The Top Ten

1 Morphine Child

This is my #1 song by Savatage, not only from this album. Epic, emotional.
It's 10:12 minutes long but I wouldn't throw out a single note. - Metal_Treasure

2 Commissar
3 Drive
4 Surrender

The riff is awesome and I think Bon Jovi ripped it off for their 2007 song 'We Got It Going On'. Sounds very similar to me. - Metal_Treasure
