A wery heavy Helloween cd, buy it if you like Helloween.

From: Rycheage Date: March 3, 2002 at 17:20
Excellent progression from the radio-friendly "Better Than Raw". This CD has speed,crunch and progression. The 2 best tracks are "The Departed" and "The Dark Ride". Excellent power from Germany's masters.

a total power punch in ya face!!!!! the best since masters of the rings. I love this cd, the raw angry and powerful guitar. Never heard Helloween like this but I love it and it deserves a 10000000000!!!!!!! We damn the nite is should be one of their latest masterpieces since Eagle fly free.

If you can get this album, get it. It is all good

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: October 13, 2002 at 10:38
My version has 2 CD's in a limited edition slipcase box + a CD single "If I Could Fly " as an added bonus!!!Shhhweeeeet!!! I payed 10 bucks for it!!!

From: Fog-hat Date: December 20, 2002 at 11:10
Fantastic album! If you like great hooks in songs you can't beat "Mr. Torture", "If I could fly", "I live for your pain" and "immortal". The worst song is "Salvation" but even its pretty good. If your into Iced Earth, Iron maiden or Jag Panzer you may like this CD. Well worth the money.

Creo que es un disco muy injustamente criticado.

From: BLACK LORD Date: April 1, 2003 at 0:02
buen disco con unas cuantas canciones malas (mirror mirror).

From: Jeremy Date: August 26, 2003 at 2:48
Correction, fog-hat, "Salvation" is probably the best track on the album, and the 1 song I would recommend for download to anyone considering buying this album.

From: black girl Date: October 15, 2003 at 18:28
GREAT CD! All songs are good, maybe "If I could fly" is the best. P.S. Nice cover.

From: Defender Date: May 25, 2004 at 11:08
I LOVE THIS ALBUM...is one of the 4 best album of helloween...next to Walls Of Jericho,Keeper Of The Seven Keys 2,The Time Of The Oath

From: ed Date: September 23, 2004 at 23:19
I picked this one with the + added IF I COULD FLY single. Man, I ended up winning! The cd have a dark feeling (the title is DARK RIDE, duh!) I enjoy all the songs specially MR. TORTURE, IF I COULD FLY, SALVATION, I LIVE FOR YOUR PAIN, IMMORTAL, and (of course) the title track DARK RIDE. + the single includes another song titled DELIVER US FROM TEMPTATION, which is freaking fast! The way I like music to be! If you don't have this, pick this one up! Trust me!
