Blind Guardian’s “Tokyo Tales” features live performances of songs from their first 4 CDs up to “Somewhere Far Beyond” and perhaps the best selections to showcase the Blind Guardian live shows as well. I’ve never owned the original 1993 version, but the remastered version sounds pretty good – loud, dynamic, and full. “Tokyo Tales” starts off with the opener from “Follow The Blind” then leads in to the speedy opener “Banish From Sanctuary.” Is it just me or does the crowd sing extremely loudly…do they know all the lyrics? I kinda like this because you get the feel of a live show from Blind Guardian. “Valhalla” and “Majesty” are highlights as well with the crowd singing loudly and proudly and it makes you want to sing as well! All I have to say is that if you love Blind Guardian, get their live album “Tokyo Tales” as your power metal collection is not complete without this.
