4 stars Although Rhapsody...oops! Rhapsody Of Fire's proginness can be discussed, the heavy amount of cheese present in their music and lyrics can turn off many listeners. I am a heavy metal fan and I always found ROF's music enjoyable, when I felt like listening to it. Triumph Or Agony is a far more focused album, darker, much less metallic effort. More operatic vocals, less thrashy riffs, more lamenting and anguished choirs make this record stand out from the rest of their albums.The ballads/metal ratio has increased a lot. Not as cheesy as they once were, not as pretentious with blistering solos and "over the valley of dragons, eternal pride and victory of undying wisdom of long lost magic sword tales of old elvish poems....". This can be associated with the old if you disliked Rhapsody you might want to give this one a try!
