2 stars What a deception ! Rockpommel's Land is one of the most over-rated albums of the progressive rock world. Grobschnitt goes truly symphonic and takes notes on Yes for this one. For sure, the disc has good passages on it, like the catchy Ernie's Reise and the final section of the title track, but these are not sufficient to make a good record. Most of the music here is difficult to enter into and becomes unfortunately pointless.

In fact, Tontillon is the best song here. It is nearly the first time that a bonus track is better than the songs from the album ! From its magic opening with smooth bells, the tune evolves and grows in intensity more and more to a beautiful melancholic melody.

2,5 stars for this important but inegal release from Grobschnitt.
