Iced Earth have been one of my favorite bands for a LOOOOONG time so I figured I'd throw this question out to the H.H. 'banger community ... which is the best CD in their catalog? They've had a lot of different singers and musicians pass thru the ranks over the years, showcasing a lot of different styles and moods. My pick: SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES, although THE GLORIOUS BURDEN is a close second and the under-rated BURNT OFFERINGS ranks highly as well.

 

By the way, before anybody sez "You forgot 'Days of Purgatory!', I left that one off the list since it is, essentially, a compilation album of previously released material, even if it *was* doctored up in the studio with new vocals. So there. It's my poll, I make the rules here. :)

Nice pick Stormspell... I understand that Jon Schaffer absolutely HATES that album, but I really dig it and I guess it's more of a cult item amongst some fans. When I saw I.E. on the Horror Show tour in 2002, BURNT OFFERINGS was the only album that wasn't represented in the set, they played stuff off of everything else but skipped BURNT OFFERINGS. I was a lil' disappointed

Ha, I got lucky cuz I was introduced to I.E. with the first album, just a little bit late. It was probably '95 or so and I found it at a Record & CD swap meet for two bucks. (! best two bucks I ever spent!) It was in a big milk crate full of death metal CDs, all still in the old long boxes, but I'd read about Iced Earth in a couple of zines so I figured I'd give them a shot. THE DARK SAGA came out a few months after that so I was well and truly hooked from then on. The rest is history!!

Hey Freddy I think it's time for a Jag Panzer poll.

 

Good idea, Heaven & Hell! Watch this space cuz I'll whip one up when I have a minute (unless you want to take that one?)

How about an Anthrax poll- Bush vs Belladona. My vote's with Bush.

I don't think we've done a Helloween poll either.

    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor.
