Genre: Power Metal

Blind Guardian are my favorite power metal band.They introduced me to power metal, and me learn to start digging deeper for bands that I like for all genres.This album is definitely the essential Blind Guardian album, with most of their best songs on this record.The whole fantasy atmosphere works best on this album to me, and Blind Guardian are pretty much the masters of combining fantasy and metal in general IMO.Hansi Kursh's vocals didn't appeal to me that much at first, but I've learned to love it and his bass playing.Thomen Stauch is a pretty solid drum player, and Marcus Siepen and Andre Olbrich are both phenomenal guitar players.Standouts include one of my favorite ballads "A Past And Future Secret", the somewhat underrated "Another Holy War", and my favorite Blind Guardian song and the one I was introduced to, the anthemic title-track.

Standout Track:
"Imaginations From The Other Side"
Nice work. Fantastic album!
