Symphony X Survivor - V: The New Mythology Suite - Round 1
« on: December 29, 2017, 04:54:01 AM »
Round 1 of the V: The New Mythology Suite survivor. In this division of the survivor, we decide which songs from this album will go on to the finals & consolations. This album placed 3rd in the album survivor, so the 1st to 4th place songs will go on to the finals, with 5th going to consolation, where it'll have an extra chance to accompany it in the finals. For this round, vote for the track you want to go to the finals the least. If you don't care about voting &/or haven't heard all of the albums but still want to know the current results, select "(see results without voting)". You cannot see the results otherwise & once you have voted, you cannot change your vote. Round lasts 24 hours.

So, here's what many people believe to be SX's magnum opus, their peak in creativity, their SFAM moment if you will (which if you think about it there are actually a lot of co-incidences that line up, but anyway). I personally consider both TDWOT & Paradise Lost to be better, but this certainly has its place within the band's catalog. This is also what I feel is their most album-focussed project, & thus, there are a lot of tracks that don't really stand too well alone, but that's good for me since I haven't relistened to this yet (yeah, I'm kinda lazy). Anyway, my first vote goes to the interlude which has the least reason to be isolated, which, you guessed it...

Transcendence



NOTE: I'm referring to "Rediscovery (Segue)" as just "Rediscovery" and "Rediscovery (Part II) - The New Mythology Suite" as just "The New Mythology Suite" because I'm sure very few people consider them to be a joint song, but it wouldn't be consistent for me to combine A Winter's Dream but not Rediscovery. So I'm separating the two in name. Hopefully this clear things up.
