Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Hate Heavy Rock Radio II: Executing the Classics if you must, but not just from a fanboy stance, I thought this was a very entertaining album. Jorn and his band delivered a great product. Of course, I would love to hear some new material from him, and again, I suspect that is coming sooner rather than later. I think cover/tribute albums are a way for an artist to release new music and gives them a chance to pay tribute to songs that influenced them as well as not having to put too much effort into writing a new album. Again, this may be a legit complaint to have, but cut the man some slack. Just be thankful he’s still out there making music and still sounds amazing.
Performing to a jam-packed, sold out venue, Tobias Sammet and his Avantasia Moonglow tour ensemble made this corner of London theirs for one very special night.
If you know Jorn, but somehow missed this one, or if you’re a fan of melodic metal, this is a must have.
To think of how amazing he was 17 years ago when I saw him for the first time, his talent and skill have only gotten better with time.
This album is perfect for those that loved all the tracks by the original artists, but also offers the opportunity to others to begin to love them as rock songs
I’ve rarely seen so much playfulness, funny and talented people together on one stage. Avantasia are still a household number when it comes to live performances.
One of the greatest rock singers of our time, JORN LANDE returns…
But I can reassure you: “The Great Divide” isn’t such a disaster like “Angels Of The Apocalypse” No, it’s even far away from being a disaster. It feels like Timo Tolkki saved his best songs for Allen/Lande and put all the crappy stuff on his Avalon project
When we started Masterplan with Jorn a lot of people had warned me to be careful saying that he was very difficult . That he was never happy or satisfied with things. I think that the only thing that he really was concentrated on was trading on a solo career called Jorn.
