5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking, 25 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Wings Of Steel (limited Digi) (Audio CD)
This is the first album without the founder member of the band Luca Turilli. These great musicians recorded some 10 albums since 1997 under the name of RHAPSODY and RHAPSODY OF FIRE. All great albums ,with fantastic melodies and arrangements. So what will really happen ,when one of the geniuses of the band leaves. Is is bad or good? We have the answer. The new album is one of the best what came out under this bands name. The production is excellent ,the songs are fresh and exciting uplifting and a pure delight. I am glad there is no harsh vocals any more ,since I am not a fan of that though they did not use it a lot. Fabio has a wonderful voice and I rather listen his pure and clear voice. "Rising From Tragic Flames" and "Silver Lake Of Tears" are the 2 best songs but I love all the tunes on the cd. So RHAPSODY OF FIRE survived the big loss of Luca Turilli and created a true masterpiece.It wont leave my IPOD for a long time. It is a great listen during driving.

Hello,
Although i don't personally rate this album as highly as yourself it's far from some of the negative reviews i have seen regarding it.I do however actually rate this album HIGHER than Luca Turilli's solo efforts and it DOES go to show that a band can indeed survive the departure of a major player (Deep Purple's " Perpendicular "album is second only to "In Rock" in terms of musical quality despite the absence of Ritchie Blackmore).So it's a brave but nonetheless sensible decision for Alex Staropoli and Fabio Leone to continue with a new guitarist who can bring his own ideas to the table.

I feel that Rhapsody have deliberately steered towards a more straightforward path here and all the better for it because since "Power of the Dragonflame" (for me their musical peak with Turilli) the band had steadily lost creativity as regards writing quality (just my own opinion.)

My favorite track on "Dark Wings" is the wonderful "A Tale Of Magic".
