Tobias Sammet somehow manages to produce extremely consistent albums. If you have listened to one of his albums, and liked it, you'll probably enjoy most of everything else he does on the whole. With most bands I'll like a few of their songs, or one of their albums, and that'll be it. With Tobi, it's pretty much the other way around. That isn't to say he's not flexible, it manages to stay fresh, in my opinion. My favorite tracks from Angel of Babylon include "Stargazers", "Down in the Dark", "Alone I Remember", and "Promised Land". From Wicked Symphony, they include "Wicked Symphony", "Blizzard on a Broken Mirror", "Runaway Train", and "Black Wings".
I don't know if my copy was a fluke, but there are a variety of errors on the disc for Angel of Babylon. Nearly every song on the disc had a skip at the end that shouldn't have been there, and then repeated the last few seconds. It made it practically impossible to listen to, so I had to find a good recording of it from another source. I don't know if perhaps my copy was just messed up, or if it might have been the seller doing something gimmicky, but just thought I'd say that because it was frustrating.
