Guest review by
"The Courts Of Chaos" was the last official release of Manilla Road, since the internal conflicts of the band, lead to a split-up some months later… As Mark Shelton (vocals) said, this was the first Manilla Road masterpiece, an opinion that many fans of the band share. Some people even believe that it should not be absent by any Heavy Metal collection… Personally, although I like this genre very much, I don't believe this album is so special… I'd rather say it becomes boring after the first songs…

Good album with weakish middle part. The first four songs are pretty strong, but then things go wrong until the last two songs that are EPIC. "Into The Courts Of Chaos" and "The Books Of Skelos" are certainly 'Road classics
