So which is your favorite Epica relase and why? (I haven't put Design Your Universe since it hasn't been relased yet)
-----------------------------------------------------------
My personal favorite is The Phantom Agony,mostly because it has the most of my favorite songs,the best lyrics(although I really love the ones from The Divine Conspiracy aswell),and it has that "epic" feeling.The orchestration is very complex and it blends perfectly with the heavy guitars and bass.Simone isn;t at her best,true but I won't really see her singing in her "sweet" voice in such an album with a dramatic atmosphere.

Secondly I would totally choose The Divine Conspiracy I love the whole concept of it,and I like it how they made it heavier than the previous relases.

The 3rd place for me it's a tie between The Score and Consign To Oblivion.Musically The Score is so beautiful,I really love the orchestral arrangements on it.But the lack of the vocals,guitars,drums,and bass,makes it less epic in some way.I mean i love classical music,but Epica is a metal band,and The Score seems just a classical music album,but I still love it to death .Consign To Oblivion,is probably the one which has the most orchestration and choir.Simone's voice is better jhan in The Phantom Agony,way more versatility.I kind of missed Mark's grunts here,but on the other hand,Consign To Oblivion(the final track) the main vocals are his grunts,which tends to be a bit diffrent than the whole CTO atmosphere


Overall I love all the albums of course,but I think DYU will take the first place soon

Liz Simone was 17 when they recorded TPA not 21 Wink

My favourite is TDC, DYU soon to be haha
I cant stand CTO because of the lack of metal, the guitar sound is too polished!

Definately TDC! Though like Eetu said, it's going to be DYU soon, I know it! Razz
But TDC is just perfect. I love the fact they became more heavier, more metalish. Wink And, with more grunts. Very Happy

I adore all four of them, but TDC comes closer as my favourite EPICA album, I suppose.

^Yay!!

Ok so I finally added DYU on the list

To be honest I think DYU is their best album so far.I can't say they chaged much as or me it sounds like a mix between the previous three albums(i mean in elemnts such as TPA-ish atmosphere,CTO-ish choir and TSC-ish guitar sound)but more,powerful,bombastic,epic..and the fresh guiar solos (cherry on the top ) and Simone's vocals have improoved a lot

But still I can't leave my love for TPA at all.In atmospheric terms it still remains my favorite,I cannot explain but I love everything about it.I'm not a huge fan of Sim's vocals or Mark's grunting there,but still I cannot imagine it in any other way.

But I shall shut up because I voted for DYU anyway

But I still love both equally<3

Each album is unique, and I love them all. But DYU has to be my new fav! New fresh energetic sound with lots of improvement, and still you hear it's Epica. I also love the lyrics. DYU is already helping me a lot and it might become my ALL TIME fav album!! So I'm gonna change my vote right now. Wink

It is hard to decide but my favorite is DYU. They have improved their music through years and DYU is the proof. It is by far their richest album with progressive elements, guitar solos, Mark's improved grunts, Simone's amazing voice etc. TPA is my favorite after DYU.

Hmmm, it's really hard to choose their best album, because I like each of them most. But I think that I will vote for The Phantom Agony or Dresign Your Universe, but I need a bit more time to think about it.

Well, TPA is amazing. I love not only the music but alo lyrics. One of them, titled Facade of Reality, says „People created religious inventions to give their lives a glimmer of hope and to ease their fear of dying” and although that I believe in God and that I'm just sure that when I die, I'll go to heaven or hell, I completely agree with that. See, most of us are afraid of death. Mostly, because of that we don't know what happens with us after our death. Moreover we just can't understand how can we finish one life and come in completely different existance, we just can't imagine that. So because of our fear and restriction we create many religions based mostly on existance after existance. When we believed in God who gaves us eternal life we „give our lives a glimmer of hope and ease our fear of dying”. We also should remember that it lie in our nature, to looking for God. Ok, back on topic. TPA is the first album of Epica that I've ever heard and Cry for the Moons song is also the ver first song. I love every sound frm this album and I even can't pointmy favourite song. When I say Sensorium, I think "or maybe Run for a Fall". Its really difficult.

Design you Universe is another my favourite album of them. I can't choose my favourite composition again but I can point the song which I like less this time. It's White Waters, the most boring song for me. Although I love the voices and also moving lyrics It makes me wanna sleep, unfortnately

Now, I am going to wait for their new album and I hope that it will be a such good record that I'll say that this one is my vry favourite and my problems with choose the best between TPA and DYU will be just finished.

The Divine Conspiracy <3
It will always have a special place in my heart. There's something about it that's so....i can't find words to describe it. Something's there for me that is absent when i listen to Design Your Universe (that album's amazing too!!)
