    Great list. I would sub GOTN for Lord of Light and TBOS for IESF. Otherwise pretty spot on.

    Ghost of the Navigator just barely missed the cut, in fact I was deciding between that and Lord of Light.

    Hm, I made this list not long after the album came out but I'd say it's still the case. Usually my favorites on albums change after awhile.

    Forostar Conjure the Death Star again

    If I'd make an album like Whooten (in my case to avoid the ranking order! :D) it would look like this, if Virus is allowed (not sure if this is only about album songs or not):

    To be honest, these are (probably) my favourite songs but many of these have long intros so I am not sure if this would flow well as an album.

    Side A:
    The Unbeliever
    Brighter Than a Thousand Suns
    Virus
    Paschendale
    Brave New World

    Side B:
    Isle of Avalon
    Ghost of the Navigator
    Blood on the World's Hands

    Dance of Death
    The Man of Sorrows


    And like this if we don't count Virus:


    Side A:

    The Unbeliever
    Brighter Than a Thousand Suns
    Brave New World
    Paschendale
    Blood on the World's Hands

    Side B:

    Isle of Avalon
    Ghost of the Navigator

    Dance of Death
    Judgement of Heaven
    The Man of Sorrows
