Liszt's Mephisto Waltz

Geez.

Mephisto Waltz No. 1 is a great piece, I mean really great, especially the "climax" *teehee*, but what about the other ones? I personally enjoy the 2nd better just because of its almost perpetual energy, its much more exciting throughout.

Now that I think about it, I hate Mephisto Waltz No. 1, not because it sucks, its a great piece, but due to the fact it overshadows the other (in my opinion), better pieces.

Anyone kind of agree?
Anyone have the sheet music?
Anyone have an MP3 of the piece?

The Mephisto Waltzes are indeed great, but they're among those pieces of Liszt's that I would never begin to think about attempting to begin learning. :P

kinda random...but I think Liszt's greatest waltzes were his transcriptions of Schubert's waltzes. No.6 and 7 are superb. True, they are only transcriptions, but still, they are freaking awesome. To be honest I really do not like Liszt's Mephisto waltzes...no warm feelings from it like the ones I get from a Chopin (op.18 & 69-1!) or Brahms waltz (lovesong waltzes!).
