Guest review by

Heading for Tomorrow - The real Keeper of the Seven Keys Part III

As we all know Kai Hansen left Helloween after the Keeper II because of different reasons. One of them was that the other members wanted to play music with less metal influences, which resulted in Pink Bubbles and Chameleon. Kai wanted to keep on with the metal, and therefore left Helloween to found his own band.

  Been really into this album recently... not listened to Gamma Ray in such a long time, and they used to be one of my top top top bands...

  This album is by far the best of Scheepers-era Gamma Ray.

Rating: 7 Just barely a good album, many weak songs here. In contrast there's a couple of great tracks such as "Silence" and "Heading For Tomorrow" and ok songs like "Lust For Life" and "Hold Your Ground". The album definitely doesn't go to the favorite Gamma Ray albums category, but does work for occasional listens.

  I never could get into this one, maybe few songs and now I know why... many todays bands delivers better music, well in this case still as opening album it has better menaing and still better as later, but still I cant rate it high. Heaven Can Wait is only stand out song

Rating: 9 A very good album. Best GR, together with LOTF, for me.
It has it weak points, that is right, but alone for the epic, outstanding title track, and Heaven can wait this album is a classic of German Power Metal.
