Favorite Album By My Favorite Bands

In progress, subject to change.

Title says it all really, I made an attempt to pick my favorite album from each of my favorite bands. I did not take into account the number of albums released by each band, and I did not take into account how many albums I've got by each band. Difficult to pick just one album by most of these giants! (Bands are listed alphabetically)

1. Angra - Temple Of Shadows
2. Avantasia - The Mystery Of Time
3. Axel Rudi Pell - Mystica
4. Axxis - Utopia
5. Ayreon - 01011001

My "Favorite (Male) Singers" List

In progress and subject to change. I narrowed it down to as few as I could and it basically stops with these 12 (with the top 6 being the only ones that would "always" remain, while the bottom 6 could be subjected to change on a regular basis). If I had included any more singers, I'd have to do a top 30 or something to make it fair. These are, more or less, my all-time favorite (male) singers. Each is represented by a time-period (according to studio albums) of their voice that certifies them among my favorites and also one album (because of how they use their vocals in that album, because of the actual sound of their vocals in that album's production, etc) having some of their finest performances in my opinion.

1. Hansi Kürsch [Blind Guardian, Demons & Wizards] - 1999 - 2012 (Demons & Wizards - "Touched By The Crimson King")
2. Russell Allen [Symphony X, Allen/Lande, Star One] - 2002 - 2013 (Symphony X - "The Odyssey")
3. Matthew Barlow [Ashes Of Ares, ex-Iced Earth, ex-Pyramaze] - 2001 - 2008 (Iced Earth - "The Crucible Of Man")
4. Tommy Karevik [Seventh Wonder, Kamelot] - 2006 - 2013 (Seventh Wonder - "Mercy Falls")
5. Michelle Luppi [Secret Sphere, ex-Vision Divine] - 2003 - 2012 (Secret Sphere - "Portrait Of A Dying Heart")
