Favorite album intro's? I've been prone to, and I'm probably not the only one, to skip the intro track half of of the time I listen to an album cause I just want the meat of the metal straight away cause I can be an impatient cunt. But sometimes there are those intro's that you would never pass up cause they just fucking rule, dude.

One of my favorites is from Dokken's Tooth and Nail. Such an epic little introduction with killer dark keyboards and a blazing display of George Lynch's razor sharp guitar tone which then leads into the turbo charged trail blazing night rager of a track that is the album title, Tooth and Nail, so killer!
