Review by Conor Fynes
3 stars 'The Magic Of The Wizard's Dream' - Rhapsody (Of Fire) (Single)

Now this is an interesting EP... Essentially the same song played over and over, but each in a different language. The song itself is a typical ballad arrangement but the performance is really special. Until this, I had no idea that the actor Christopher Lee could sing! I knew he had a powerful voice as far as speaking went, but he really shines here; definately on par with his stagemate Fabio (the singer of the band.)

This is a very interesting EP, and the fact that there are lyrics written in each language makes it a real feat. Each vocal performance gives a bit of a different feel to it. The french version for example, sounds close to being a love song, whilst the german version is very powerful and martial in nature...

A great idea, and a testament to just how much difference a vocal performance can make in a song.
