The rest of the song is good too.
It's fast and well written, this is Thomas Miller's best song. In my opinion
A great semi-ballad off their upcoming new album, evidence that there has been no drop in quality after a 4-year wait! - petrucci75hammet
I wish I would have written this song! Hands down one of their most beautifully written. Maybe not the most technical, but they're allowed to have some simpler songs in their playbook! - zrockin
A nice ballad (almost) from Underworld. Nice to hear Russel Allen actually sing again after his five year tenure with Adrenaline Mob. - IronSabbathPriestV 1 Comment
Heavy riffs and what a chorus!
Very powerful start, great vocals, guitar is amazing(! ).
Love this CD, awesome song here.
