If I were asked to name 3 best albums of Power Metal ever, my choice would be:

1. Blind Guardian 'Nightfall in Middle-Earth' (1998)

2. Gamma Ray 'Land of the Free' (1995)

3. Helloween 'Keeper of the 7 keys. Part 2' (1988)

'Nighfall in Middle-Earth' is Magnum Opus of Blind Guardian and an example that Power Metal does not necessarily mean 'Kindergarten Metal' which unfortunately can not be said about most of the bands playing mmusic in this style nowadays.

It will definetely take some time before you start to love this album. My first impression when I got it, was 'What a crap'. And now for me this album is Top 1.
