From beginning to end this album takes you on a fantastic ride. The sound quality is very high, as well as the song writing. From track one, Uli Kusch shows how to play the drums. The compositions are very neat and clean. King Jorn
can just plain sing! Unlike a lot of other power metal bands, his vocals are a lot more bluesy, and he really sets them apart in the genre. Roland Grapow
's solos are very tasteful, and not showy; more for the good of the song and not what you would expect. A guest vocal by Mike Kiske is brief, but memorable. Surprisingly, the single "Enlighten Me
" is nowhere near the best song on the album. So it is not a good measure of how good this album is. I give it a 10/10. I can play this straight through and enjoy it. I don't see how this album could be improved.
