4.0 excellentLucman | February 15th 19

February has been insane with these releases. Power metal doesn't get much better than this.

Still keeping the same formula as Ghostlights, Avantasia brings more creative thinking and heavy sounds to moonglow. With every song there is something marvelous.

5.0 classicWhiskers | February 13th 19

Beautiful album so far. Ghosts in the Moon is
particularly a work of art with some of the
most beautifully combined musical elements
especially in the last minute. Tobias voice
sounds like its coming from a much more
emotional place throughout the album as does
his musical writing.

Maybe to early to say but potentially
Avantasia's most immersive album so far.

4.5 superbThomas Soto | December 20th 18

If The Raven Child is anything to go by, then this is going to be one of 2019 best releases.

8.4/10... The first half, is beautiful.

4.5 superbGoldenGuy444 | February 17th 19

After a few listens, the album doesn't hold up to the consistent highs of Ghostlights, but the album is still solid as hell. the rash "Book of Shallows", the rBombastic "Ghost in the Moon", the monstrous "The Raven Child", and the catchy underdog "Lavender" are the best tracks here. Only major gripes is how the end of the album destroys the pacing, with the wicked "Requiem for a Dream" concluded with the confusingly placed cover, "Maniac" finishing off the album. It feels unfinished almost, but as typical with Avantasia this is only the first chapter of a greater saga. Edit: I swear, Tobi needs to stop doing this to me. Album gets better with every listen.

4.0 excellentElevon | February 16th 19

Fills the void of compelling, relatively-heavy power metal that was left by the departure of Jorn from Masterplan. Excellent album.

4.0 excellentXenorazr CONTRIBUTOR | February 16th 19

Moonglow is more or less a mirror-shone Ghostlights, boasting superb production, amazing performances and a few of Avantasia's most resonating tracks to date. However, it does live in its predecessor's shadow, and while the second half loses touch and botches the pacing up, Moonglow stands as a stellar piece of work that is guaranteed to satisfy all but the most critical of rock/metal opera fans.

4.0 excellentMitch | February 16th 19

Every song with Jorn slays, the rest of the record is a little hit or miss for me though.

Bump

4.0 excellentNazzadan | February 15th 19

Jammed twice in a row, definitely a continuation of the Ghostlights sound in a good way. I'm just not sure if it reaches the same peaks as the last record, even with Hansi finally showing up. Will need future listens to decide.

When Tobias sings, my body moves.
