Coming out from a law-suit (after their label change) and a huge line-up change, which leaves legendary guitarist-songwriter Kai Hansen out of the band, Helloween come back with "Pink Bubbles Go Ape". An album bashed by music critics due to the fact that the band changed their music, to a small effect, when compared to their highly praised Keeper Of The Seven Keys records. All in all a memorable album with several highlights and a strong release if compared to many future outputs of the band.

"Pink Bubbles..." admitably has a really strange, even silly title but this is not the case with the song writing. The music departs from the continuous double-bass power metal stile and is enriched with blues and rock influences, together with some more mainstream ideas as well. Some songs are softer than the usual tracks found on the Keeper records, reminding more of melodic metal than power metal, but that's not a drawback for sure.

Without diving into each and every song, I'm going to name only the outstanding ones! "The Chance" is a mid-paced heavy metal anthem. The song contains some of the album's best vocals, an infectious chorus, a jaw dropping guitar solo, impressive bass lines and is the most known track from this release. "Mankind" is a great progressive epic, with wonderful musical and vocal variations. "Someone's Crying" is the only song that could be categorized as pure power metal (fast double-base drumming), a truly memorable track with fast guitar solos, a wonderful chorus and impressive drumming, that hankers back to the band's previous outputs. "Kids of the Century" is another fast song with clever lyrics, another great chorus and outstanding guitar solos. Finally, "Your Turn" is a beautiful rock/blues ballad with amazing vocals.

Helloween diverge further from their speed metal roots, although several songs are fast paced, with this diverse collection of songs. This sees the band pushing the leading edge of the so-called power metal movement (heavy metal with melody) with bits of prog-metal and symphonic rock thrown in for good measure.
As with 'Keepers .. part II', many of the lyrics are upbeat. The tongue in-cheek 'Heavy Metal Hamsters' opens with the riff from Deep Purple's 'Rat Bat Blues'. Recommended.
Highlights: 'Kids Of The Century' power metal on speed, the excellent mid-paced 'Number One' with its catchy melodic chorus and the first appearance of the band's trademark vocal/guitar harmony hook, the epic 'Mankind', the face-paced 'The Chance', the power ballad 'Your Turn'

Well!! When this album came out I was a huge huge Helloween fan. I had all the records theyd brought out thus far, had seen them absolutely slay live in Edinburgh on the Keepers Part II tour and I had waited and waited to see what they would come out with next.

I was surprised when I first heard the title but still eagerly awaiting the record. I was fairly impressed with the lead in single Kids of the Century, indeed its still a cool track today. But when I finally got my mitts on a copy of the full record, to say i was confused would be putting it mildly.

I still cannot see to this day, the logical progression from the epic twin set of the Keepers albums to this mish mash of euro pop/metal and a song called Heavy Metal Hamsters. Its not that the record is really that bad its just.....where had our Helloween gone???

Some decent songs but very strange for Helloween and the beginning of the decline.

Taken as a poppy Metal album Pink Bubbles Go Ape is a great listen. I loved it as a youth, but listening again after nearly 20 years, Helloween do sound like suspiciously like Iron Maiden at times, with singer Michael Kiske doing his best Bruce Dickinson impression. However Kiske is great with a pop hook, and he can reach a ridiculously high register, which sets them apart. Some tracks are corny (Number One, Back On The Streets) and unmemorable (I'm Doing Fine, Crazy Man). The best bits outweigh the bad though. Love the quirky acoustic title track, and Kids Of The Century is a total anthem. Goin Home & Someone's Crying are first rate melodic rock songs. Highlight of the album is the majestic Mankind, almost a prog rock song during the verses, but then a delightful nursery rhyme-like chorus. Closer Your Turn is a lovely ballad, which avoids being cheesy somehow, but I am not sure quite how. All-in-all Pink Bubbles Go Ape is a guilty pleasure.

This is a great album with a lot of replay value. The songs are quite fast paced and the whole band works together brilliantly throughout. Fantastic vocals. This is one of Helloweens best albums and possibly the most underrated.
