Best Helloween Albums
Both keepers are equally good, but this one came to be more popular because it did complete the expectation of being the second part o finishing part of a great set of albums.
Both the original keeper albums and the legacy are great however this one has more tracks that are still played live than the others. The title track is epic much like Halloween is for part one but this album is more consistent.
Helloween's best work (even with Kiske) though I am more a fan with what Helloween is doing with Deris. I am a major fan of the original Melodic Power Metal Helloween was originally doing the Keeper records are still on top.
Eagle Fly Free, Dr. Stein, I Want Out- there's 3 of my top 5 songs right there. Great album, one of my favorites and the best one by Helloween.
Epic, not only the music is oustanding but also the whole concept of lyrics and stories are remarkable. Keepers albums have a little bit of everything a power metal abum should have.
Outstanding! Even the b-sides destroy other bands full length albums!
What can you say.The excitement those tracks bring to me personally is out of this world!
One of my favorite parts of the album is in the track halloween with the amazing melodic and powerful leads at 9:40 and on! For me only livin in hysteria by heaven's gate can look up to this album.Long live the album that set fire to the european power metal scene!
Last note, I recommend to pick the remaster edition and listen to the b-side victim of fate..."You will burn in Heeell"!
It's not only Helloweens best album, but also the best power metal album of all time. It's also the only Helloween album with consistency, not a single bad track. Also, songs like "I'm Alive", "Future World", "Twilight of the Gods", and of course "Halloween" are all in my top 10 Helloween songs. Amazing album, one of the best ever.
Keeper of the Seven Keys II and their other albums are also great, but A little time, Twilight of The Gods and Halloween
Are my favorite Helloween songs and they are all here. Along with Keeper part II, this album helped developing the power metal genre. Truly legendary.
Amazing! Forever And One is my favourite song ever! And Power! Wake Up The Mountain is amazing! Andi rules!
Truly the best. Tied with "Keeper, part 1" for the all time greatest effort from the band.
Unique. The only Helloween album I can listen from beginning to end.
I love this album. It is in my top 3 together with the Keys.
The greatest Helloween album if not the greates album of all time. Every song in this album deserves a 9/10 or more except phantoms of death.
14 awesome songs.
1. Walls of Jericho
2. Keepers 1 & 2
3. Pink Bubbles go Ape
4. Time of the Oath
5. The Dark Ride
7. Master of The Rings
8. Better than Raw
How many tears-ride the sky-metal is the law-metal invaders etc. PERIOD!
The songs speaks for it!
This is by fat their best album. Nothing touches the song 'Ride the Sky.'
Dark Ride for me was just the perfect storm. It's dark and brooding, yet somehow uplifting. Happiness smothered in melancholy. One of my favorite albums of all time, and the title track is without equal.
This album is different for its predecessors. It is quite dark and features the best vocals of Andi Deris. Also contains the title track which is epic fast and has a energy that would ashame the darkness
Mr. Torture was the first song I knew by this band and while I'm not at all a dark person their sound really interests me.
The real best album
Really good album, that's my opinion. My fovourite songs from "Better than raw" are: Push, Falling higher, Hey lord, Time and I can (which is my favourite song from this album) Really good piece of music
Very fast and powerful! It has so much energy, very good drumming and sooo many amazing solos. The first Helloween album I ever had on cassette and I love it so much!
It's fast, heavy, and well done. 'Nabataea' is a masterpiece, everything in this song is brilliant; 'Waiting For The Thunder' is great; 'Make Fire Catch the Fly' is fast and has clever lyrics; 'Church Breaks Down' is also very good; 'Straight Out Of Hell' is happy and nice to hear; the ballad 'Hold me in Your Arms' is one of their best ballads; the bonus track 'Another Shot of Life' could be a normal track; and 'Burning Sun' doesn't need to be commented, awesome song!
The best Helloween album in my opinion, every song is a tune.
Straight Out Of Hell, Waiting For The Thunder, Burning Sun, Far From The Stars, stand out as the best tracks, some of the best songs Helloween have done, absolute belters.
My favorite album. Truly my very first Helloween album to listen. Every track was great can't stop listening to it almost everyday. So good that I could sing it along.
Waiting for the Thunder is my favourite song from this album. A good album overall, though, of course.
The whole set of song's complement this album very well, each one has it's own unique identity. The King For A 1000 years is an epic masterpiece and it has nothing to envy to Halloween or Keeper Of The Seven Keys.
This album is actually really underrated, Andi Deris finally sorted his voice out.
Are you kidding me? This is one of there best albums! Is has lots of great song, such The game is on, Perfect gentleman, and so many more. You should listen to it again.
For me is better than Time of the Oath. in my humble opinion it must be in the top 5.
From Sole Survivor to Still We Go! Exceptional tracks all of'em!
Should be at least at four place...
This album is underrated and gets a bad rep because of the title but it doesn't change the fact that this is their most uplifting and positive album yet. It can't compete with the keeper but is deserving of number three with the incredible guitar and lyrics after the singer got vocal lessons from Rob Halford himself, there is not a bad song on this album and it will always be my number one. Helloween for life 11/
This is one of the most all times underrated albums ever. Sadly, because is such a piece of great music! And yes, it's Metal. But with something else. It's not the "typical" Helloween's power and speed metal, it is lighter and not so heavy, but still sounding like Helloween anyway, with some new elements and experimentation and less heavier.
I actually liked Chameleon. I think the reason that most Helloween fans don't is because it's not metal. However, I listen to more than just heavy metal (which isn't even my favorite music genre) so maybe that's why I like it.
My opinion may not be popular, but for me this the best album ever - not only from Helloween, but in general. It is said that fans did not like it. It is deep, emotional, ambitious... Perfect piece of art.
The songs are very inspired, sophisticated and with a lot of feeling. The artists sometimes have the right to explore with something different in their music.
I'd give this album maybe an 8/10. I prefer certain tracks as opposed to the whole thing.
One of their best albums for sure!
One of their best for sure!
Many good songs on this Album - Kids of the Century - the Chance- Nr One - Someone is crying...
Great album! Sounds better today than when it was released!
Actually the Music on it is good... The Production is bad...
Another very underrated album...
Love this album its different from the normal but I just love it
