Worthwhile deluxe pick up.,
This review is from: Keeper Of The Seven Keys (Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
It's excellent that many of these old classic albums are getting the deluxe treatment recently, Black sabbath, Rainbow amongst a few others. Helloween parts 1 & 2 however remain the quintessential power metal albums of all time. And so there isn't too much to discuss here; basically, these two albums have undergone a courteously remastered/brushed up process. (which ever you would like to call it.) and sent out as a combined package, There is a medium'ish incentive to buy this though:- Helloween deluxe edition ultimately is what it is, a relatively simple digipak transmission of the two albums from the expanded edition sets from two down to one.
It's certainly the way they should have always been since they are both essentially albums which have from the same mold, and they look really good together too in this set despite the loss of the artwork from the second Helloween release; which as far as my knowledge goes isn't showcased, makes this deluxe then a definite worthwhile pick up. It's a reasonably priced, reasonable deluxe item and and a certainly above reasonable double album. And although this is absolutely essential for new fans and introductions to the power metal genre, fans which are maybe already accustomed to the music of Helloween may decide to give this a miss if they already have the two albums. Becouse: there are virtually no extras on here that can't be found elsewhere. Good package but not amazing.
