Remastered re-release of the fifth full-length studio album by legendary German Epic Power Metal band.
The atmosphere of this album is darker in comparison to their earlier works, such as "Battalions Of Fear", which had a relatively light tone.
"Imaginations From The Other Side" reiterates on the quasi-conceptual character of the two previous studio releases and, perhaps, ups the ante somewhat: the titular opening piece abstracts from particular imaginative stories and instead tells a story about imagination itself, referencing the childhood escapist-fantasies of The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland and Chronicles of Narnia. The album proceeds to tell the story of a child’s escape through a mirror to an Arthurian world of swords, dragons and crusades before being brought back to reality. This story is picked up again twenty years later on the "Beyond The Red Mirror" album, which tells the story of how the ‘other side’ has fallen into darkness, and the quest to find a way back.
"Imaginations From The Other Side" is the last album to feature Hansi Kürsch on bass, who would thenceforth give himself over entirely to vocal and lyric-writing duties.
This album also marks the first, since "Battalions Of Fear", in which Kai Hansen (Helloween, Gamma Ray) did not guest on vocals or guitar. It was also their first album to spawn Singles, "A Past and Future Secret" and "Bright Eyes".
In 2005, "Imaginations From The Other Side" was ranked number 373 in Rock Hard Magazine's book of "The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time". Loudwire named the album at second in their list "Top 25 Power Metal Albums of All Time" and Metal Hammer ranked it at third in a similar list.
No doubts, one of the best Blind Guardain albums and one of the best Heavy Metal album of all the times!
Re-edition features three bonus tracks.
