Helloween is one of the biggest bands within the power metal genrè... They've been going on like 15 years now, and they manage to produce just a good album after another.

Better Than Raw is no exeption! At first when I heard it, I didn't like it too much, I thought there were too many weak songs, but after a few listens I find it awesome! I enjoy every song on this album, especially highlights like "Falling Higher", "Revelation" (which might be their best songs of all times), "A Handful of Pain" and "Midnight Sun".

You should really get this album, regardless if you are a Helloween fan or not... another interesting thing are the lyrics for Lavdate Dominvm. Try and translate them to english!
