It is hard to find an album as good as this anywhere ....
If Metallica produced an album half as good as this it would have probably sold 20million ....
Masterplan, definately a supergroup for the new millenium
Jorn Lande is, as usual, on top form with his vocals but my main interest in this group is the lead guitarist and founder of Masterplan, Roland Grapow. While he is on form on this album I don't think he has put any guitar solos out which match those on the first album. The album, however, is very varied and interesting throughout. The only quibble I have with it is that there are 2 ballads - a few more than most of us metal fans would like to see on one album. They are both good but I'd have preferred just the one.
Standout tracks are: 'I'm Not Afraid' - superb intro and solo, 'Headbangers' Ballroom' - this chugs along happily and puts you in a superb mood - a great rocker. The very best track on the album however is the final track 'Black in the Burn' - at 9 minutes 44 seconds, a proper epic. This track starts off fairly ordinarily but soon takes you on a wild journey with some great thrashy solo sections of several minutes. Roland is on absolutely top form on this track. Musically the track is excellent the whole way through and gets better with every minute. As a commenter on YouTube said about it, "what a journey" - says it all!
WOUNDS (track 3) is outstanding.... but wait till u here Headbangers ballroom!!! WOW ......all the songs are great........but I never thought I'd say this but YES ..........JORDE's vocals ARE BETTER than HANSI KURSCH's ! (Blind Guardian/Demons and Wizards project)PLEASE BUY ONE EACH FOR MEMBERS OF YOUR FAMILY!!! WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
If you liked ARK, you will like this. The guy sounds like David Coverdale some say, but Masterplan is how a modern David Coverdale led outfit should sound.
Best money you'll spend this year.
"After this war" is a moment of solace, as Masterplan deliver an emotional and passionate ballad:- guided by Jorn's highly commanding and versatile voice. "Into the arena" is another excellent song which is propelled again by Jorn's soaring vocals, while "dark from the dying" I could easily consider another key highlight from this 10 track selection. "Falling Sparrow" is a memorable and catchy entity to lead into the near 10 minute masterpiece of "Black in the burn" which harks back to some of the work Jorn did with Beyond Twilight.
I beleive Aeronautics is probably one of the best albums yet from Masterplan. It is certainly a different brand of typical power metal sameness so often seen in the genre, which is graced by an untouchable vocal from Jorn; an addition of which is likely worth a star rating alone. So this is likely a better than competant power metal album with a range of catchy melodies/choruses underpinning it. One or two here fail to hit the mark, but overall this is a very enjoyable album and one I'd be happy to return to again. *The special edition digibook contains the fairly average bonus track:- "Treasure World" with a extra addition of a multimedia section included.,
