Editorial Reviews

One of the leaders of American melodic metal returns with the re-release of their triumphant full length Ghost Opera , with an album-worth of additional live songs! After Kamelot hit their stride with their previous release, The Black Halo , fans responded enormously to the modern melodic metal masterpiece that is Ghost Opera . In addition to the unreleased tracks, the re-release includes a new cover by Mattias Noren, video footage, a booklet including Nocturnal Models for center spread, and an embossed collector s slipcover. Kamelot has become a true mark of quality and the re-release of Ghost Opera will impressively continue this grand tradition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Opera: Second Coming Is Incredible April 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant is the best word that comes to mind as I listen to the incredible second disc of Kamelot's Ghost Opera: the Second Coming. The mix of new Ghost Opera (what--no Rule the World) with the Black Halo Live CD is incredible. This band deserves much more exposure.

They sound so powerful live and with such clarity and depth.

They have grown to be my favorite band.

My CD came today as I ordered it three weeks ago from Amazon.

The studio songs of include Seasons' End (also available on The Myth and Legend of Kamelot), Pendulous Fall (found on the first edition of Ghost Opera and The Myth and Legend of Kamelot), Epilogue (also available on the Myth and Legend of Kamelot), and the Rule The World (remix) are the typical fair from Kamelot.

The Live portion of the second CD includes: Solitaire; Ghost Opera; The Human Stain (is this not the greatest Kamelot song or what???); Mourning Star; When The Lights Are Down; Abandoned (awesome--especially live); The Haunting (With Simone Simon--Love her); Momento Mori; Epilogue (as good as this song is in the studio--it is brilliant live and bridges the gap between the Black Halo and Ghost Opera material); and March of Mephisto.

Kamelot continues to find ways to reinvent themselves.

After playing Disc #2, I was overwhelmed.

The first disco includes all of Ghost Opera (a staple in the car and on the IPOD) and adds a few videos: Momento Mori (Live) and The Human Stain. The Ghost Opera video is on the first edition of Ghost Opera and the Rule The World Video is on the Kamelot Website or YouTube--whichever is your pleasure.

Buy the reissue CD of the Ghost Opera: The Second Coming and enjoy the bonus CD as Kamelot's gift to you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review is for the CD set only, not for the music April 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Ok, I'm not sure why Kamelot decided to re-release this album. I think disk 2 of this set alone would have made for a good release but I don't think packaging it with Ghost Opera was necessary. On that note, let's start with disk 2 (Live from Belgrade). Good song selection but its definetly missing a few. I went to the Ghost Opera tour and the song selection they had there was awesome, I just hope they had included a lot more songs here (at least more songs that were not included in the Cold Winter's Night Live CD). It also includes 3 new studio songs. Pendulous Fall is about the only one that stands out. Rule the World - Remix is HORRIBLE!! WHY KAMELOT??? Why did you choose to really destroy this song? Only if you like pop music will you like this song (I hope this is not the future of Kamelot).

Now, if you're a fan of Kamelot and don't have the first Ghost Opera edition album then definetly get this one. Disk 1 itself is definetly a 5 Star album, about as good as Kamelot gets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent concert piece! October 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the best concert album I've ever listened to - I have never seen Kamelot live but they sound BETTER live than on a CD (see their videos on youtube). Before I listened to this album, I thought Epica (album) was great. But you listen to Ghost Opera and you notice that Kamelot's music grows progressively more mature and complex and I believe they haven't reached their zenith yet - not even on Poetry for the Poisoned. While Epica sounded like a concept album, Ghost Opera is a 'whole' made up of single pieces that sound great on their own. Abandoned, Haunted, Ghost Opera, you name it - every one of them is a piece you'll start humming after just the second listen! It's a must have for anyone who wants good music in their headphones. Simply put - excellent and beautiful music (oh and did I mentioned that Simone from Epica (band) lends her vocals here too?)!

5.0 out of 5 stars magical June 29, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Roy khan is one of my favorite voices of any kind of music, and is almost ironic he is in a metal band.
the first disc of Ghost opera is short off of perfect, amazing songs. i am not 100% in love with this album, i felt like something was a tiny bit off or missing, but i like it enough to give 5 stars.
though i much prefer the conceptual albums Epica and The Black Halo, this is a fine original album.
this album seems more down-to-earth, and i kind of feel it was a nice break from fantasy, but i enjoyed their older albums because of the fantasy themes, but this one just proves they don't have to talk about medieval middle east in every album, though by judging the video for Rule the world, i think the idea is still implied to some degree.

for new listeners of Kamelot who don't understand what my reference is pertaining to, in a lot of older albums they have used a lot of arabic themes and various concept songs based around the deserts and sort of that sort of feel.

as for this album, it is a good start for listeners, but it might throw you off of their old stuff, which is debatably more metal-ish than this album is. also to people who don't like corny fantasy themes, older albums would obviously be undesired, but at least there is this album for those "real world" people.

as for the second disc, i enjoyed the bonus songs, they are gentle and cute and such, i'm not super into them, but they are nice.

as for the live stuff, i am somewhat disappointed that the guitar solo is taken out of The Haunting, and the keyboard/synth solo is taken out of March of Mephisto.
i do not understand why they decided to do that, but one day i plan to meet and greet and ask about that.

as for the remix of Rule the world, i don't really care for it, i don't like it when people remix songs in general.

either way, this is a high quality album that should be bought, not pirated.
