Instead, they've insisted on messing with me in another way by making a frustratingly inconsistent album that teeters between something close rociet their old sound a some horribly poppish or just plain moronic trash.
On this album, Edguy goes back from their power metal hymns and almost does a completely hard rock album.
This track has probably the best guitar riffing in it, but falls a tiny bit short in the soloing department. The album finishes off with "Fucking With Fire Hair Force One " a song which ends the album almost as powerfully as it started.
In Europe, the limited first edition was released as a digibook, featuring a photographic history of the group with formerly unreleased pictures from their early days and the bonus live track: Rocket Ride features a galloping guitar and bass rythm thats infectious right form the first listen, and a chorus that is catchy as sin, in true Edguy fashion.
