Review

A classic record and one of the most beloved of the genre. Except for two rather average tracks ("Crusader", "No more lonely nights") the rest of the album leaves you standing with open mouth! Heavy and epic, melodic and progressive, all at the same time so that no one will be left unsatisfied. I really don't know which song is the best! The epic "Horsemen of the Apocalypse" or the title track? "Dolphin ride" is a wonderful instrumental that leads to the final "Ready to fly" with its excellent melodic clear solos - a great track all the way. I think i said enough. Don't miss it.
