Okay with the revocalized version of "Crime Scene Earth" and a completely new album "Hellblade" both expected out this year, I am getting super pumped and have been listening to my catalog of old Saint albums. With such a big catalog I find my self having a hard time picking one favorite, so this poll will allow you to pick multiple choices if you want.
(yes I intentionally left out the live album(s))

Why, now we can't start a discussion about the Saint Live albums. Very Happy

I voted for three ('cause I'm greedy!)

The Mark is my favourite album by Saint, but Too Late For Living is so close to it that it's got to be included. I also picked "Warrior Of The Son 2004" for the amazing improvement in the whole album. Love all three of those.

Fundy rating time?

Oh, why not!

9 - The Mark
9 - Too Late For Living
9 - Warrior Of The Son 2004
8 - In the Battle
8 - Crime Scene Earth
7 - Times End
7 - Warrior Of The Son 1984
6 - The Perfect Life

I went with three as well (just too hard to pick one) "In the Battle" (first Saint I ever got), "WofS 2004" (for the same reason Fundy said) & "Times End".

On a side note, I remember not being particulary crazy about "The Mark" when it first came out, but after listening to it again lately I have really warmed up to it. While I still wouldn't include it in my top 3, it is a fantastic album.

For early Saint, definitely "Too Late For Living", their absolute pinnacle. As for more recent output, the winner is "The Mark".

From what I have seen those two seem to be the common favorites among long time Saint fans. I have always prefered "Times End" over "Too Late For Living" and still prefer "In the Battle" over "The Mark".
But then I'm seldom accused of having the best tastes. lol!

I've got to go with "In the Battle". I never really got into Saint when I first discovered Christian metal. I had TLFL and TE on cassette but never really liked them. When Saint released ITB, I bought it and thought I'd try it. I loved it! So, then I went and got the Saint 2 disc set that had all 4 of their previous projects on it. ITB is the CD that made me a Saint fan.

ITB for me also. The Mark is good but don't care the "concept" aspect of it dealing with only Revelation. Haven't liked the production on any of the other albums. Despite being a large Priest fan back in the day I've never been able to get into Saint like most everyone else.

Time's End, In The Battle, and WotS 2004. That remake was awesome, and added 2 terrific songs to the original. Time's End has always been my favorite Saint album. In the Battle was a good blend of the old sound with some additional melodic tendencies. Unfortunately, they left that behind on The Mark, which I am not a fan of at all.

I'm withholding judgment on CSE until I hear it with Josh doing ALL of the vocals.

That's funny, I did the same thing. The cool think about that 2 disc set is that at the time I got it (I already had "In the Battle") it meant I had the whole catalog.

The first time I heard Saint ever in my life was around 2000 or so when they released that 2-CD collection that had all their 80's releases on it. I paid $40 for it purely on Saint's reputation from other Christian metalheads. I put it on the CD player, nervous I'd dropped $40 on a clunker. Out came the title track to "Too Late For Living", then Star Pilot, and I was hooked. I couldn't believe I'd never listened to this band before. I've been a Saint fan ever since.

I remember being sooooooooo excited over WOS when it was new. Not much Christian metal back then. It has not worn so well over the years, but the re-recording is fabuloso.
