This is just a short review, this album is AWESOME. It sounds something like a mix between Cradle of Filth and Iron Maiden, or maybe Iron Maiden covering Cradle of Filth (rather than the reverse, which has been done)
it shouldn't work, it is incoherant, inconsistant, has four tracks (redone) from the previous album, sometimes Lee sings, sometimes he sings badly, sometimes he sings in duet (which with his deep voice sounds great), sometimes he is hardly in the songs (it's a concept album telling a narrative so there are many characters) you cannot tell the characters apart, the lyrics are laughably terrible, some of the acting and sound effects are even worse, the story is hard to follow, an early song sounds likes climatic, his mid-life crisis also sounds like it is a deathbed confession, even the first track (an intro) goes off in about four different directions

it should be the worst album ever

But it is just so DAMN AWESOME, I have been playing it over and over for days,

it is awesome

This is the first time i have listen to Christopher Lee talent in music I have been a fan of his since my early days, Saturday night of horror.
So i thought to give this a try, what can i say it is a history lesson with a rock/ metal feel unusual mix puts a smile on my face thank you Mr Lee

I still remember watching many horror films and Dracula with Christopher Lee! Now imagine him doing an epic movie!
This cd is it! An epic movie just for the ears! The metal runs in the vein this warrior with 92 years!
Simply The Best!

This album is undoubtedly better than the first with more stimulating music and less speaking. Don't get me wrong, I really like Christopher Lee's voice, but this time they have the balance of voice to music spot on. However' in conjunction with album one it supplies a fascinating story, based on truth, of Charlemagne's life. Worth owning.

Great LP cover but let down by the quality of the recording. I have a mid range plus system but at times Christopher Lee's voice is very much in the background and hardly distinguishable-drowned out by the music. It reminds me of the "War of the Worlds."-Richard Burton's voice definitely not in the background!

The master himself. A heavy metal soundtrack. What is not to love.

This is unusual. Christopher Lee singing to heavy metal tunes. He is a fine actor, and not bad as a singer either. I have not regretted buying this album, and plan to buy the other album at a later date.

This was a wonderful album especially Sir Christopher lee in it, the cover illustration of Christopher as King Charlemange is awesome.

Absolutely amazed what Christopher Lee has done hear.. Just couldn't believe what I was hearing.. The guy is 92 .. The Album is a concept album which tells the story of Charemagne a historical true event.. Love the driving metal tracks .
