4 stars I actually got Nightfall in Middle-Earth as the last of my Blind Guardian albums which meant that I had enjoyed both Imaginations From the Other Side and A Night at the Opera before this one. But as this is the album in the middle of those two releases it builds a nice bridge between them.

The album is more song oriented than Imaginations From the Other Side and not as aggressive. Hansi had at this point dropped the bas to concentrate fully on the vocals which meant that Oliver Holzwarth ( Sieges Even) was hired to play the bas on the album.

Im not too thrilled about the short interludes between the real songs, but I guess they help to emphasize the lyrics. Favorite songs are Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill), Into the Storm and Mirror Mirror.

This is just as good as Imaginations From the Other Side allthough Blind Guardian has emphazised other things on Nightfall in Middle-earth. But the quality remains really high.

UMUR | 4/5 |
