Guest review by

Hey, this is the spirit! This is how a completely over the top-album with tons of orchestras and epic themes should sound! If a band is into playing this kind of stuff, it can either be cheesy and embarrassing or just awesome. 'Triumph Or Agony' is an album that should be put in the second category for sure. Of course it is cheesy, but in a good way. Compare 'Star Trek' with 'Lord Of The Rings' and you might understand what I mean.

Rating: 10 My favorite Rhapsody album! completely epic and has a more polished and refined sound compared to their early worx (though i also love the early stuff too)

Rating: 8 Can't explain the low general rating. This is actually good, not among the genre's giants, but a good album.

Rating: 9 It's just different and softer (that's maybe the reason so many people voted low rating for this one). Even though this one has one of their best songs (Silent Dream, GOD, I LOVE THIS SONG!!!; Son of Pain, my favourite ballad; The Mystic Prophecy of the Demonknight, as beautiful as GREAT!!!)
