Setting the record straight
Bruce Turnbull | Newcastle, UK | 08/14/2002

"Ok,i am gonna explain something about this cd,why only give it one star? its very well played and i know they aint the best tracks in the world,but not only is this album experimental because Kai didn't want to completly [copy] his old band,but he didn't write all the songs by himself! most are written by/with other people,so dont blame kai,i think this album is quite good,and is very different but its good because its different,so if your a manic gamma ray fan like me,buy it,but if your looking for a good solid gamma ray cd,try 'land of the free' or 'no world order'"
3-star album, 4-star reissue

"Kai Hansen & company didn't waste any time following up their 1990 debut album Heading for Tomorrow. Sophomore album Sigh No More was released just one year later.

Listening to Sigh No More 15 years after its original release, you can understand where the band was coming from and picture them trying to define the Gamma Ray sound and perhaps distinguish it from that of Hansen's first band Helloween. At the time though, and after a very Helloween-like debut, you can see how this album might have come as a shock. Sigh No More is less epic and melodic than its predecessor, and is a good deal more aggressive and raw. Still, it's a decent album, and is definitely a Kai Hansen album. Besides, it holds up a lot better than what Helloween was dishing out at the time (Pink Bubbles Go Ape, anyone?).

I suppose it goes without saying that Gamma Ray would appeal to Helloween fans. Fans of the more recent power metal bands like Sonata Arctica, Freedom Call, Edguy and Hammerfall also owe it to themselves to check out Gamma Ray, though Sigh No More is probably not the best album to start with. Land of the Free is your best intro to Gamma Ray.

Edition Notes: The 2003 reissue of Sigh No More features digitally remastered sound, three bonus tracks ("Heroes," "Who Do You Think You Are" and an extra-long pre-production version of "Dream Healer"). It comes in a pretty cheap-looking digipack, but aside from that it's a nice upgrade that pushes a 3-star album into 4-star territory.

PS: If you can find one, there is a very cool (but very limited) box set that collects all six of the remastered Gamma Ray albums."

"This album should be called "Less Than Ourselves" This album is all filler and no killer. This is just a capitalization on popularity. Their last album "Heading for Tomorrow" made an impression on the world and so they wanted to make a HFT 2 and did a real bad job at it. I don't particuarlly like this album, but I gave it a three stars just for the effort of coming out with something they thought we'd like. I own it for the collection and I won't be listening to it less than I have the first time."
