Jophelerx , June 14th, The chorus is also most catchy, but not as Time Stands Still, but really close. Which I think actually irritates me more than if there would have been.

What I do have a problem with is that there are more interludes than there are actual songs here! They don't move the story along at all.

As the album is progressing you are bombarded with brilliant melodies, magical and majestic choirs and vocals with quite solid, progressive and powerful drumming. AnalogKidMarch 18th, A great song, truly. These aren't third rate Italian flower metal spoken interludes which are overly dramatic and absurdly cheesy, but rather very mixed and colorful spoken additions which are of particular note to those who grew up with the stories of Guaardian Earth.

It speaks of Morgoth and his glory and power. Hansi is a great vocalist, and he gives 22 great vocal performances. The lyrics speak of Maeglin, an elf born of an evil guardlan, and the apple does not fall far from the tree in this case.
While there are definitely some good songs, the stinkers are still there; "The Curse of Feanor", for one. Guarian, it is a blatant Queen homage and I've never been a fan of Freddie Mercury.

Nightfall in Middle-Earth, on the other hand, pushes the agenda a little too far, almost transgressing the borders of the dreaded realm of flower metal. I don't know why, but it's just boring. It's an album that I find boring, contrite, and just lame.
It'd be quite a kickass song if not for the weak guitar blinnd. It doesn't take much away from the listening experience, but if the band had cut out all of these interludes and shortened the track listing down a bit, the album would be much better.
SilenceIsConsentJune 7th, Writing for SputnikMusic, Kyle Ward said that on this album "Blind Guardian laid down their finest instrumental performance to date.
Morgoth still remains free, and he has the Silmarils, but all otherwise seems well. I thought this was supposed to be power metal, not German time waste!
