Remember when Jorn was at the height of his powers? When his melodic rock voice could get no better? This is the album that for me showed he had come of age. Roland Grapow also shoes that he is no slouch in this beautifully crafted metal album. For me the stand out track is Enlighten me. It must rank as one of the best melodic metal anthems ever, it is such a pity the song did not catch the public attention. There is not one bad track on this album.

I found this to be one enjoyable album. I especially loved "Spirit Never Dies" as one message in that song is never to give up, no matter how hard things get and I also like "Heroes" a lot. This is one excellent CD.

Amazing debut from this melodic metal supergroup 30 Nov. 2010
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The melodic metal supergroup Masterplan, featuring former Helloween members Roland Grapow and Uli Kusch and Norwegian super-vocalist Jorn Lande, released their self-titled debut in 2003. Masterplan has since become a dominant force in melodic metal, and this is where it all began.

This is a near-flawless melodic metal album. Any album with Jorn Lande is an automatic winner for me, and he gives an amazing performance here, sounding at once like David Coverdale and the late, great Ronnie James Dio. Lande gives Masterplan a classic hard rock/heavy metal element, and Grapow and Kusch (plus Iron Savior bassist Jan Eckert) provide a German power metal backbone. Throw in some killer keyboards from Children of Bodom's Janne Wirman and a duet with Lande and former Helloween singer Michael Kiske (on "Heroes") and Masterplan becomes that much more of an "all-star" album.

Masterplan manages to strike a perfect balance between power metal heaviness and melodic rock accessibility. It's heavy enough, but the melodies are so infectious that you'll either end end up air drumming or singing along (or both!) with every song. There really isn't much point listing the best tracks, because the whole album is amazing. If I had to choose my favorites, I'd go with "Enlighten Me," "Kind Hearted Light" and "Heroes," which is about as close to a classic Helloween reunion song as you're likely to get.

This is one of the strongest debut albums in recent memory, and is one that should appeal to just about anyone who is a fan of melodic, power and/or progressive metal. If you follow bands like Last Tribe, Starbreaker, Pretty Maids, Vanden Plas, Saint Deamon, and of course Jorn's solo material, you'll simply have to check out Masterplant.

Edition Notes: There is a limited edition version of Masterplan that comes in a nice digibook (though the sleeves that hold the discs can lead to scratching) and includes a bonus disc with video content. I love the "Enlighten Me" video, so I had to have this version of the album.

.... 16 July 2008
By Farrell Trinity - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been hooked by Jorn Lande's voice - Ark: Burn the Sun being one of my favourite albums of all time. This album affords us the opportunity to hear more of that amazing voice and he is backed by a more than competent set of musicians here. It is just not as creative and original - and therefore "progressive" - as the Ark project. That being said, I still LOVE this album. It has many high points for me and I can (and have been all evening) quietly enjoy it and slip off into another world with my headphones in place. I would highly recommend this album (and all the other Masterplan with Jorn) and have done with friends. Enjoy!

Very good but..... 24 Feb. 2003
By Dr Nick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been following Jorn for a while, ever since he toured (briefly) with Yngwie. And I love some of his stuff, especially Ark (Burn The Sun is one of my favourite CD's this millenium). His second solo CD (Worldchanger) is also very good, as was his CD with Millenium (Hourglass).
For me, Masterplan is a slight backwards step. I miss the diversity and virtuosity of Ark (Jorn was apparently fired for refusing to commit long-term to the project).
The style is straightforward power metal, on the whole, and yes, they do it very well. Hints of Whitesnake crop up, and one could also draw comparisons with Helloween in the rhythm section (not surprisingly, guitarist and drummer both hail from their ranks).
But part of the joy of Ark was the way they changed things around, tried something different, and basically had a blast.
Also, Roland Grapow is a good guitarist, but not quite in the same league as Tore Ostby, who could probably match Yngwie note for note and be original too. His solos are short, bluesy metal, and to the point. Some will no doubt prefer this to seemingly endless shredding, I just happen to use Yngwie and related players as a benchmark.
The bass + keys are solid, but not especially original. The drummer is excellent, no question, perhaps the closest this band gets to the talent in Ark.
Actually Jorn's vocals are probably the best thing on the CD, which says a lot for his ability to write a memorable melody and lyric, and deliver it to a high standard regardless of the setting. In fact, to be fair, the songwriting is pretty good overall, and a couple of songs (Enlighten Me in particular) are superb.
There are certainly some very good songs here, and I know I'll enjoy this album - but Ark (Burn the Sun) will remain my favourite.
Masterplan= masterpiece 16 Feb. 2014
By Sofoklis Tzimogiannis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the reason why we listen to heavy metal...this album here. It really makes me feel good!
Awesome vocals, great inspiration, powerful songs, great solos and complete songs that don't get boring by long solos, or change in the rhythm just for the sake of longer duration and filling in the song.
There is only one mediocre song in the whole album.
If you like avantasia, helloween, sonata arctica, blind guardian etc and power metal in general you should have this album.
If you like jorn you should also have this album and burn the sun by ark!
No wonder they couldn't match the songwriting in their next albums.
My only complaint which really isn't the bands fault or anyones fault for that matter is the duration of how long someone can listen to this kind of music compared to progressive power metal.
For instance at least for me after 100 times of listening i'll get bored maybe. But it will take way way longer to get bored with ark's burn the sun, or symphony x's odyssey, or maybe the new dream theater album the enemy within.
Yet again for a power metal album there are a lot of progressive elements mixed that make it better than any deris helloween album, yet never too much progressive in order to become difficult like the two last blind guardian albums
Simply Amazing 28 Nov. 2011
By Thomas Garcia - Published on Amazon.com

Masterplan's debut album does not disappoint. Simply a must have for any power metal fan. In fact, this album introduced me to the power metal genre. Jorn's voice is phenomenal, Roland's guitar playing is unbelievable, Uli's drum skill is incomparable... the lyrics are definitely the album's high point. Such inspiring music! Please do yourself a favor and buy this CD and support Masterplan!
