My fave song from him - vox in the intro and the chorus are just what I need to hear. And his sustain of about 13 seconds is awesome. - Metal_Treasure

5 Flight Of Torek - Aina

Can you believe, Tobi sings jazz in the middle of a metal song and sounds amazing! (3:25-4:25).
By the way I know nothing about this band (Aina). I mean Tobi sang for many lesser known bands and people are not aware of his full vocal potential. - Metal_Treasure

Tobias Sammet just doesn't have bad vocal performances and it was difficult to select only 10 songs. - Metal_Treasure

15 Lay All Your Love On Me - Avantasia Lay All Your Love On Me - Avantasia

I love how he sings the chorus to this songs especially the end - germshep24
