4.0 excellentSomethingSimilar | December 24th 09

When I first downloaded this album, I listened to This Will Never End. The fantastic pace and energy of this track sets the scene for, well, the rest of the album.
A Twist in the Myth is a very consistent power metal sound, and there's not one track that will let you down - and the lyrics (at least, at first listen) are remarkably free from cheese for the pidgeon hole I had put Blind Guardian in before I bought an album.
Well worth the listen.

4.5 superbShadows | September 5th 06

If any metal band can be called the single most reliable, consistent, creative, and all-around best band ever, Blind Guardian is it. Their progressive experimentation on each album is what keeps their 22 year reign exciting through every move they make. After doing the speed metal, power metal, symphonic metal, and throwing in progressive elements here and there, A Twist in the Myth comes along as a sort of musical blend of everything, including Blind Guardian's mastery of symphonic and epic arrangements. A Twist in the Myth is also arguably the most hard-edged Blind Guardian album yet, featuring powerfully heavy songs such as Another Stranger Me and The Edge, both boasting sing-along metal choruses and epic climaxes topped with the much-needed Andre Olbrich guitar solos.
