hey Maiden33, u got any suggestions on what to pick up from this band.
Haha, I like the fact that I am the Savatage authority here.

Well it's more of a question of personal preference than anything else.

In my opinion there are four "essential" Savatage albums:
Streets, Edge of Thorns, Handful of Rain, and Gutter Ballet. Regardless of whether you're a fan of the earlier stuff or the later stuff, those albums are must-hear stuff.

What kind of songs have you been listening to?

If you're into the heavy Jon Oliva stuff, Hall of the Mountain King and Power of the Night are the two seminal albums of that stuff. If you're into the more experimental stuff, Streets and Gutter Ballet for sure. If you're into Zak's stuff, all 4 albums are worth checking out. It's a complex beast to tackle because they've released a lot of amazing material throughout 11 studio albums, there's a lot of stuff to get to.
Let me know what you've heard thus far and I'll tell you where I suggest you go.

To Bloodcurse: Were you actually at this show? I'm assuming.
