The "Mystery Of Time" is the sixth studio album by Tobias Sammet's rock opera project. Avantasia offers a very good new album that rivals some of its past achievements. The use of a real orchestra proves to be a welcome addition, creating a bigger and more captivating sound.

The cast of musicians includes Tobias Sammet (Edguy) on bass and lead vocals, Sascha Paeth (ex-Heaven's Gate) on guitars, Russell Gilbrook (Uriah Heep) on drums and guest guitarists Bruce Kulick (ex-Kiss, ex-Meat Loaf), Oliver Hartmann (ex-At Vance) and Arjen Anthony Lucassen (Ayreon). The Mystery Of Time is also the first Avantasia album to feature the German Film Orchestra Babelsberg.

The list of guest vocalists is expectedly impressive and includes Joe Lynn Turner (ex-Rainbow, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen), Biff Byford (Saxon), Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween, Unisonic), Ronnie Atkins (Pretty Maids), Eric Martin (Mr. Big), Bob Catley (Magnum) and Cloudy Yang.

The album offers a variety of hard rock, symphonic rock, power metal and pop-rock. The overall sound doesn't differ a lot from The Wicked Trilogy releases, but the orchestra surely makes things more interesting and the vocals are more evenly distributed.

There are many highlights among the songs and only two of them sound rather weak or filler-like. There are several longer songs and even two ten-minute epics, but surprisingly none of them gets tiresome or boring.

The best track is probably the longest song, entitled "Savior In The Clockwork". This is a varied track, with several tempo changes, but it is essentially a hard rock epic with some doses of power metal.

This album takes a few times to listen to it before it grows on you.
Hard to capture the majesty of The Metal Operas but this is not a bad effort.
Great guest appearances by the likes of Biff Byford et al and of course Michael Kiske.A pity Felix Bohnke isn`t on the drums this time but you can`t have everything.
I liked 1)Spectres and 4)Where Clock Hands Freeze.5) Sleepwalking isn`t a bad power ballad if a little commercial.

The latest AVANTASIA album released today is here! I have been looking forward to this album for quite some time and it doesn't disappoint.

Tobias Sammet (the lead singer and founder of the band) is superb! His vocals are unique and he has a voice you can enjoy. This is a METAL OPERA album - meaning it Incorporates a number of household names in the Metal genre (power metal predominantly) such as Michael Kiske, Ronnie Atkins, Amanda Summerville and Bob Catley

If you like bands such as Rhapsody Of Fire, Sonata Arctica, Helloween, Gamma Ray, Reinxeed etc etc, you will like this. Some great songs with a variety of singers and sounds.

I have just finished listening through this and I have to say I was extremely impressed and it deserves a review for those of you contemplating the purchase of this epic album - simple decision - its a fantastic album worthy of being in anyone's music library!!!

If it's the first Avantasia album you've heard then great, you'll like it. If not, then so very similar to Wicked symphony and Angel of Babylon. Also, the quality of the recording isn't great, very flat on all formats. In fact it sounds like it was recorded on compact cassette. This is a shame because it does weaken the album somewhat. The Scarecrow remains by the far best album. Was hoping for more as the concept behind it was a fantastic idea.

This is a different but very good album. It has all the Avantasia hooks with good choruses great guitar playing and first class songs.
A good addition for Eguy fans and excellent for Avantasia fans.

Have all of Tobias' CD with Avantasia. Played the Scarecrow the most, but have given this one a battering too. All tracks are worthy.
