Re: Blind Guardian!

A lot of people tell me A Night At The Opera is a must get album too. Have seen it maybe once or twice in shops.

Re: Blind Guardian!

Yes that should one of the ones on the top of your list! One of their BEST albums Riff...I would suggest that one next time you have a chance.

As far as this new CD, it's their first 25 years best of CD, with all the songs remixed except for one, and three of them re-recorded including that orchestral version of Bard's Song.

Re: Blind Guardian!

Its a best of? Sounds awesome the remix songs but that does give a slightly deflated feeling lol not a big fan of best of albums or compilations in general. The reason I say this is if I end up with their entire discography which at some stage I will then it would be pointless getting the best of cd.

Re: Blind Guardian!

Nightfall...is my favorite but I have almost all of their albums. I am disappointed the new CD is just a compilation, the labels can't fool me any longer by throwing "remastered" on the jacket.

If they have gone back to the original recordings and actually "remixed" them like Wilson has done with some legendary albums then I will at least give the new release a listen.

Re: Blind Guardian!

^^I think our chances of getting another "Demons & Wizards" record first are better than a new BG album MP.

A Night At The Opera was simply amazing to listen to. I mean it is hard to pick a favourite song from it they were all awesome. Glad to get heavy into this band again after quite a gap.
