5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album July 7, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is an amazing album from start to finish. OK so the lyrics are a bit cheesy but the music makes up for that, CarlJohan Grimmark is an amazing musician, he plays guitar, keyboards and bass on this album and also programs the drums which I'm not shure are real or not but they still sound great all the same.
I just wonder if he is influenced by Yngwie at all??? .... There is possibly a small chance he might be . All the same he a great guitarist and does a good job even thought he does sound a bit too much like his idol.
The vocals are not the best in the world but they still do a good job.
I can't get enough of 'No More Shadows from the Past', what a song that is!!!! 'The Awakening' is also a favorite of mine on this album. All of the other songs sound good too there isn't really a weak song on here.
This is a great album overall and I ant wait to check out more of their stuff.
Rock on NARNIA!!

4.0 out of 5 stars C.S. Lewis' "Narnia" and this one have the same source October 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
In response to the well-meaning writer who said that this "Narnia" has no relation to C.S. Lewis "Chronicles of Narnia", I must disagree. C.S. Lewis' Christian faith inspired him to write the Narnia Chronicles, which are filled with parallels that come directly from Biblical stories and Christian doctrine. Literature with such parallels is called Allegory. If one is not familiar with the Bible and doctrine itself, it's easy to see how the writer would only view Narnia as a mere fantasy story. Narnia's message and music, even when it does not include direct references to the Narnia books (Narnia's other very good albums like Desert Land include very clear references to the books, like "Witch and the Lion"), is inspired by the same source that inspired Lewis- faith in Jesus Christ and the Judeo/Christian message set forth in the Bible from beginning to end . Both draw on the same ultimate source. There are many books and biographies relating to C.S. Lewis and the Narnia series that point out the biblical parallels for those who are curious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent traditional/power metal! February 23, 2012
By sharky
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Awakening is the first album I listed to by Narnia and I was pretty impressed. If you listen to metal or hard rock mainly for the guitar playing, like I do, you should like this album. There are only 8 tracks here but none are bad in my opinion. Some songs are heavier than others but they all provide some good listening variety. There is one track that is more speedy in rhythm but most of the music is of a mid-tempo speed for metal. That is my favorite type of metal. If you are looking for neck-breaking speed, you won't find it hear (except for the first song) but you will find yourself bobbing your head at a casual pace, if you want to call it that, on several songs. This was released in 1998 but you would think it was 1988 if you didn't know better (and that is a GOOD thing in my opinion). This is by no means one of my all-time favorite albums but is definitely something I enjoy popping in now and then and overall is an excellent album. My favorite tracks are Time of Changes and Touch From You.

5.0 out of 5 stars WAKE UP ! July 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is the terrific debut album of Swedish neoclassical metal heroes Narnia.
The band consisting of only guitar hero Calle Grimmark and singer Christian Liljegren, really shows what melodic metal is all about.
Calle Grimmarks guitar style is wery much compared with Yngwie Malmsteens (another Swedish guitar hero).
His fast accurate technique fits like a glove with the melodic music that signifies the whole album.

And as every Metal Head Swede out there would say: Rocka Gärnet !!!

Track listing:

1.Break the chains
2.No more shadows of the past
3.The return of Aslan
4.Heavenly love
5. Time of changes
6.The awakening
7.Touch from you
8. Sign of the times (in Sweden).

DONT MISS THIS ALBUM. IF YOU LIKE HALLOWEEN, HAMMERFALL, GAMMA RAY, STRATOVARIUS AND MANOWAR, THEN THIS IS THE ALBUM FOR YOU.

ROCK ON !!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Metal CD September 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I pefer not to label anything as Christian music, I just take it as music. This cd is a great listen, the vocals and production stand out. I see this band somewhere between Stratovarius and Ten, leaning toward Stratovarius. They are very melodic and very well paced.

4.0 out of 5 stars According to Lewis...Aslan IS Christ February 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
There is a spirit behind the creation of this CD, as well as behind the original book series upon which it is based. For those who doubt, please read the following Times story:

[...]

"An unpublished letter from the novelist C S Lewis has provided conclusive proof of the Christian message in his Narnia children's books.

"In the letter, sent to a child fan in 1961, Lewis writes: "The whole Narnian story is about Christ." It has been found by Walter Hooper, literary adviser to the Lewis estate.

"Supposing there really was a world like Narnia . . . and supposing Christ wanted to go into that world and save it (as He did ours) what might have happened?" he wrote. "The stories are my answer. Since Narnia is a world of talking beasts, I thought he would become a talking beast there as he became a man here. I pictured him becoming a lion there because a) the lion is supposed to be the king of beasts; b) Christ is called `the lion of Judah' in the Bible."

The Chronicles of Narnia are a Christian work of literature, written by a Christian (CS Lewis), based upon the Bible. A Christian Metal Band and Narnia have a lot in common. Read more
