|On this ominous album Yngwie reaches his full potential as a performer of his songs. A work of art.

|Malmsteen offers superb Wagnerian and majestic metal songs, along with fine musicians as Soto,Johanson bros and Jacob.

|Yngwie is one of the names that put Swedish rock on the map besides Europe. A true masterpiece. No other guitarist can touch his work.

|Unreachable ..The best Yngwie album...His playing is superb and Soto stands as one of the best metal voices

|I don't understand? How come Malmsteen has a page here and Joe Satriani and Steve Vai do not? Malmsteen may be fast, but all around I think that Satriani is skies above Yngwie! On my list of guitar players Malmsteen wouldn't even be on there. I know that some of you might think I am crazy, but the truth is I don't like his style. The bottom line here is, give Satriani & Vai a page on this site.

|I think this is the best Malmsteen album, If you hear this album you'll know why Jeff Scott Soto is one of the best Rock singers ever. Jeff Rules!!!!

|still with alcatrazz style, but with more yngwie

|Uno de sus mejores álbumes. Sin duda su primera etapa es la mejor. Soto está increible en este disco al igual que que Yngwie tocando esos solos de guitarra que para nada se hacen aburridos como los que ahora hace.

|Motley, you are of course welcome to your opinions, no reason ta kill ya for that. IMHO it's kinda like comparing apples to oranges (or in your case perhaps smørrebrød to pickled herring... ). I've always been a fan of both VH & YM, depends on the mood I'm in. Sadly I have to agree with the fact that YM's a bit repetitive with his solos, but I still like him anyway. This is my second favorite by him, my first being Trilogy.

|el mejor de malmsteem con mucha diferencia, despues perdio la frescura que caracteriza este album , impresionante i'll see the light, i'm a viking, y don't let it end. JEFF SCOTT SOTO es el mejor vocalista que ha estado en malmsteem .

|the great f*ckin' song
|From: Big Papa K

|This album starts off great with "I'll See The Light Tonight", but slows down after this as Malmsteen runs into a patter that affects most of his albums, a strong start and the rest of the album is very inconsistent. 6/10
||Date: September 18, 2004 at 23:46|
|Just saw the video for "I'll See The Light, Tonight"...is that really JSS in the video cause it sure doesn't look like him or has his stage presence? Anybody know for sure?
||Date: October 2, 2004 at 8:25|
|This is a good album...but not its best...I think that malmsteen got better with the years...Albums like SEVENTH SIGN MAGNUS OPUS and FACING THE ANIMAL..Prove it...I don't think that jeff was the best singer...I'd prefer Mats Levens or Mike vescera....But that's my opinion..It doesn't mean i'm the right one
||Date: November 30, 2004 at 18:25|
|This man has perfected the art of technical guitar, without interference. Most excellent album.
||Date: December 23, 2004 at 13:20|
|More tasty noodlin in here have a can of Chef-boy-rd! Full of flavor and tone...a Guitar Players Buffet....grab a plate,sit a spell, y'all come bach hear!!9/10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

|Same story as the debut. I understand why musicians like and appreciate this kind of stuff, but for the kids like me who like to hear a good song, this just escapes me. Once agan, a whole album passes and not a thing sticks in my mind.

|Tras un pimer trabajo en el que sólo pudimos disfrutar de él en dos temas, Jeff Scott Soto CANTA (Joder como canta) en este disco mostrando su nivel excelente. Impresionante trabajo del genio de las seis cuerdas sueco, con mi cantante favorito, en un DISCAZO que hay que tener, con himnos como “I’ll see the light, I’m a Viking...” Uno de los mejores trabajos de Yngwie un “MUST HAVE” para todos los fans del metal. No temais, todavía no se había convertido en Yngwie “Plastaing”.

|HUGE CD 100/100 POWERFUL SWEDISH NEO CLASSIC MELODIC METAL at his best! excellent!!!

|This second album has vocals on the majority of songs (unlike his first one which is a great guitar instrumental cd with only 2 songs that h ave vocals). Jeff Scott Soto of course sounds good and the songs are great. Malmsteen shreds it up like his usual. The Johansson brothers are great as well. There are plenty of melodies and catchy songs on here that hit hard. It's fine Melodic Metal as categorized above. The 85/100 seems about right but I'll give 88/100 since it's Yngwie!

|This one along with Odyssey are the best releases of the swedish guitar wizard!
||Date: October 21, 2009 at 6:16|
|Geoff if you don't hear great songs on this album then you definitely have to get your ears chcked! Just listen to Don't let it end or I am a viking. My guess is you don't like metal.
