Guest review by

I got this album as a Christmas gift some years ago. I used to listen to Helloween with my friend and this was the only album we hadn't heard. He paid something equal to 8 dollars (the backside said 30 $m imported from the U.S) which says pretty much about what people think about this album. At first I didn't like it at all because it was not metal enough of course. People seem to look at this album as Helloweens "Risk" or "St. Anger" and they all think it's to much pop/rock and not enough metal. I absolutely disagree, and especially nowadays when I've started to be more open minded with music. In my opinion, Helloween does this kinda music great and much better than most other bands. The daring to do something different - and succeeding (that's what I think) is so unique for power metal bands, Hammerfall for example wouldn't want and wouldn't be able to create something like this.

Rating: 6 Listening to it now. First time in twenty years and on cassette too. Not as bad as I remember so far. Not very metal so far though. Will get back to you when I've finished.

EDIT. Sounds like a mix between Aerosmith and Helloween. Kiske's voice sounds a bit forced in places, which is a surprize.

EDIT. Holy shit Windmill.

EDIT. Its not getting better.

EDIT. I Believe is an amazing track, was not expecting such a good track on such a poor album.

  Garbage. And what a letdown it was back then in 1993.
