Some interesting choices, and it's a diverse compilation. I would have replaced Endless Forms with a more seminal track from EMFB such as Shudder Before the Beautiful or Weak Fantasy or two or three other... Also, DCOW in second place? Personally I would have saved a spot for Gethsemane or Stargazers, and also 7 Days to the Wolves. But overall a nice selection.

What other song would be missing from your top 20?
