BLIND GUARDIAN just cannot release a weak album. After "Somewhere Far Beyond" already had been an incredible album, I've had some fears that they would not be able to keep the level, hah, "Imaginations From The Others Side" impressively prove me wrong!
Packed into an awesome production BLIND GUARDIAN have further refined their style, in many cases Speed Metal, with super-fat choirs, epic melodies, great riffs, brilliantly arranged songs, which leave next to nothing to be desired in variability, within also calm passages, which show influences from Folk and the Middle Age, and Hansi Kürsch has further worked on his voice.
Among the nine songs there are no even slightly weak songs, "Imaginations From The Other Side", the great ballad "A Past And Future Secret" "The Script For My Requiem" or "Bright Eyes" even now are absolute classics!
There just is nothing better in Melodic Speed Metal, period!
