knows Michael Kiske has had a huge impact on the power metal scene, and
the contribution to how the scene is today is something no one can ever
take away from him, and to this date he remains one of my favorite metal
the journey he has taken since leaving Helloween has been bumpy to say
the least. And the re-release of this album - originally released in
1996 - isn't going to change that one bit.
one is however a tad better than the new self-titled solo-album, but I
wish Michael Kiske would accept the fact, that his voice is a much
better fit for metal, than for rock!
reissue does add some treats for Kiske fan's with the inclusion of 3
brand new songs: "I Don't Deserve Love", "Sacred Grounds"
& "Can't Tell", plus the original bonus track for Japan:
"A Song Is Just A Moment". And along with the few good songs
on this album: "The Calling" & "New Horizons" -
both with Kai Hansen on guitars - the cool ballad: "Always"
and the 10 minutes plus epic: "Do I Remember a Life?" - along
with Kiske's vocal acrobatics throughout the album makes this a decent
release, but nothing more...
If you are a huge Kiske fan and have missed out
on this album before, then don't miss out on this opportunity to
complete your Kiske collection with this album. To all others - do
consider if you shouldn't buy Place Vendome or an old Helloween album
