Declaration Day is an awesome song. Otherwise, nothing's really blown me away. The lyrics sometimes seem to interfere with the music, which is something that Iron Maiden started running into with their musical history lessons (Alexander the Great, anyone?). To paraphrase Chuck D., you can teach the seminar, but you still have to rock the boulevard.
Unless you're American, love the States, or aren't bothered by the extreme patriotism, I wouldn't recommend this album. And now I'm in a quandry - this is the only Iced Earth I've ever heard. Would I like Iced Earth if I tried another album, or are the themes of the album just covering up the fact that I don't really like Iced Earth?
The best part of this album (on Disc two) and on disc one of the one disc version is the Gettysburg Trillogy. In three songs (totalling about a half hour) they sing and play the whole battle of Gettysburg, the most infamous battle of the Civil War. One of the most epic and just plain awesome conceptual tracks I have ever heard. Really puts me in the mood to watch some Cold Moutain.
Anyways, Tim "Ripper" Owens really kicks butt on this disc. I wish he would hang around for another. I would love a concept album by Iced Earth on the who civil war. That would be sweet!

There is no need to review the rest of this CD, which is very good. The Gettysburg trilogy is worth the price of admission alone. Read morePublished on July 6 2004 by David M

Tim Owens is really a genius. He is the singer for a Judas priest cover band. JP hear about him and hire him as their new singer after Rob Halford leaves. Read morePublished on July 4 2004 by Offensive Donkey
