I listened to this yesterday, I hadn't heard it before and realised it is on the "Another stranger me" single. It is an OK song, but I didn't think it was anywhere near as good as "Harvest of sorrow", which I think is a genuinely sad song. Still, BG has the uncanny ability of making their songs mean different things to different people, which is probably why they are so popular.

I had to cry the first time I heard it. It is so very beautiful IMO. And sad. And sung with so much feeling. (Yes, I'm getting all sentimental again...)

Harvest of Sorrow -being a ballad as well- is completely different. But no less beautiful ;)
n.p.: Harvest of Sorrow (acoustic :P )

The remixed version of Brian. Goddamn, this is amazing! Such a vast improvement over the original! For some reason, Hansi sounds much more like himself on this version!

Each step I take,
May it hurt may it ache
Leads me further
Away from the past!
But as long as I breathe,
Each smile in my bleak face,
I'm on my way to find
Back to the peace of mind!

You're The Voice is a cover of an old pop song. And I love it. They had to stay true to the style of the original so it's not like BG's original work which most Blind Guardian fans will like automatically.

You don't say?! ;)

I think they could have done a better version still. The guitars should be louder, Hansi should scream a bit more, and these synths should disappear after the first half of the song, second half being right in your face. Just like BG are usually wont to do with their covers.

I discover more and more new things in the song every time I listen to it.
It has a lot of complexity, it might need a few plays to see the beauty of it.

Under the Ice (live version from Live CD2), much better than the studio version.
Amazing song and lyrical concept.

That's one song the lyrics of which I could never quite figure out... I know what it is about, and I also remember reading an interview where Hansi cryptically referred to a possible reading of the lyrics as describing "the history of attitudes towards women". And still there are some pretty ambiguous bits. Who ends up "Under the Ice" and free of gods, Cassandra or Agamemnon or both? Same for "I'm afraid to say but you don't play a part", is it something Clytemnestra says to one of them? Or a more detached view of men on women/women on men? Though perhaps part of the allure of the song is its ambiguity and obliqueness.
