This album is good but not as good as Imaginations from the other side...

This CD is Great. They could cut out the bagpipes and 'Spread your Wings' but just about all the other songs on here are good. I give it a 9 out of 10

Not their best work but still a fine work of art. The cover song by Queen is nice, but the real glory of this cd comes from Theatre of Pain (classic version), track 13. This probably the best song I've ever heard. It almost makes the whole cd worth getting, just to hear it. Almost. Not that you should pass this cd up mind you!

The two highlights of the album for me are 'Theatre Of Pain' and 'The Quest Of Tanelorn.' There is so much energy in 'Theatre Of Pain,' their ecological song. I love the orchestral intro, the throaty guitar lead from Olbrich, and the whole feel of the track. It's this kind of symphonic metal that attracted me to the genre.

This was my first Blind Guardian CD and BOY did it kick my ass. I especially like the title track and 'Time What Is Time.' Great cover art too!

Hell yes. This was my first BG album, and I listen to stuff like Iced Earth and whatnot. It owns, especially Ashes to Ashes, Theatre of Pain, Trial By Fire, and the title track. The only one I DON'T like is Spread Your Wings. That was total shit in my opinion.
