Probably Marshall Law's finest hour overall, 1993's Power Game featured some of the sharpest, smartest, most memorable tunes of the group's ill-appreciated career. Too heavy for traditional metal, too lightweight for power metal, songs like "Chain of Youth," "Another Generation," and the especially memorable "Searching for Paradise" nevertheless sounded exactly suited to the band's particular talents.

Influence and plagiarism are quite different things, after all, and Power Game is most certainly steeped in the first, not the second.
