first of all, Blind Guardian does really bad cover songs. so just skip all of those. You want to get this album for the wonderful variations of Blind Guardian originals. And for that, EVERYONE NEEDS THIS ALBUM. "Lord of the Rings", acoustic/orchestral version, is the greatest single nugget of song perfection ever. incredible vocals, a chorus that will break your soul into pieces, and masterful arrangements (some of the instruments are out-of-tune -- i think it was self-produced, but either way it add HUGE character to the sound). oh whatever, you don't even have to get this album -- just hear this disc's version of "Lord of the Rings" at all costs! sell your soul if you have to. i will buy it. I HAVE NEVER HEARD A BETTER SONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! who would have thought a song about magic rings, dwarves, elves, and evil dark lords would be the greatest thing ever.
