After a couple of vain attempts (Pink Bubbles Go Ape and Chameleon) and the forced departure of lead singer Michael Kiske, Helloween came back to life with "Master Of The Rings", and they did it in a good way. Andi Deris is a solid replacement for Michael Kiske and adds a fresh twist to the German combo. On the other hand, virtuoso drummer Uli Kusch (ex Gamma Ray and Ingo's replacement) adds the fury and the speed.

Well I certainly didn't know that Andy Deris had been with Helloween as far back as the release of this album, but I guess that's what happens when you've only listened to a select few albums from the band over and over again. I've since given "Master of the Rings" a few listens and come to this conclusion: It's the start of a steady ascent into relevancy. There's a lot of quirky stuff here, Helloween's usual brand of power metal but somehow bouncier (if such a word exists). I guess you could say the same about Helloween's 80s material to a certain extent. The album to me is generally very solid stuff, not quite perfect (some songs are too run-of-the-mill for my liking, particularly "Sole Survivor" and "Secret Alibi", but then there's the excellent "Why" and "Perfect Gentleman" which soundly remind me of how well-written Helloween songs have been known to be.
