4 stars There have been claims that this is the best Blind Guardian album, now while i can claim that this is a very very very very good album, i dont think it held my attention like some of the other ones did (one in particular anyway.)

Like all Blind Guardian albums this does a fantastic job of blending fantasy tales of the Lord Of The Rings nature with speed/power metal and folk metal and of course THAT voice. We all know Hansi Kürsch has an earth-shatteringly amazing voice im telling ya it could crush the world, this album is no different every note that man sings done with perfection im thinking of one my opinion one of the finest Power Metal songs in the history of Power Metal, the title track IMAGINATIONS FROM THE OTHER SIDE, of course theres soo much other songs to choose from, IM ALIVE, ANOTHER HOLY WAR and BRIGHT EYES just being 3 songs where he delivers top notch vocals, but not only are the vocals brilliant but every instrument on this album just rules, i just dont think its as strong as my next review is;

Imaginations from the Other Side - 10/10 I'm alive - 9/10 A past and future secret - 8/10 The script for my requiem - 8/10 Mordred's song - 8/10 Born in a mourning hall - 8/10 Bright eyes - 10/10 Another Holy War - 10/10 And the Story Ends - 9/10

My Conclusion? A worthy addition to any metal fans collection, just a great album.
