5.0 out of 5 stars Mandrake, 2 Sept. 2008
By 
This review is from: Mandrake (Audio CD)
Most Edguy fans consider this to be their best album their `magnum opus', I think this is a very accurate description as this is truly genius. Edguy's best ever song appears that song that being `Tears of a Mandrake'. I find this to be a very strong album with few weaknesses, but then again it can be argued that no album is without some weakness regardless how small. So with this in mind `Mandrake' is probably as close to perfect as a song gets. I would have liked a cover song just for even more variety and brilliance such as Iron Maiden's `The Trooper' or Metallica's `Fade to Black' as well. This is definitely the best of Edguy's Pure Power Metal albums, because after this they changed their style to more Hard Rock orientated. There isn't a real weak song although `Wash Away the Poison' could have been stronger especially the solo, and although `The Pharaoh' is good as an epic IMO it is out done by `Eyes of the Tyrant'. `Golden Dawn' is the fastest here, and `Fallen Angels', `Jerusalem', `Painting on the Wall', `All the Clowns', `Devil and the Savant' and `Wings of a Dream' are all brilliant well above averages songs with interesting arrangements. `Nailed to the Wheel' is the only real Hard Rock/Metal song here and is a sign of what is to come on `Hellfire Club'. `Save Us Now' is a silly song with a nice drum solo and a vocal part that sounds like Tobias on Helium.
