It seems the boys from Edguy can do no wrong. Every single album they have released has been exceptionally good power metal, or at least, until Hellfire Club. Power metal taking a very eighties hard rock twist? Who'd have ever thought of such a thing! However, it seems Tobias and the gang have found a musical direction that really suits them.
Rocket Ride is a stunning blend of power metal, hard rock and humour that appeals to just about everyone, yet it's hard to imagine that this is the same band that just a few years earlier released Vain Glory Opera, who are now releasing Bon Jovi-esque ballads (see: Save Me). However, this is not a bad thing in the slightest, they pull it off perfectly. Of course, there's the 'typical' Edguy song - on this particular album, it's Trinidad (working title: Unfunny - Chapter 42953).
Of course, "unfunny" is just what Edguy are not. Tobias Sammet has a certain way with words, his lyrics are both clever and touching, and the music never overpowers them, but it's never just in the background. The whole thing fits perfectly, from the frankly amazing opening track (Sacrifice), to the end.
Edguy are at the top of their game with this album, they have the capability to become the world's biggest power metal band, all they need is for the music press outside of Europe to sit up and take notice, and with this album they've probably done it.

This album got a really good review on Melodic Rock.Com so i took a gamble & purchased it. I`m glad i did ! Edguy are one of the best modern metal bands around & its no accident. They write great tunes that you`ll actually walk around singing. There a Power metal band for sure but they obviously believe in having decent songs to. This version comes in a book type package. As the previous review has stated there kinda like Iron Maiden crossed with Magnum but they lean more towards Maiden than Magnum to be fair. Theres also touches of Queensryche in there to. I`m a big fan of Pagans Mind & untill there next album comes along this will do nicely. If you like Great Power Metal with songs & riffs you can singalong to then this is highly recommended. This is one of the best releases this year [ 2006] Dont Hesitate go buy.

I grew up with Van Halen, Dio, Sabbath, Purple, Blackfoot, UFO, Maiden and the NWOBHM bands of the eighties. Good old rock n roll never dies and EDGUY prove that hard rock of the old fashioned variety still rules. This album is clean, with great riffs and is lots of fun. No one worships any devils, no blood is spilt and no one is avenged sevenfold. If you like Trivium, walk away now. EDGUY are superior in a Van Halenesque sense, there aint a duff song on the album - buy it. Up there with Rainbows Long Live Rock and Roll and UFO's "stangers....".
