3 stars I was dissapointed the first time I listened to A Twist in the Myth, as I had loved Blind Guardianīs previous album A Night at the Opera and didnīt feel A Twist in the Myth is as good as that one. My biggest problem though is that I feel this is their weakest album out of their last four, and I was hoping this would be a continuation of the bombastic symphonic sound they used on A Night at the Opera.

As it turns out A Twist in the Myth is a more stripped down affair than A Night in the Opera ( as stripped down as a Blind Guardian album can be). The part that I like the least though is the fact that Blind Guardian has used more Hard Rock tendencies on A Twist in the Myth. This is in my eyes not suiting for a metal band. A song like This Will Never End does save a lot though as it is a brilliant song. Other songs on the album have great ideas too, but I think they lack the enthusiasm that was very much present on previous albums.

Bottomline is this is not what I expected from Blind Guardian, and I can only give 3 stars for A Twist in the Myth. Itīs a good and solid album, just not outstanding when bearing in mind what Blind Guardian has released in the past.

UMUR | 3/5 |
