CD Reviews

Good, as usual
Samuel Rotta Castilla | Lima, Peru | 04/16/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you're familiarized with Rhapsody's work, you won't find surprises in this cd. "Emeral Sword" and the remake of "Land of Immortals" (previously released on "Legendary Tales") show the best of this band: fast and virtuous guitars, a strong but melodic rhytmic frame and the powerful voice of Lione. "Where Dragons Fly" exposes a more soft side of the band, but without letting go the virtuosity and ability to take the listener to the worlds that the song describes. Lyrically, you won't find nothing new beyond the eternal fight between good and evil, poetically stressed. It is more of the same; but who cares when you are taken to a world of fantasy in every song?, how many bands are able to achieve that goal?If you don't know this band, but you have listened to, for example, Yngwiee Malmsteen or Helloween, for sure you'll like Rhapsody.Finally, don't forget to check out the album that this single precedes (Symphony of Enchanted Lands)."
Worth it for one song
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This single contains material that already appears on Rhapsody's album "Symphony of Enchanted Lands". However, there is one song on here that does NOT appear on the full album: Where Dragons Fly. This song alone is worth the purchase of this single! This is probably the most beautiful song that Rhapsody has ever written and played, and has a very deep "midieval" feel to it. It's too bad that this song does not appear on any full Rhapsody album."
