I don’t think the intro is that similar to The Talisman, but that riff is definitely copy-paste The Book of Souls. I had this album on in the background while studying and for a split second really believed I accidentally hit shuffle and was listening to TBoS.
This is far and away the best aged album of theirs for me. I thought it was very middle-of-the-road for them. Not bad but not outstanding. However, as the years creep by, TFF has grown on me. Dare I say I put it above AMOLAD, which is my favorite reunion album and my second favorite album of...

A Satisfied Mind
I Shall Be Released
Just Like a Woman (debatable, but I think he gets it by just a smidge)
Chinese Democracy-era Guns N' Roses did an absolutely...

4. Stand Inside Your Love

This one was tough because they have so many interesting textures, and I find it hard to prioritize their best vs most...
