The only comlaint you could have about buying this album is that it is relatively short. That shouldnt stop you from buying it! Inevitably this will be compared to Metallica’s S&M: but this is spit-and-polished metal and ballads that puts it to shame. The updated “rock you like a hurricane” is terrific, although Klaus Meine’s vocals (in my opinion) just werent _quite_ as beautiful as usual. This song opens strong orchestrally, and closes just as hard. “Moment of glory” is wonderful. The children’s choir is a nice touch, adding to the songs’ message of hope, and I particularly like the impish ending by the orchestra here and on “wind of change”. “send me an angel” features vocals split with Italian superstar Zucherro (you may have seen him on vocals during the Freddie Mercury Tribute concert). The song still sounds excellent here. “here in my heart” has to be one of the prettiest duets Ive heard. “big city nights” opens hard, and never stops. I much prefer this version, incl. guest vocals. This album sounds like the winning soundtrack to a movie. Buy it.
