Ahhhh Doro Pesch, a name that always brings me back to memories of a fevered pre-pubescent geek staring at pictures of the band Warlock. Ummmm I am not the geek…these are stories I have heard…I am WAY to trOO for drooling…ahhh whatever. All the drooling comments aside this woman has earned respect simply for her longevity as well as releasing some pretty good metal throughout her career. This new one falls into step along with pretty much the rest of her albums and this is the only complaint I really have of the album.

It is not that this is a bad album…far from it actually but it just seems to be something you had heard before. I know this is a stupid complaint since I know not every album an artist releases needs to be something new or moving into uncharted areas of creativity. Hell, bands like AC/DC have made a career of releasing pretty much the same album for the last twenty years and I still like them as well. I have always expected Doro to release an album that knocks me on my ass and although all of them have been pretty good none of them have ever had that effect on me. They have always left me feeling like I expected more. This album leaves me pretty much the same way as most of the others. First 3 or 4 songs are upbeat and then it slows way down and here is where the ambivalence starts to kick in. I can handle a couple of ballads on an album but this has 4 or 5 and that is just way too much for me. I really think this hurts the overall feel of the album.

Overall another album that has some pretty good songs here and there but overall kind of leaves you wanting a bit more. A little to slow in the middle that brings the overall feel to a screeching halt. This might be one that hardcore fans will have to get but for the majority I suggest listening before you throw down your money.
