For me Gamma Ray are THE melodic power metal band and have been for quite some time. This album is quite superb and has everything a Gamma Ray fan could possibly want.
"Majestic" was a definite move towards melodic metal which some fans didn't like - personally I thought it showed how variable and talented their song writing can be be and loved it.
Back to this album. The title is rather stupid as are most titles called II. Better titles could have been Return To The Land of The Free or I supose Land of The Free Chapter II.

However this album is not really a continuation of Land of The Free but more of a return to their tried and proven melodic power metal style.

If one wanted to be critical there are a few melodies and cliches 'stolen' from other songs / artists but it doesn't matter as it simply sounds great played by very talented musicians.

This is a real treat for those who like powerful rock but with melody and style. Not a weak song amongst the cannon here. Kai Hansen's vocals are accessible, with generally strong lyrics. I can never understand why bands like Gamma Ray are so criminally under-rated compared with the rubbish played on most radio stations etc (but what's new there?).

2007 has been a fabulous year for traditional sounding metal ( Helloween, Megadeth, Symphony X, Iced Earth, Manowar ) but Gamma Ray may well have pipped them all to the post for best of the year. Full of strong, infectious and melodious songs in typical euro power metal style...there really isn`t a weak track to be found. Kai Hansen`s vocal and guitar work are top notch as ever and there are so many stand out tracks...it`s one of those albums where you`re disappointed that each song ends and then excited as the next starts.

If you`ve never heard the band before think 80`s Maiden with a strong dose of early Helloween...this band have been banging out quality albums for years now and with Land of the Free II show no signs of slowing down.

Listening to Gamma Ray stuff is a bit like a time travel for me. There is a bit of the old stuff mixed with quite dense sound. There is something special about Kai and his team and it's no different this time. Classic.

Land Of The Free II, from 2007, is the ninth full-length studio album by the legendary German Melodic Power Metal band Gamma Ray. It is titled as a sequel to the band’s seminal classic album Land Of The Free, and musically it sometimes picks up a few riffs and melodies from that record and reworks them into new tracks.

This record is not held in high esteem by a lot of the band’s fans and critics. Partly that is because the idea of doing a sequel to Land Of The Free (which isn’t even a full on concept album to begin with so the need for a story sequel isn’t even necessary) after such a big gap just seems like an off-putting idea, and forever-doomed to negative comparisions to the fantastic original from the offset and secondly because the band are accused of running out of ideas.

How much you enjoy this record will depend primarily on how much you don’t mind hearing the band rework old music (or indeed nick Iron Maiden breakdowns almost wholesale and your opinion on whether it is tribute or theft). Do you enjoy a sense of familiarity or not?

If we overlook those issues, there are some absolutely blinding moments on this record, including the flashy eleven minute album-closer “Insurrection,” as well as the ridiculously catchy ode to atheism that is “Real World” and the exciting, chunky “Rain.”

Add to these strong songs, an absolutely flawless slick production, some of Kai’s most polished vocals to date and the fact that actually the band do explore some new territory here and try things at a slower pace than usual. Top it all off with the lush sing-along choruses, glorious uplifting lead guitar melodies and delicious drum fills you would expect from Gamma Ray and you have a very solid record.
