Blind Guardian Ranked

I've omitted Legacy Of The Dark Lands because, while I like it, it is not a conventional Blind Guardian studio album and does not feel relevant to this ranking. Additionally, while Beyond The Red Mirror is handily my least favorite BG album, it still hovers around a 7 or an 8, so the stratification is not that immense. All of these albums are at least "good," and most of them are masterpieces.

1.Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth
2.Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
3.Blind Guardian - A Twist In The Myth
4.Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond
5.Blind Guardian - At The Edge Of Time

Blind Guardian Albums Ranked

My personal preference of legendary albums by a legendary band. Blind Guardian is a band that in my opinion does not have a single bad album . The 90s were a creative high for Blind Guardian . This run continued into the new millennium with "A Night At The Opera" being a creative capstone on their gloried career.

1.Blind Guardian - A Night At The Opera
2.Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth
3.Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
4.Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond
5.Blind Guardian - A Twist In The Myth

Blind Guardian Albums Ranked From Best To Worst

Another list of another great band. Blind Guardian wasn't among my favourites in my teens even if I liked plenty of their songs, in later years I however have started to appreciate them much more.

So yeah, here's the list with some top picks. I have not included the orchestra album as I really don't know how to rate it compared to their other albums. Maybe i'll add it in the future.

1.Blind Guardian - A Night At The Opera
2.Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond
3.Blind Guardian - Battalions Of Fear
4.Blind Guardian - Tales From The Twilight World
5.Blind Guardian - A Twist In The Myth

Empowering Albums For Powerless Losers

This is a list of all the power metal albums I have listened to that are worth remembering. Like my other genre lists, this is not meant to be a definitive guide to power metal or a binding judgment on what power metal is or is not. The list exists purely for my own organizational purposes and may contain bands or albums that are not strictly True Knights of the Eternal Thundersword.

The first cluster includes my favorite albums in the genre (and a significant number of my all-time favorites); beyond that, they are listed by rating from 9/10 down to 6/10 and alphabetically within each bracket.

Last updated November 27, 2021.

1.Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth
2.Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
3.Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond
4.Jag Panzer - Thane To The Throne
5.X Japan - Art Of Life
