Un tostón de disco,esto no hay quien se lo trague,este grupo esta totalmente QUEMADO.¿Os imaginais estos temas en directo?INSOPORTABLE.

From: Damien Date: September 10, 2002 at 11:04
The best CD I've ever heard. It's hard to describe the sheer power of Blind Guardian. Th story told is mystifying. If you enjoy Blind Guardian then know this is their best work to date. Nothing compares! Even if you know nothing of the band buy this CD lest I perish!

From: Lord Roadkill Date: September 10, 2002 at 14:11
I still like "Somewhere Far Beyond" best, but this is pretty damn good. I think maybe next album they should lay off the orchestration a little bit tho. They lay it on so thick here that it becomes a little tough to listen to after a while.

Este es el disco mas cabron que jamas haya escuchado en mi perra vida. Este disco le da mil patadas a cualquier otro. Lejos el más producido de BG. Solo escuchenlo entero. No se puede decir que cancion es buena porque todas, TODAS, son la zorra. BG RULES!!!!! UP THE BARDS!!!

From: Darth Vader Date: January 16, 2003 at 11:08
This is without any doubt the best album in 2002! Incredible songs from the german masters of Power Metal. Heavy Metal will never die!

From: SrFloppy5 Date: January 26, 2003 at 14:35
de acuerdo con 9 champions: vaya palo de disco. Horroroso

From: Evergrey_fan Date: March 16, 2003 at 19:13
This is the strongest power-metal album that I own. A little hard to get used to, but once you do you realize it's Blind Guardian strongest album, great guitar play, very well sung.

From: tailgunner Date: April 17, 2003 at 8:27
salvo la primera cancion, el resto no me llama la atencion. lo he escuchado varias veces y no he descubierto bada nuevo. creo q le voy a dar un seis, y solo le salva la primera cancion...

From: Darrin Date: May 14, 2003 at 1:38
blind guardin first album ive heard and it is all right i gave it a 10. but if you really like these people you should hear the band called demons and wizards. its got the singer from blind guardin in it. its got really good singing and if you like blind guardin you will most likely like demons and wizards... lol i had put down ice earth when i first began to type this out

From: The voice Date: June 2, 2003 at 23:47
demons is good, love fiddler on the green, but is not as good as blind guardian or iced earth

From: mia5kovic Date: October 26, 2003 at 12:00
it's great! i like this album very much

From: Moff Date: April 13, 2004 at 12:01
At first this album seems really daunting, its just so big and powerfull. You really have to sit down and concentrate to get full enjoyment from it. But i promise you, when you do really listen to it, its really something. It's nice to see classically trained musicians really going for it. People say that it's too big or cheesy, but isn't that why we like power metal? Genius 10/10

From: vixenkrown Date: May 3, 2004 at 19:33
i love blind guardian. they are incredible and their music (especially in "a night at the opera")is absolutly perfect, thats all that i can really say

trop racing pi vive le québec

From: it yug Date: July 16, 2004 at 21:57
blind guardian c le best groupe de metal pis vive le québec tabarnak

From: Kip Date: September 26, 2004 at 0:29
How completely AWESOME is the opening track and the ending track? Precious Jerusalem may be the best masterpiece of power metal ever, and 'And Then There Was Silence' is an epic of unparralelled proportions. Everything in between is pretty damn solid too. New fans of this band should definately start here and work backwards. 9.5/10

From: Metalhead66 Date: November 5, 2004 at 13:33
Be forwarned THIS IS AN OPERA! And a bad one at that. The sticker on the front of the CD said it's the best thing since early Maiden or something like that..Hah! It's An Opera W/Opera styled Vocals ..No shit...Pavoratti watch out....Sucks.
