3 stars This is Blind Guardian's second effort and here this is where they still process the older "Thrashier Metallica" sound as I call it. The rawer sound coupled with the lack of Hansi's multi-layered vocals make the sound here really raw sounding and extremely Speed/Thrash Metal like. Not a bad thing here as Banish From Sanctuary, Valhalla, etc. are all Blind Guardian classics and extremely brilliant sounding. But this is no Power Metal masterpiece as it shows Blind Guardian are getting their sound together and setting a foundation for their later, more Symphonic, More Progressive releases. A great foundation here, even though this album is not the most solid or stable-sounding album on their rather short discography (for such a long band!) But the original Staunch, Kursch, Olbrich and Siepen lineup will last until A Twist in the Myth was released late in 2006.

An ok effort. 2.5/5 For a good addition into your album collection.

3 stars Switch your mode to power metal! Otherwise .

.skip this review! It's because the music presented here in this album nothing whatsoever that can be classified as prog music at all. It's a pure power metal album with fast tempo and double bass pedals work. I owned this CD as a logical consequence of falling in love with their Nightfall in Middle Earth album which to me is a masterpiece of progressive metal album. This second album "Follow The Blind" has nothing similar with that masterpiece album. My chief reason to spin again this CD is because of after watching their first DVD set, I saw how "Valhalla" was performed brilliantly. That's why I need to re-spin the "Follow The Blind" album so that I can listen to the music

This album comprises all power metal tunes with fast tempo music as demonstrated by double pedal bass drums and the guitar solo. This time Hansi Kursch still play bass guitar and vocal. From "Inquisition" (0:40) to "Banish From Sanctuary" (5:28) there is strong demonstration of the heavy and high speed music offered. The guitar solo seems quite dominating in terms of the music. "Damned for All Time" (4:57) continues the sounds of heavy music, followed with the title track "Follow the Blind" (7:11). From the tracks provided here in this album it's very clear how the foundations of Blind Guardian have been built. "Valhalla" (4:55) does not seem interesting at this studio version but when it's performed live, it becomes interesting. It also appeared at "Tokyo Tapes" live album.

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW

3 stars A good album, but it is definitely worse than its predecessor. It is actually their worst, in my opinion

Well, Follow the Blind is the fist transitional album for Blind Guardian. Much like Battalions of Fear, this is a speed metal album, but the power metal influence is getting increasingly bigger, and that is very clear when you see the length of the songs (they are all generally much bigger), see the total time of the album (the album is almost 4 minutes longer) and notice that there is 1 song less (there are 8 songs here and 9 in Battalions). Also the songs start to have more of that epic feeling, something that will follow Blind Guardian probably until the end of the band. However, this album have a big problem that cannot go unnoticed, specially when compared to Battalions of Fear: it is way repetitive and because of that it sounds boring and dull many times (like in the songs Damned for all Time and Follow the Blind), so i think the guys should have followed themselves and make smaller songs where the ideas could be better developed and worked, without making the songs sound bigger than they should nor boring neither dull like they do. Maybe the real problem is that this album is mostly a straightforward speed metal with way - to - long songs.

The good news is that there are terrific songs in this album such as Inquisition + Banished from Sanctuary and Valhalla (Valhalla got some special highlights on their live DVD, when the audience sang it even after the band finished the it and at the end of The Last Candle and before Bright Eyes). Strangely enough these songs sound a lot like older Guardian, and therefore are very power metal influenced, being the best songs of the album, at least in my opinion.

About the songs, musicianship and other features there are some thing i would like to state:

Although this album sound a lot more cooked than Battalions rawness, meaning that technically they are better but it is still no Niccolō Paganini Moto Perpetuo, if you know what i mean. I mean, they here show some really good progress, but there are still a long road to walk. Both the solos and the riffing are way more competent and their notes are much clearer and also Hansi's singing got a lot better, or maybe they just got a better production, but i rather believe they became better musicians. Also, in 89' their bassist, both studio session and live bassist, was Hansi, who still played bass for Guardian until Imaginations from the Other Side, but that is another story.

Grade and final thoughts:

Unlike Battalions, i actually think this is a fair grade for Follow the blind, that is a good album, but its not THAT good also. Of course, for the hardcore fan this album is a must have, for it contains some classics like Valhalla and Banished from Sanctuary, but for the average fan this album is just a good release.

On a personal side note, i would like to say that this album MUST be listened loud, or it will just loose its goodness away.

2 stars Follow the Blind is the second studio album from German power metal act Blind Guardian. In 1989 the german power metal scene were dominated by Helloween and their succesful Keeper of the Seven Keys albums. Blind Guardian are very influenced by Helloween on Follow the Blind and their later progressive tendencies are nowhere to be found on this album.

The music on Follow the Blind is generally fast euro power metal with lots of tremolo picking galloping guitar riffs ( and some thrashy ones too), double bass drums and lots of leads and guitar solos. Iron Maiden is another of Blind Guardianīs influences on Follow the Blind. I like the fast pace and when Blind Guardian slows down itīs unfortunately a bit too obvious that their material still lacked quality at this point in their career. Thatīs actually my biggest problem with this album. There are lots of melody but not many memorable lines that stick. Favorites are Banish From Sanctuary and Fast to Madness, but nothing really sticks out too much. Itīs a very consistent album. The only thing that does stick out is the cover of The Beach Boys Barbara Ann. What a strange choice for a cover song. Itīs a mood enhancer though and Iīm left smiling.

The musicianship is great. Hansi Kürsch still needed to fine tune his vocal style but his performance is allright here. The melodic leads are great too.

The production leaves a lot to be desired and in fact Iīm so annoyed by this thin and empty eighties production that Iīll have to withdrawn one star because of it. It simply destroys the enjoyment for me.

Follow the Blind is another fan only album from Blind Guardian and even though there are enjoyable moments on the album the overall feeling after listening is that itīs a 2 star album. If the production had been better I might have given Follow the Blind 3 stars though. Donīt start here if youīre new to Blind Guardian.

4 stars Blind Guardian's second album continues in much the same vein as the first, with a guest appearance from Helloween veteran Kai Hansen underlining their position at the heart of the European power metal and speed metal scenes. Still thrashier and angrier than the sound they'd develop later in their career, the band prove the diverse range of their abilities by rounding the album off with a cover of NWOBHM standard Don't Break the Circle (originally by Demon) as well as showing their sense of humour with a thrashed-up cover of the surf rock classic Barbara Ann. On balance, there isn't a whole lot of musical development shown over the debut album, but aside from that this is another enjoyable disc.
