The very best of Helloween!

"This album is my absolute favorite album any band! There are so many reasons why, as well. First off, since Andi Deris joined the band in 1994, Helloween have greatly surpassed any of their previous works. "Pink Bubbles Go Ape" and "Chameleon" were great albums, but just not Helloween. Andi Deris joining the band, re-defined what Helloween really is as they began to once again make the [best] Power Metal CD's ever. This album is slightly darker than previous Helloween albums. It is very heavy, very fast, very aggressive, very just has it all. The duel guitars of Roland Grapow and Michael Weikath tear through your head, Markus Grosskopf's bass work defines these beautiful tracks, the fast and pounding drums of Uli Kusch keep you banging your head, and of course, Andi Deris' soaring vocals will have you listening to this CD non-stop! This is the best Helloween has sounded...ever. Long live Helloween and Andi Deris! Helloween is taking you over!"

"Helloween plays energetic power metal with plenty of catchy melodies and great singing yet still retains a heavy edge. The musicianship is phenomenal with plenty of double bass drumming that is sure to get your head banging. This is one of my favorite Helloween releases. It is a great listen from start to finish. This American version of the album has a bonus song called "A game we should not play", which is , I think, better than the bonus song that was on the Japanese release. This is one of their heavier albums with some creative drum rhythms. One of my favorite songs is Laudate Dominum which has some of the most beautiful almost angelic singing and still retains a heavy metal feel with double bass drums jamming along and some AWESOME guitar solos. Trust me, if you are a fan of music like what I've described you will be as overjoyed with this album as I was."
