Staff review by

It's a beautiful day, the sky is clear blue, the sun in shining and it's blowing just so much so it's perfect out there, a perfect Swedish summer (autumn) day, and when the mail came I got a package with an album, no other than the new Rhapsody, seems like a perfect Friday, don't you think? At least, that's what I thought about it.

Rating: 9 I must be one of the few people that actually really enjoyed this album! Or so it seems. I thought it was an excellent album musically.

I must be one of the few people that actually really enjoyed this album! Or so it seems. I thought it was an excellent album musically.

IMHO it took time to get the taste in this one. But finally I got it some time ago. It's very different if we compare it with Power of the Dragonflame, so that's the possible reason so much people dislike it. But it has great songs: Unholy Warcry, The Magic of the Wizard's Dream, Erian's Mystical Rhymes, SACRED POWER OF RAGING WINDS (Luca Turilli's BEST SOLO EVER is in that one), Guardiani del Destino, SHADOWS OF DEATH (GREAT DUEL Luca vs. Staropoli ).

These kind of albums is just for the people who enjoys the music without falling in fanboyisms or elitisms.

Rating: 6 I remember what a huge disappointment this was upon its release. Just think, Rhapsody, a band that had released nothing but great albums, working with Christopher "The Motherf*cking Saruman" Lee! I'll admit it's a decent album, but nowhere near the first five ones.
