4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy successor to "Better than raw", 15 Jan. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Dark Ride (Audio CD)
After the stunning "Better than raw" album, I was looking forward to this one with a fair amount of anticipation. The press buildup (and, of course, the title) had lead me to expect a dark, moody album, and I was somewhat disappointed at first. The album begins with two almost unbearably happy sounding tracks, "Mr Torture" and "All over the nations". The next couple of tracks are OK, but nothing great, and it isn't until "If I could fly" that the album starts to get into full swing. From there on in, it's a great album, and fulfills much of the promise shown by the previous album, with "We damn the night" and the aforementioned "If I could fly" particularly standing out. The real gem, though, is "The departed (sun is going down)", which if pushed, I would have to say is the best track Helloween have ever recorded. It's head and shoulders about the rest. A strong album, but the comparatively weak opening tracks prevent it from getting a 5 star rating.
