5.0 out of 5 stars The best got better!, 22 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Ultra Beatdown (Audio CD)
Upon listening to this CD for the first time, my initial impression was not all good. I felt the intro's and endings were a bit bizarre, as if some errors of judgement had been made while putting the tracks together. However, I have had similar experiences before with albums which I soon came to enjoy. So I listened to Ultra Beatdown again the next day and, sure enough, it grew on me. Like certain foods and drinks, this CD may be "an acquired taste" for some, as it was for me!

Now, Ultra Beatdown has become my favourite Dragonforce CD - although they are all awesome! Dragonforce are some of the most highly skilled musicians in their genre - and indeed in any genre! Another great thing about them is that they don't take themselves too seriously; they obviously love what they do, and that comes across clearly without any pretensions. They have been compared to Helloween and I think that's a fair comparison - their music is epic! Their songs have so much going on that it's impossible to get bored of them! I have listened to at least one Dragonforce CD in full, most days, for the last 2 or 3 years! That may sound a bit fanatical but I simply view it as the greatest compliment anyone can give to a band.

So, if you are a metal fan and have enjoyed Dragonforce's previous music, buy this CD; if it doesn't strike a chord with you first time round, listen to it again and very soon you will love it!

Highly recommended!
