    ^^I've only listened to it once so far MP, but Tobias never disappoints.

    Sooty have you ever listened to his other band,,,Edguy?

    I have LG! I remember the thread that was up for that band! :grinthumb

    I really love this album. I don't know what it is but this one works as a whole better than any other one I've heard by them. This track has been added as another favorite:

    Savior In The Clockwork


    Can anyone do me a favor. I looked and it has three notable vocalist included on this track including one from Rainbow, one from Saxon and one from Helloween. The song seems pretty seamless so can anyone give me an idea where each vocalist is coming in? :)

    ^^MP might know but I've only listened to the new Avantasia album once Sooty but next time I listen to that track I'll pay attention and see if I can tell who's singing what part.

    Definitely Bill Byford(Saxon) at the 7+ minute mark.

    Did you not like it as well LG. It figures the one I like is probably too pop rock for you and some of it's core fans! :oyea:

    ^^I like everything Tobias has done both with Edguy and his mellow side Avantasia Sooty.

    I like the song, just finished listening to it and spotted Biff's part around the 7 minute mark.;)

    Oh cool! If anything Tobias knows how to collaborate with so many different styles of vocalist and make it work. It's no wonder so many names want to work with him. :grinthumb

    Indeed, and he was about 17 I think when he got started in music, a prodigy almost.;)

    Here you go Sooty on that track :grinthumb

    Joe Lyn Turner (Rainbow)
    I envision how you lie awake and agonise
    Over ways to bear your day just every night
    Re-alignment you're in need of so imploringly
    It's the pace that we'll maintain for you

    Oh every moment everybody's gonna think alike
    Every second will be seized
    While every in between we'll erase
    To take the tangle from their memory
    Maximising one and all for you

    Now into line bring them peace of mind
    Mind by mind
    Se the pace for all mankind
    Let us take away the spaces
    In between their given time

    (Tobias)
    Time to run!
    Savior in the clockwork tell me
    For how long will I wait on the grind
    Time flies on
    (Time will fly on)
    Savior in the clockwork take me back inside
    In between the time

    Now am I half asleep or half unconscious,
    Half 'adream'?
    I can't move as I am stuck in bright lucidity
    I can feel and hear and see
    But I won't comprehend
    I see fire that I won't decipher

    I see giant evil tower to a blackened sky
    I feel blessed with evidence of what I can't define
    Swinging blade of the lowering perpendicular
    I see clarity I won't remember

    Do I dream
    Is it only fantasy and matter just a thought I see
    And time is all they need to seal away eternity

    Time to run!
    Savior in the clockwork tell me
    For how long will I wait on the grind
    Time flies on
    (Time will fly on)
    Savior in the clockwork take me back inside
    In between the time

    Biff Byford (Saxon)
    You pry into a world too far above
    Your head up in the haze
    (Tobias)
    Journey to the birth of the first sun
    Into the black womb of space
    Biff Byford (Saxon)
    Father primal space oh yeah
    Who's drawn the light…

    (Tobias)
    Standing at the door to epiphanic realisation
    A journey to the centre of forever
    To the mystery of creation

    Biff Byford (Saxon)
    Don't you hear the voice: I'm with you
    I'm everywhere and real
    You can see me, you can hear me without credence
    I'm what your hands can feel

    (Tobias)
    God, I feel I've been away too long
    I feel like I've been dreaming

    Biff Byford (Saxon)
    If you'd open up your door to explanation
    You would hear the voice of reason screaming

    (Tobias)
    I've seen the ocean swallow the ancient harmony
    Biff Byford (Saxon)
    And I've seen belief and craving swallow sanity

    (Tobias)
    I feel my hand is led to ink between the lines
    Biff Byford (Saxon)
    Tall stories legendising: figments of the lie

    (Tobias)
    At crack of dawn hazy remains above my mind
    Michael Kiske (Ex elloween)
    Raise your mind
    (Tobias)
    I scribble down those icons that I can't define
    Will they demand account as I'd demand myself
    Michael Kiske (Ex elloween)
    Raise your mind
    (Tobias)
    I'll never testify what no man comprehends

    Michael Kiske (Ex elloween)
    And they will tear to pieces what they can't define
    (Tobias)
    Raise your mind
    Biff Byford (Saxon)
    If you don't follow your self- preservation drive
    Michael Kiske (Ex elloween)
    They'll crucify the one who won't affiliate
    (Tobias)
    Raise your mind
    Biff Byford (Saxon)
    But decorate the children of their own ego's way

    Biff Byford (Saxon)
    Time to run savior in the clockwork
    (Tobias)
    Tell me for how long will I wait on the grind
    Biff Byford (Saxon)
    Time flies on
    (time will fly on)
    Savior in the clockwork

    (Tobias)
    Take me back inside
    In between the time
    Time to run!
    Savior in the clockwork tell me
    For how long will I wait on the grind
    Time flies on
    (Time will fly on)
    Savior in the clockwork take me back inside
    In between the time
