Music – Blind Guardian – A Night at the Opera

About a month ago, I started listening to Blind Guardian and I have to recommend their CD “A Night at the Opera”. One of my main complaints about music in general is the preponderance of CDs which only have one or two good songs. This definitely breaks through that.

From “A Night at the Opera”, I recommend:
* Battlefield
* Under the Ice
* Sadly Sings Destiny
* The Maiden and the Minstrel Knight
* The Soulforged
* Age of False Innocence
* Punishment Divine
* And Then There Was Silence

Which leaves only three songs I wouldn’t have paid for if buying them individually. Add to that, the fact that “And Then There Was Silence” is 14 minutes long (I love long, good songs) and we have a winner. The average review for this CD on is 4.5/5 and I’m giving it 5/5. As one reviewer put it, if you like any Metallica or Iron Maiden song at all, you’ll probably like at at least a few Blind Guardian songs. As I put it, they’re metal fused with classical and ballads.
