Just listened to this for the first time today... a little overdue seeing as I saw them something like four times this year.

Oh well, same old Dragonforce...

According to me, this should be entitled "Ultra Letdown"...

Not only does it have one of the fruitiest album covers ever, but the music itself is totally monotonous.

You did well. The first 2 albums are enough, after that, it's listening to the first 2 again and again.

Shouldn't there be expectations in the first place in order to be let down?

They really have to try something new on their upcoming album, 'cause this starts to sound redundant...
Or can't Herman Li move his fingers any slower?

Haha, I really never have any expectations when it comes to this band. They're good for a quick listen--just a few songs and that's it. A fun band, but that's about it.

albums at the extremes* - either really good or really fucking horrible are the ones that garner the most comments.


* of course this only matters with "popular" bands. lots of folks, lucas in particular, seem to stumble across and review some awesome shit from obscure folks that still gets compeltely missed.

I thought I'd never give a rating below four... but I realized 'very bad' is a good description of this album. This is the worst album I've heard in my life and I believe it will remain on that position.
(And no, I don't want to give a full listen to Lulu, or Illud, or The Browning, or anything you use to challenge your eardrums)

The only song i kinda enjoy on the entire album was Strike of the Ninja... Why that one ? Because it was the ONLY one that didn't sound exactly like ALL the others.

That is the best song on the album, and it's actually a bonus track, not a regular album track.

I think this is the best album of dragonforce. People who think this is their worst need to get some ears.

People who don't agree with you have ear problems? Seems like an odd conclusion to arrive on.
Also I think all of Dragonforce's albums are their worst.

I have absolutely no idea. I said "all of Dragonforce's albums are their worst", meaning I put them all on the same level, so if he was trying to mock me he failed miserably.
Let's just leave poor Odinson and his evidently dysfunctional brain at peace and not try to make sense of his illogical statements.

As with every Dragonforce album which preceded this one, the opening track is very decent. However, with "Ultra Beatdown" the other 7 songs are just painfully average and the musicianship just gets tiresome too soon. That said, I still enjoyed 'Heroes of our Time'.
