Metal Hammer

From its magnificent and surreal Eliran Kantor artwork to the undeniable monstrousness of the guitar tones, Helloween exudes superiority and imperious power, and it’s ridiculously exciting.

Classic Rock

It's taken them ages, but Helloween have delivered another classic.

Metal Injection

Even at 65 minutes, the album doesn’t drag at all. The crystal clear production, musical variety, and lack of filler keep the momentum going throughout.

Hello Ween, I love Quebec. Glad to see that y'all got back together!
Not really huge on power metal, but I do enjoy the decently heavy technicality, and fair amount of guitar technicality. This doesn’t win me over as much as their past discography, which had more of a bite, in my opinion, but this record is pretty okay power metal nonetheless.
Classic band returns with a very fun album. I had a wonderful time explaining the lyrical themes and significance to a beautiful blond hooker last night. It didn't seem like she understood what I was talking about, but she's probably stupid so who cares. Anyways, very cool!
It's got decent instrumental ideas here and there, but there's no excuse for how bad some of the songwriting is on here. These guys are too old and established in the metal community to have songs that sound like 80's leftovers. Again, I'm glad that they're still on par instrumentally, but this album was far away from a perfect comeback.
Power metal. The only power this shit has is making me want to puke. Ooh play guitar fast ooh wow.
