5.0 out of 5 stars Vanden Plas Excellence 29 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
Packing Drama and Power the like that many have never heard, Vanden Plas return to set the mark for others to aim for. From the offset Beyond Daylight shows itself to be a varied and addictive piece of work. Tasteful keyboards, seering vocals and a rhythm section that can only be measured on the richter scale gives Vanden Plas that winning combination of technical excellence and structure that few bands can match.
What makes this album standout though (even among the prog-metal hordes) is the way that each track on the album seems to posess it`s own character. From the mysterious title track to the passionate Scarlet Flower Fields you never feel as if you are simply listening to just another album, it`s more akin to reading an enchanting book of short stories,
Technically speaking Vanden Plas certainly have enough power behind them to be an all out metal act, but they pay more attention to melody and structure than you would normally find on an album of this nature.
Overall this album scores on every level whilst retaining a uniqueness so hard to find these day`s.
I would definately reccomend this album to anyone who likes there metal served with a twist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent prog metal 15 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
A man in a shop recommended these guys. Essentially they area German prog/power metal band, who are similar in some ways to early '90's Dream Theater. Certainly they are in the same league musically. The main difference is the vocals - the songer isn't quite as powerful as James LaBrie, and doesn't do much in the way of screaming. Instead he choruses are layered, filling out the vocals, and producing some very nice harmonies.
And that's the real strength of this CD - the songwriting is outstanding. The songs have a good solid chorus to hang onto, whilst containing the instrumental breaks we all love (don't we!), and these guys have delivered ballads, fast numbers, mid-tempo tunes, and they're all great.
Production is extremely high standard too.
Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Brilliance... 6 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album is the fourth full-length by German progressive metal band Vanden Plas. Some say that these guys are simply Dream Theater clones who just steal the styles of the musicians in Dream Theater, however this is simply not true. Vanden Plas have definitely been influenced a lot by Dream Theater but they use their influence in a very refreshing way. With much more emotional and heavy music than Dream Theater, Vanden Plas should not be written off as a simple clone.

I see this album as Vanden Plas's magnum opus. This album truly is the pinnacle of their achievements so far and it includes some of my favourite progressive metal songs ever such as the album's epic `Beyond Daylight' and the incredibly beautiful `Scarlet Flower Fields', the latter of which always makes me think of romance and summer rain in a beautiful garden, a combination that should make even the most hardened metalhead's eyes glaze over.

The guitar on this album is spectacular, some people might immediately write Stephan Lill off as being a John Petrucci copyist but, while he does have a similar style to Petrucci, Lill's playing is actually much darker and, at times, heavier. On `Phoenix' and `Free the fire' Lill's playing has a very aggressive and heavy edge that Petrucci has never had. Also on the Kansas cover `Point of Know Return' Lill's playing is much heavier than I would have expected creating a nice spin on the original song.

Andy Kuntz's vocals reminded me a lot of James Labrie at first but after listening to the album a few times I realised that in many ways Kuntz's voice is very different to Labrie's. Kuntz carries more emotion in his voice and he also has a much deeper voice than Labrie.
