And what a 5 star present it is... If I could give this 10000 stars I would, it is truly amazing. On this, The eve of Sir Christopher Lee's 92 birthday, he has released this new EP entitled Metal Knight. Where he puts his operatic and metal styles to such true classics as "I, Don Quixote" and "The Toreador March" along with modern classics such as "The Impossible Dream" and "My Way" I give it 5 stars ++!
Sir Christopher Lee has done it again!

I was astounded at Christopher Lee's performance of the first lines of Don Quixote before the opening of "I, Don Quixote" from Man of La Mancha. He is a strong as he ever was, and I am so excited to own this. I am going to purchase his first two metal albums as well. Through this album, Lee reminds me why I became a tech writing major: so I could be a lit major and still find a job after college. The album is full-bodied metal with an intellectual spin, something not everyone will enjoy. However, for those of us despairing of ever finding metal that tests the boundaries of literary criticism, coupled with musical analysis of eighteenth century romanticism, then this is the album for you. You can actually feel yourself using your English degree as you listen to it. I agree with Lee: Don Quixote, the Man of La Mancha, was the most metal character ever created.

Sir Christopher Lee is simply one of the greatest talents on the face of the planet. He was the greatest Dracula and one of the only redeeming parts of Star Wars Attack of the Clones (hey at least his acting was good even if the film was not). His musical albums are not only fun to listen to, but they have a certain dignity to them. Christopher Lee Rocks and fits the Metal Genre. He is to quote Rob Halford a "METAL GOD!"

Just when you think you can’t admire the legendary Sir Christopher Lee any more, he goes and celebrates his 92 birthday by releasing a Heavy Metal album: “Metal Knight”. Gotta love him! His booming voice is amazing, and the musicianship throughout is stellar – the musical equivalent of a fireworks display.

The epic “I – Don Quixote (short)” sets the tone for the rest of the album – a marriage of genres that seamlessly melts Metal, Classical, and “Man Of La Mancha” into the blacksmith’s forge, resulting in a razor-sharp shining sword to be held high in triumph. This is followed by a very heartfelt and courageous rendition of “The Impossible Dream”.

“The Toreador March (short)” is chock full of bravado. Lee’s Metal rendition of “My Way” probably has the late Frank Sinatra holding up the “Metal horns” hand gesture from the grave – Lee totally made this song his very own – an extreme adrenaline rush! The majestic “I – Don Quixote (Extended)” invites us into his imagination – there is a fantastic spoken-word intro about a Knight Errant who wants to right all of the world’s wrongs.

A theatrical diatribe serves as the intro to “The Impossible Dream (Extended)”, which has a more mellow start than the shorter version but gains in intensity until it hits epic proportions – breathtaking! The spectacular “The Toreador March (Extended)” is soaring musicianship ushering in a regal procession.

This album is timeless, and a welcome addition to any musical library. Lee certainly inspires countless generations to keep reaching for that unreachable star!
