Blind Guardian - Forgotten Tales (1996) Retail CD
I never knew this was an acoustic album until I bought it. I listened to the first track in the shop, which made me laugh, so I continued to purchase the album (being a big fan of Blind Guardian). The first track (Mr Sandman) is a take of the classic children's song. It starts in a very irritating high pitched tone,which resembles some gawdy sea-side band affair, then progresses into a thrash metal song with a riding guitar solo and thumping drums. Genius. The same is done with track 2- "Surfin' USA", the Beach Boys awful classic. A few more covers are on this album, but the golden track ismore… a serious one- "Lord Of The Rings". It is an acoustic version of one of Blind Guardian's previous songs. This is my favourite song of all time, and feautres a small orchestra and choir. It is a song, which summarises the story of the Lord Of The Rings saga.It is a truly breathtaking song, with section after section of pure musical bliss. I particularly like the bridge, in which the choir sing the word "Mordor" in turn. Puely briliant.The last two tracks on the album are not really worth listening to.Another golden track is "Mordred's Song", which, again, is an acoustic version of one of Blind Guardian's own songs. It feautres a lot of strings, voices and a piano, although it sounds rather baroque in style.Rather than being a cheap cash-in, this album proves to be a flawed piece of brilliance. I would not use it as party music myself, but it has some wonderful moments to enjoy by yourself, or with a friend.An essential purchase for all hardcore Blind Guardian fans!
