5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, textured metal, 15 Mar 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Twilight Time (Audio CD)
This is great stuff from start to finish and fans of more recent stratovarius should defeintly seek it out: this is not a straightforward power emtal album, for intstance there is no big vocal choirs at the chorus, it is more simple than that and also more progressive: there are quite a few slow tracks that get heavy and simply slow tracks, like every strato album: that IS what they specialise in, but this album is actually one of their more straightforward albums, and the result is VERY good. OUT OF THE SHADOWS is akin to the opener, and is also great, very powerfull, but the albums two best tracks are TWILIGHT TIME, a progressive, and stunningly powerfull, haunting song, and THE HANDS OF TIME, very similar to twilight time, very progressive, and VERY VERY good: it is one of strato's best tunes (and it really does have a great tune).
all in all this is essentialy a faultless album, with no weak tracks, a great closing balad, great vocals and a a cool rough and ready distant like production, which i think ADDS to the albums sound.
A Faultless album. one of their best. buy this now if you are a fan of this band!

5.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric/Dark power-heavy metal at its best and most pure., 10 July 2009
This review is from: Twilight Time (Audio CD)
I wont go into much detail here. Suffice to say this is a well produced CD from a growing band. Its much darker than the bands latest releases.

It also features EX-guitarist and songwriter Timo Tolkki on vocals and lead guitar.... his vocals are more gritty and aggressive than Kotipelto's, and in my opinion are certainly more suited to strato's earlier works

A great album and an important piece on strato's history.

85/100

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure metal. Simply great! There is melody even in metal!, 6 Mar 2002
This review is from: Twilight Time (Audio CD)
Like all the other albuns, this band really knows how to take the melody of an electric guitar (Timo Tolkki always in his best!!). Kotipelto making his voice go to the limits, still in evolution, but becoming the voice of one of the best albuns i've ever heard (Destiny). One word? "BUYIT"!
