After repeatedly listening to all of their albums recently, I have to go with their album Fire Of Unknown Origin as my personal favorite. "Burnin' For You" is still an instant classic that (despite the constant radio play and has seemingly played to death) sucks the average listener in and doesn't let go. Songs like the marching of "Veteran Of The Psychic Wars" and catchiness of "Joan Crawford" only adds to the album's charm. My favorite track on the album "Vengeance (The Pact)" has a stirring / hypnotic feel to it with a pulsing keyboard and vocals, that at times sounds not to far off from some of King Diamond's later mid-80's offerings. Not to mention that the bulk of these songs were supposed to be made as part of THE soundtrack to the animated film Heavy Metal, instead only one song was culled for the final official soundtrack.
