Editors’ Notes Although solidly and distinguishably a hearty power-metal band, Helloween's sound benefits from its expansiveness. The strangely detuned, medieval-sounding intro to “Walls of Jericho/Ride the Sky” is magnificently destabilizing, while “Mr. Ego (Take Me Down)” sounds strikingly Zeppelin-meets-ELO—in the best possible way. These German pioneers have excavated metal from the farthest reaches of music.
