    Simple question. Do you prefer the album or video version of "Final Masquerade"?

    Being that it's my favorite song on the album next to GATS and Rebellion, I personally love the video version a whole lot more because it's a lot more atmospheric and, minus the crying baby, would've been amazing if THAT was on the album.

    In the video, it works pretty great. But it solely as audio is kind of pointless. It doesn't add anything of importance to the song. It doesn't really elevate the song in any way for me.

    I like both versions' intro sections but I like the outro in the album version more.

    I don't watch music videos ever since I saw a scary one. My life hasn't been the same since.
    So I didn't watch the FM video.
    I can;t say anything.

    I like the extended intro of the video version though the alternate ending is a little pointless. Thanks for posting this thread. I would've never known there was a difference since I never really watch music videos.

    The intro and outro don't fade well into the song. Gonna have to go with the album version.

    Video 100%! It's atmospheric and it's what drew me to the song actually. Not the video but the intro and outro. :lol: FM is my favorite song on the album. I can't believe Im saying that.

    FM has been a grower for me. The video is awesome as well. Still prefer the album version though.

    I like the video version because I feel Drawbar would lead into that much more amazingly. Plus the added atmosphere makes it seem as if Joe has much more of a presence on it. But I dunno how I'd feel about the outro on the album. It would make it feel isolated from A Line in the Sand.

    The video gives more an atmospheric feeling than the album version itself in my opinion.
