This cd will take you on a wild ride filled with adventure, drama and mayhem! Perfect for both the opera fanatics and power metal fans. This album is chocked full of pure talent and hard work. Kudos to all of those involved with the project! - Hendercrazy (Brutal Metal Contributor)

Original, bonito, bello. Se parece demasiado a Edguy, pero aún así gran disco, en especial las dos baladas

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: January 29, 2003 at 10:28
Uno de esos discos que merecen pasar a la historia del Heavy Metal por la grandilocuencia del mismo a parte de sensacionales temas.Los temas llevan el sello inconfundible de Helloween/Edguy,temazos de la hostia son todos,yo personalmente me quedo con Avantasia,Breakin Away y Sign Of The Cross.Lo dicho,si eres fan del metal mas clásico este disco es ABSOLUTAMENTE IMPRESCINDIBLE.(Ah,y si amigos Ernie es el mas grande,como no ,Michael Kiske).

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: January 29, 2003 at 14:24
Personalmente opino que este CD es lo más grande que se ha hecho en la historia del Heavy Metal tras el Keeper de Helloween Epico, espectacular, super melódico... 10/10 Para cualquier fan de Rock no es necesario ser un fan del Heavy repito super joya.

From: tailgunner Date: February 11, 2003 at 18:10
no deberia faltarle a nadie, power metal del bueno, buenisimo, espectacular, que nadie se lo pierda, 10/10, de acuerdo con champion en cuanto a las mejores canciones

From: Rycheage Date: March 25, 2003 at 2:03
Excellent power metal. What a ride!! Highly recommended!!

From: akis Date: March 25, 2003 at 22:00
i am from greece and i know this disk is the best i 've ever buy...

From: Facedancer Date: June 1, 2003 at 15:28
As a dedicated Bruce Springsteen-fan, Avantasia and other Power Metal is quite unknown to me. But I must say - after hearing about Avantasia from a friend - that this really kicks ass just like an ass should be kicked. Looking forward to listen get my hands on Pt. 2. This is actually how true metal should sound like......
