If you enjoy Power Metal then this is an album that will either be already in your collection or pretty high up on your to-do list; since 1990’s Tales Of The Twilight World by the German band Blind Guardian is a pretty big deal, this album helped the band reach new heights, helped the band to separate their style from precursor Thrash and Speed stylings and into more purely Power territory, as well as introducing the world to their concert favourite ballad ‘Lord Of The Rings.’

‘Twilight World occupies a sweet spot in the band’s discography where it still has all the raw charm of the early material, but introduces a lot of the tropes from their better known material, such as Queen-inspired harmonies, choral involvement and progressive structuring and arrangements. Hansi ‘s vocals are really developing into the style fans know and love and Kalle Trapp’s production job sounds even better than on the previous two records.

Like several other Blind Guardian albums; the album boasts guest appearances from other musical greats including Iron Saviour’s Piet Sielck and frequent collaborator, Gamma Ray’s Kai Hansen. The lyrics reference a lot of popular fiction, like Dune, E.T. And The Tommyknockers, as well as all the Tolkien you can expect from the band who famously made a whole concept album about the Salmarillion.

If you are into the catchy choruses, there’s plenty to love here, and you’ll be humming melodies from this record all week long after hearing it. If you are into the guitar heroism, the leads and solos are delightful as always, and if you want riffs there’s plenty of Thrash in here to get you excited.

If u like me like Blind Guardian then this is a must,it falls in just before Somewhere Far Beyond & you can see where the band are growing from the earlier dayz.The production is getting better but not as good as Imaginations.The music is as you expect fast & heavy with ripping guitar solos great melodic vocals & melodies.Hansi Kurschs vocals are just awesome as ever & some of the music could be squeezed onto the amazing Imaginations(which was 2 albums later).The tenth track on this is a bit of a gem also,its a live track from the Battalions Of Fear album & its pretty darn good to.If Blind Guardian really rocks your world then buy this now it truly is a classic among power metal!!!

To be honest, i do not like power metal as much as i addict to heavy and thrash, but the first three albums of Blind are more speed than power and i do like them.
But anyway, this is a great album with great songs, so if you like speed and melodic you should buy it.

This album is surely a classic.

The overall style is in between the rawer first two albums and their more complex later ones. This makes it special. It has the drive of the first albums but still great melody lines and with "Lord of the Rings" also a calm and atmospheric song. "Traveller in time" just sticks to your memory and is more complex than the rather straight, faster paced and great "Welcome to Dying". "Lost in the twilight Hall" is more composed/arranged than the straight "Goodbye my friend". Altair 4 is atmospheric and dark. Last candle then is an absolute masterpiece - great melody line and chorus.

The album reflects the transition from a raw to a very composed type of style.
Highly recommended.

Third album from Blind Guardian and although, it is a huge step up from their first two albums (wouldn't be that difficult), you will find that this is still a work in progress for the band.
They have certainly turned up the power, with most tracks offering blistering fast heavy power metal, however, still sounding rather raw.
We also start to see Hansi's vocals improving and a taste of the excellence to come, on future releases.
This has more of an epic feel to it with use of choirs and orchestral arrangements, again showing where Blind Guardian were heading.
Can't say there are any real stand out tracks, but it's not a bad listen.
Still with a slightly raw production, expect crashing metal and ruckus vocals (you may need the headache tablets on stand by).
As we now know, the better quality albums were yet to emerge.
