5 stars Well, definitely Blind Guardian does not belong to Progressive, it is pure sample of Power Metal. At the same time rating 4 (Excellent addition to any prog music collection) would be too low to estimate this album, it is in fact Masterpiece and Excellect addition to ANY collection. In my opinion for the moment Nightfall is the best Metal album and since 1998 I did not find anything better, be that Progressive, Power or in any other style of music. I will not go into details, you have to listen to it yourself. I think people who like such artists like Dream Theater, Fates Warning, Crimson Glory will find that Blind Guardian is quite close to these bands, even if not by music style, but in spirit somehow. For others I would suggest the formula that being progressive means being open-minded and you have to open your mind to see the beauty of the Nightfall...
