    Always liked this band, at least the stuff I am familiar with. I lost interest with "Streets", but I've since looked up a few (rather great) tracks on later albums as well. However, judging by their stuff between "Sirens" and "Gutter Ballet", I always thought Savatage was a song-band rather than an album-band. They've got several great songs on each release, yet at the same time there are always a few filler or plain out boring cuts (yes, I am looking at you "Fight For The Rock"). "Hall Of The Mountain King" is the only album (1983-1991) which I find to be relatively master-crafted throughout its whole run.

    Just listening to "Wake of Magellan". Oh Lord, they were great, a reunion for another output would blow my mind...
