Well, it seems that there’s life after Tolkki huh! Is that possible though? But let’s take things right from the start. Tolkki is Stratovarius and vice versa, let’s be clear! I can’t tell if leaving his brainchild to Kotipelto and disappearing was the right thing to do or not. Possibly when he finds his inner peace someday, he will be back for, in truth to be told, he made Stratovarius the second best European metal band, after Helloween of course, and “Dreamspace” is the band’s best work to date. He didn’t manage to beat that album neither with “Fourth Dimension” (which introduced Timo Kotipelto) nor with “Episode” even though they both came very close.
