Re: Blind Guardian's Twilight Orchestra - "Legacy of the Dark Lands" (The Orchestral Project)

you are right it is not comparable, children of the smith had no 23 years in the making (composing wise), nor such a big orchestra or production, nor was it composed by BG, its purpose was a game soundtrack, not a lifetime work and contains e-guitars. None or less i prefer Hansis singing there more ...

It's got sort of the same problem as At the Edge of Time (the song), where every time there's an interesting melodic idea, it eventually wanders off into...

hard to fully receive meant that the pre-listening journalist can't make a full review about the album and after a second, third or fourth listening some of his words might change.
