  Handful Of Rain - one of the greatest Savatage songs

  This is the first Progressive metal album I fell in love, instead of another snooze.... like Opeth. "Chance" and "Symmetry" are outstanding.

Rating: 10 For those that are interested, there is a (rare) uncut version of the song Handful of Rain. Has an extra verse in the beginning. Its on youtube here:

Not sure if it was ever released on any record. It didn't come with my copy of Handful of Rain.

That's pretty cool. Where was that version released?

I've always felt this was somewhat of underrated album. There's some dips in quality here and there but overall it's very enjoyable and way more consistent than Edge Of Thorns.

Rating: 10 This is a masterpiece, by an outstanding band.
It is the best Savatage album for me (Streets closely following).
It has some weaker songs but there are also three of my all-time fav prog metal songs to find here (Chance, Castles burning and Alone you breathe).
The excellent chorus on Chance they kind of managed to do again with their brilliant Morphine child on PAM.
These two epic opuses being my fav Savatage songs.
