5.0 out of 5 stars SABBAT:TRULY UNIQUE UK THRASH!!! AMAZING!!! June 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Since there are already a couple of fine reviews of SABBAT-"Dreamweaver", I'm going to keep this short. It is truly the GREATEST travesty in the metal world right now, that SABBAT-"Dreamweaver" is no longer in print. It is especially maddening when one considers all the GARBAGE that is IN print. So here's the deal. If you want a copy of this all-time thrash classic it's going to cost you too much. BUT IT IS WORTH IT!!! You will not regret it. Martin's vocals are arguably the most intense, unique, and rapid-fire in thrash history. The lyrics are epic but catchy and memorable. The guitar work is stellar, even surpassing the excellence of the first SABBAT album "A History of a Time To Come". The songs on "Dreamweaver" are fast and extremely tight(with two guitars instead of one like the first LP). The songs are among the most catchy and memorable in thrash history. After listening to the first two SABBAT albums(the third is without Martin and vastly inferior)one is left quite confused about exactly HOW a band this great could be known by so few. SABBAT is one of those bands that amazes people who've never heard them. Play them for a friend and I guarantee you they'll say "who IS THIS!!!!" And then they'll beg you for copy. So in conclusion, buy this album!!! Even if it costs you $100. If you are a TRUE metalhead you will qickly find yourself worshipping the true UK thrash gods...SABBAT!!! So get some good weed, sit back, crank it up, and enjoy one of the most under-rated metal bands ever!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring... incredible... beautiful... November 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
There are very few records that have the power to blow you away on the first listen and repeatedly on every single subsequent listen. (And I've listened to it many hundreds of times since its release.) Without fail. Without exception. I used to feel the same about ...And Justice For All. But, I have to accept, that whereas Metallica's classic does have its longeurs in amidst the brilliance, Sabbat's Dreamweaver: Reflections of our Yesterdays does not. [Erm... not sure why Amazon seems to have rechristened the disc 'Dreamweavers'. I'm sure they have their reasons!]

This is the consummate metal album. Unsurpassed. Ever. So there. All other concept albums (that I have come across, at any rate) should never have been conceived! Sabbat's masterpiece is flawless from start to finish. Sure, it helps that the original source material (Brian Bates's The Way of Wyrd) is so astounding. But the true genius lies in Martin Walkyier's exquisite lyrics - which even he has struggled in later works to equal - and the incredible vocals/musicianship/licks/riffs/solos/sonic sorcery on display. Unlike too much music out there, in Dreamweaver, every single note played counts. Yes, there are plenty of `widdly-widdly' guitar runs. Usually such indulgences can mar an otherwise fine song (Eddie Van Halen - what DID you create?!) But here... every single `widdle', every single cymbal crash, every single bass pluck, every single lyric is pertinent, perfect, essential.

The story of earnest early Christian missionary Wat Brand (who goes native in a big way during his mission to convert pagans in the south of England) and the telling of it is utterly engrossing. The characters encountered on the way are compelling, the action swift and breathless, the denouement totally satisfying and totally magical.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Metal Albums of all time September 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I was blown away when I first hear Dreamweaver back in 1989, I loved it so much I listened to it 3 times in a row non stop. Lyric wise and Martin's style in untouchable. This album changed the way I look at bands now, there were alot of bands at that time I thought I liked, but after hearing this I realized real talent or no talent. This is a must have if you like real metal.

By robotiq
Format:Audio CD
Sabbat were the essential UK thrash band, unique in their musical and lyrical approach and never constrained by stylistic clichés. Furious, multi-layered thrash built around dense, complex song structures and relentless metallic riffing. It is similar to prime Metallica, but darker and much more expressive. Martin Walkyier's vocals are intense and rasping, less screeching than on Sabbat's first album but fitting the music equally well.

The concept behind the album is that of a young Christian missionary's journey to convert the pagan inhabitants of England. This may sound awful on paper, but it is fascinating and beautifully told, genuinely poetic and extremely culturally aware. It is unfortunate that this genius album will only be unearthed and appreciated by a handful of serious old-school metalheads, because 'Dreamweaver' remains one of the best kept secrets in underground music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Criminally Overlooked Speed Metal Album July 10, 2008
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I bought this album when I was 12 years old, already schooled on Anthrax, Metallica, Voivod, and Slayer. I still love all of those bands, but this particular album by Sabbat will always have a special place in my heart. Dreamweaver was a mainstay in my walkman for a good 2-3 years. Finally having quality MP3's of it after all these years is a real treat, and I'm happy to say the songs have aged extremely well. The combo of blistering speed and infectious hooks (see 'The Clerical Conspiracy', 'The Best of Enemies', and 'Wildfire' for evidence) still rivals the best efforts of the genre's headliners. If you consider yourself a speed metal fan and somehow missed this one, I can't recommend it highly enough.
