Genre: Power Metal

Blind Guardian are the reason why I like power metal today.They have pretty much earned the title of "THE power metal band", and I support that statement to the fullest.This album is obviously a concept album about Middle Earth, and being the Tolkien fanatic I am I naturally love the idea.Even though the album is a little to heavy on the interludes, is killer as most people already know.Highlights include "Time Stands Still (At The Iron Hill", "Nightfall", and "When Sorrow Sang", with the best song being "Mirror Mirror".The guitar playing on this record is some of the best I've heard out of the genre, and is really fun to play if your a guitar player. Now just make sure you people know, this is NOT the only Blind Guardian album on this list, in fact the other one will be quite high up.All power metal fans will love this record.
