Favorite Virgil album

So guys and gals, which ones (of the listed) are your favorite performances by Virgil so far?
I have included the more drumistic ones for this poll.

I'll be honest, I'm tied between OTV, Live From Oz/Moonbabies, and The Moon is Falling. The latter not so much for Virgil's contribution, but the song 'Confessions' is just beautiful!
I'm such an old romantic.
But overall, OTV!

Yeah, hard decision. most albums have their absolutely legendary moments! the hoekstra albums are genius, (by the way, how do you pronounce this name????!!!!) but overall - OTV!!! I also like the style on that cd, and the overall sound. the sooooo heavy guitars, the riffs, the thundering drumsound (I already know some will and do disagree with me but I can't help, I absolutely love it!!!)

Well, Virgil did some amazing stuff on Moon Babies. His polyrythems on these tracks were amazing and prety complex. The funny thing with this album is the closer you listen to it, the more complex it gets. Try it!

I don't see any Ring of Fire on the poll. There is some good stuff on those albums!!!

I voted for OTV!! I just can't get enough of that album, where as Moonbabies tends to kinda bore me after 100000 listens. I can never get enough of OTV. I think this is because OTV is more diverse than Moonbabies. Other than that, I LOVE The Moon is Falling from Joel Hoekstra, but it's not 'progressive' enough for me. (That Hoekstra name is not hard for me to pronounce at all! It's a very common name here in Holland! )
And the other albums are great too, pure genius!!! But I don't dig them as much as the previous mentioned albums...!

OTV, The Moon is Falling and Moonbabies are standout. Live from Oz for a live album is top notch does not get much better.

That's a Dutch name? so how do you pronounce it ? I HAVE to know finally !!

Well, like I mentioned before, I also LOVE the moon is falling, but what about Undefined? It's not as good, but also killer i think! At least some Donati playing. Most of the songs are not THAT great I think.

Undefined is still on my "to buy" list I'm afraid..

As for the pronounciation.. Well how on earth am I supposed to explain this one?

The H is just H... as in the word "hard" or sth..

the OE are pronounced as the O in the word "Loser".. And the rest shouldn't be too difficult to figure out.

Hope this solves something!

And if this isn't enough, I'll make a soundsample of the pronounciation! (Though I'm afraid it will have to include a drumsolo!)
