90's Music Challenge. 7 songs in 7 days that define the 1990's for me. Day 5.
With their previous album "Insanity & Genius" a slight disappointment, I remember coming home from Utopia with this album, "Land of the Free" as part of my purchases. The first thing I noticed was that Kai Hansen had taken over the vocals as well as the guitar, reviving memories of the first Helloween album.
The first track of the album was a lengthy one, over 8 and a half minutes. It set the scene for the story of this concept album, and it also marked the beginning of the halcyon period for this brilliant band.
Song #5 is "Rebellion in Dreamland" by Gamma Ray.
