"When I heard "Tribute to the Past" for the first time a couple of years ago, I knew I had to buy this album. It has to be one of the greatest heavy metal songs ever recorded....every second is pure heavy metal bliss. But it's by no means the only classic on this masterpiece of a record....."No return", "Gamma Ray" and the title track are all melodic heavy metal at its best. This is also the most progressive of all GR albums, just listen to songs such as "Heal me" and "the Cave Principle". Songs like these have been missing from their more recent works. The only letdown of the CD is the 3r track, 'Last before the storm', which is a your standard, predictable metal song. But all the other 10 tracks are GREAT. This is definitely one of the most underrated heavy metal albums of all time, easily the best Gamma Ray record out there. Though Kai's not a bad singer, his vocals are no match to Ralf's and in my books Gamma Ray has never been the same since Ralf left. But this album is a classic, I recommend it to anyone who has a thing for great melodies, skillful musicianship, powerful vocals and all those things that make Gamma Ray a metallic powerhouse."
