The Top Ten
I am always torn between The Unholy and Hounds but I had to put one of them at #1. By the way, this album is very good and basically there are no bad songs. - Metal_Treasure
It has 3 solos by Criss Oliva and some of the best vocals by Jon. A very intense song. I love it.
Jon Oliva is one of the most emotional metal singers and this song proves it. - Metal_Treasure
A very interesting song to me - there are some oriental influences, strong riff, laughs in the intro (by Jon). - Metal_Treasure
Definitely an interesting song with a memorable riff and great aggressive vocals by Jon Oliva. - Metal_Treasure
Despite the "love" title, the song isn't a love ballad and is heavier than you may conclude judging by the title. It's a fast paced song with angry gritty vocals and screams. - Metal_Treasure
I know this is the most popular song on this album but the main riff sounds similar to Iron Maiden's Hallowed Be Thy Name and I can't put this song higher than this.
Other than that, the song is really great - memorable and long piano intro, flawless vocals, pleasant classically-inspired solo, etc. - Metal_Treasure
A power ballad I like very much. - Metal_Treasure
An emotional slow paced song - Metal_Treasure
A soft instrumental (2:56) with a classical orchestration in the 2nd half. - Metal_Treasure
A very soft guitar instrumental (2:56) - Metal_Treasure
