    Horror Show is good yes but not their best by any means.

    I haven't heard the remastered version TBH. I started listening to Iced Earth early in their career and loved the original version so I never saw any reason to replace it with the newer version. I don't really care for the newer artwork.

    ^^Not much to add to DKW's thorough list, I have every album IE has released myself and although I know Wolf doesn't like Ripper that much, "The Glorious Burden" has moved into my top 5 IE pantheon of albums now.

    Here's a good set for you to collect Harkat.

    Slave To The Dark.

    ^^It's a good starter set for a new fan of the band.:D

    If you do like a band a lot these sets are cost effective, usually cheaper than buying individual albums...but I understand if you pick away at them over time.

    It sure is a nice looking edition though.:bow:

    Good band. They've been through quite a bit of line-up changes but I liked them best with Tim Owens on vocals (Judas Priest).

    Matt Barlow will always be my favorite, but unlike a lot of fans I thought Ripper did very well when he was in IE.

    Now that Barlow is leaving(or left) after their current tour I will be curious how the replacement does...I remember John mentioned who they picked but can't remember his name....:think:

    Re: Iced Earth

    I think my favorite song by IE would have to be the power ballad I Died For You. I'm sure some metal purist/junkie would tell me to blow the "power ballad" label out my ass, but oh well... it really is power ballady to me (something I usually love).

    I like both the studio version as well as the Live in Athens version.

    As long as you like a few IE songs that's good enough for me. They are probably my favorite American power metal band, I am just a little sad that Matt is leaving again.

    I only have a couple of their CDs other than Live in Athens. I like both the early stuff and the couple that Owens did with them. They are definitely a good band. I should own more, but just don't.
