2 stars Encouraged by a very succesful concept album Blind Guardian decided to go even further in the epicness. The result is far from expectations. 14 minute long piece And Then There Was Silence is boring as hell and even harmonized guitars can't help the feeling that they were out of ideas at the time. But the worst thing about this record is the production. Very intense thick sound combining simply everything they're known for at the same time as the track is running is unbearable. Even good moments lose in this battle. Almost 70 minutes of a constant noise that's what it really is. Don't listen to this album on the headphones. But if you can get past the nasty production (which is not easy) you'll hear Blind Guardian. This band, no other. Cos it's still their style.
