Which one do you prefer? The vocals are on both are completely mind blowing. You have Rogers epic screams on the first and Freds falsetto on the second. You have the fuzzy guitar outro on the first and the ultra heavy bass line on the second. Its a close call to me.

Same here really.
Although, I favour more towards revisited. It's more complete.

In the Lap of the Gods, the former.. The vocal is UNBELIEVABLE. But the revisited is 99.999999999% as good as the former.

I'm partial to '..Revisited' but I love both :) I noticed they don't refer to it as 'revisited' for shows like Wembley even though that's the version they played.

aargh, don't do this to me.... I've asked myself this question too many times. I'm not sure which one I prefer. But I think "revisited" is my favourite. the woo woo lalala part blows my mind. but offcourse the first ITLOTG has the screams. I love them.

Close, but I think the "non-revisited" one wins. Those high vocals are great.

I prefer the not-revisited one. It's got like the best intro ever, also those screams from Roger are amazing, while the revisited one is a) so gay in the lead vocal, b) so repetitive in the chorus


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I always listen to Now I'm Here when I get out of the shower in the morning, and have to sprint in order to keep "LOTG" from hurting my newly-awoken eardrums.

I much prefer "Revisited" because you can sing it over and over again all day long.

I prefer the original one. I LOVE the intro with that mistic and apocaliptic atmosphere, hehe.

What's wrong with a gay vocal?
