It's been a long time that we didn't have a real great album from the Gamma Ray team. "Majestic" was not a bad album but it was a bit disappointing for me, not really original and just too generic to become a classic. I can tell you that it will be different this time because this "Land Of The Free II" is a great album and I'm happy to see that Kai, Henjo, Dirk and Daniel had a good reaction after the previous album. In my opinion, Gamma Ray is back in business for real and this album will become one of their classics!

Rating: 9 I've been listening to this one lately, totally forgot how good this was! In the last years I've been thinking this album was a disappointment and merely a "good" album. Boy, was I "wrong". This is an awesome album full of glorious melodies, superfast drumming and Maiden/Priest-inspired riffing. Kai himself is in very fine form vocally too, sometimes I could have sworn that Halford took a trip into the studio to lay down some spine chilling high-notes here and there!
