Listened to Opera today at work. The whole thing feels like a grand finale.

Is it something that you really have to focus on the lyrics to appreciate?

Liked the proggy side of it. Kind of meh of the Maiden side.

Does that make sense?

You definitely don't have to focus on the lyrics. They're just throwaway power metal fodder. I think by that point Blind Guardian weren't so about the silly but charming lyrics of yore (past albums were absolutely about corny lyrics) and were more about the music. And do you mean proggy as in the long song at the end? "And Then There Was Silence" is fire, but I guess they can be proggy kinda throughout. The album has incredible pop sensibilities though so if you didn't appreciate that then I say you missed out and need to give it another listen. I'd take this over any Maiden album these days. It's legit one of the few power metal albums I'll still rep unreservedly after becoming bored with the genre as a whole.

I mean I don't know if you thought this was proggy or Maiden but it's one of the catchiest and prettiest metal songs every written so if you weren't about it then you need to hear it again.

There might be several Blind Guardian songs I'd come back to once in a while, but this is the only one I need to come back to every once in a while.

Bright Eyes

To me, this one track just encapsulates everything I like about their sound and avoids everything I dislike about their style.

Being reminded that this song exists pretty much forces me to play it 3 times in a row on head rattling volume right now. It's pure bliss.

That song has one of the ultimate choruses ever made by anybody in any genre. Blind Guardian have pop instincts to die for. If you spurn all power metal but that song then I'll at least shake your hand.

The verses and bridges are honestly just as catchy as the choruses. I've had this song stuck in my head countless times.
