All in all, not a bad list, every one of these except the Nightwish album (not an old Nightwish fan) are great records.

My personal top 10 for "traditional" power metal, unranked, would look something like this:

Stratovarius - Visions
Edguy - Hellfire Club
Edguy - Mandrake
Blind Guardian - Imaginations From the Other Side
Sonata Arctica - Silence
Gamma Ray - land of the Free
Gamma Ray - Somewhere Out in Space
Dungeon - Resurrection
Nocturnal Rites - Grand Illusion
Masterplan - Masterplan
Primal Fear - Seven Seals
... alright, 11.

100% off the top of my head. I'll do a prog metal and traditional/classic metal list later.
