Rocket Ride is a stunning blend of power metal, hard rock and humour that appeals to just about everyone, yet it's hard to imagine that this is the same band that just a few years earlier released Vain Glory Opera, who are now releasing Bon Jovi-esque ballads (see: Save Me). However, this is not a bad thing in the slightest, they pull it off perfectly. Of course, there's the 'typical' Edguy song - on this particular album, it's Trinidad (working title: Unfunny - Chapter 42953).
Of course, "unfunny" is just what Edguy are not. Tobias Sammet has a certain way with words, his lyrics are both clever and touching, and the music never overpowers them, but it's never just in the background. The whole thing fits perfectly, from the frankly amazing opening track (Sacrifice), to the end.
Edguy are at the top of their game with this album, they have the capability to become the world's biggest power metal band, all they need is for the music press outside of Europe to sit up and take notice, and with this album they've probably done it.
