So there's general agreement on Walls of Jericho being the best album of the early stuff, let's move on to the post-Kiske period. I admit I'm not familiar with absolutely everything they released in the last years and haven't heard a note from the last one yet, but I enjoy Master of the Rings, TTotO and especially Better Than Raw a lot. How can one possibly dislike these lyrics? http://heavylatin.blogspot.it/2008/04/helloween-laudate-dominum.html

Props to Weikath for being a practicing Catholic as well as a great songwriter. Anyway, some great tunes on that album, Falling Higher, I Can, Hey Lord and at least a couple more.

The Dark Ride. Better Than Raw is better quality-wise, but what I really enjoy about TDR is the style, nothing sounds similar imo. Push, Time, A Handful of Pain are also great, I think this album is the best combination of single-hit songwriting without making 'em sound flat in a radio friendly way.

Tough call between Oath and Better Than Raw. They were still a very organic band for these albums, whereas the last 3-4 are total brickwall/autotune exercises. Some cool songwriting of course but missing the warmth of the mid 90s stuff.

It's the gap Uli left, you were totally right. He was one of their basic composers during that era. I enjoy more the second half of TDR for the same reason, it is its most organic part, sort of.

Masterplan weren't bad at all by the way, but it's been seriously too long since I listened to their stuff. I remember I really enjoyed Black In The Burn, the 10 minute track from their second album.
