Editorial Reviews

Their last release, The Dark Ride, was a much darker album that experimented with different styles and themes. Rabbit Don't Come Easy is a much more positive, vintage relrelease that harkens back to the sound and style Helloween pioneered in the 80's.

I think this is the one that'll change the minds of the Andi Deris haters out there. This is one solid album, the best Helloween have done in a long time. I know alot of people tuned out when Deris came into the picture, but I don't see why exactly. Sure he's not the singer Michael Kiske was(not many are), but he's suited for the sound of the band now. I mean, you're doomed if you compare him to Kiske-Deris does have some pretty big shoes to fill there. I've grown to like him myself. But this album rocks, let me tell you. Helloween have gone back to their "happy metal" style that we all love so much after giving us The Dark Ride. There's a tad bit of the Dark Ride left over for this album as well as Better Than Raw. Most of the songs here tend to go the route of the heavier songs on Better Than Raw like "Push." In fact, this album gets really heavy, moreso than I've come to expect from Helloween. Bits of it sound like something off of the newer Overkill albums! I was a little skeptical at first after hearing the guitar player(Roland)and drummer(Uli)had left-I thought the album wouldn't be that good. But this Sascha guy is quite good, and who doesn't like Mickey Dee? Roland always rubbed me the wrong way anyhow, I don't know about you folks. I guess it was subconscious-he replaced Kai Hansen and I held a grudge or something. Plus, he just didn't seem like Helloween was his kind of band-like he didn't really belong there. Anyhow, Roland or not, Uli or not, Kiske or not, everything falls into place perfectly here. Helloween should be proud.

First of all, I really do not understand the criticism that Helloween is taking for this album. If people are put off by the album title, they shouldn't be. Rabbit Don't Come Easy is NOT like the experimental Pink Bubbles or Chameleon albums (both of which I like anyway). Rabbit is solid German power metal, made by power metal's inventors and played infinately better than the legions of imitators. As you know by now, the Rabbit title just refers to phrase "like pulling a rabbit out of a hat".
Anyway, the songs, there really is not much of a dud here. Occasionally there are some funny phrases, and some weak lyrics, but nothing too distracting. The best songs are going to be the fast ones like Just A Little Sign, Listen to the Flies, Open Your Life, Sun 4 The World and Liar. The new guitarist Sascha Gertsner immediately makes his presence felt by cowriting some of the best tracks.
I liked the Roy Z sinister brand of Helloween found on The Dark Ride, but I also welcome the return of the more classic sounding Helloween. Dark Ride broke the band apart and I will miss Uli and Roland's writing and playing, but Roland's replacement does a great job on Rabbit. Lastly, unlike a few opinions, I think that Wieki's Nothing To Say is really a cool song. Catchy melody, funny lyrics and very different. The song features several tempo changes and a raegae section. Judas Priest did something like that on The Rage, so if Priest does it, you know its cool. If you like Helloween, you will like this.

Well, I first was a little bit skpetical after the Dark Ride. I was so impressed by the wonderful Better Than Raw and previous Time of the Oath. But actually this Rabbit don't Come Easy is not a return to the roots. It is really a great NEW album. I wanted to rate it 4.5 but it not possible. It is full of great surprises. The songs are very different, the influences come from dark heavy metal to popy music and the prod is so fine (but lack of bass guitar... masked by the huge drums). If you don't know Helloween and are looking for talented muscians it is the album to buy (and avoid the new Metallica. They are in their Dark Ride period these guys...)
If you like speed rock you'd better buy Better Than Raw. It has not so much details and diversity but really rocks!

Helloween's 10th studio album, 'Rabbit Don't Come Easy' (2003), is awesome on many different aspects. As if Metallica and Queensryche's old sound hadn't "Died Dead Enough" (in the words of Megadeth), Metallica and Queensryche dove even further into the trash barrel with 'St. Anger' and 'Tribe,' respectively. But 'Rabbit Don't Come Easy' is a true masterpiece, in spite of two new recruits to the band.

This is basically as it says on the front-a return to normalcy. Even though it doesn't sound or end up quite as good as their milestone 'Keeper of The Seven Keys, part 1 and 2' (1987, 1988), it still has the classic power metal sound with some new elements. There is some experimentation on this album, but not in such an extreme way as their 1993 disasterpiece, 'Chameleon'. There is actually a bit of clean reggae guitar on one track, and some sitar playing on two tracks.

The band looks like this: singer Andreas "Andi" Deris, though not as good as Kiske, still can hit those ear-piercing notes. The pair of "ol' faithfuls" (respectively, guitarist Michael Weikath and bassist Markus Grosskopf) have returned again, just as good as ever. The new member of the guitar duo is 27-year-old Sascha Gerstner, who is very skilled. Although their new official drummer is Stefan Schwarzmann, Mikkey Dee of Mercyful Fate and Motorhead performs drum duties on this record.

And now, of course, the three highlights of the record. Opener "Just A Little Sign" is a prime example of how power metal records generally open: fast, frantic, pure speed metal pandemonium. Track 3, "The Tune," is a perfect substitute for the dreaded "Song That Never Ends." And track 8, "Do You Feel Good," is perhaps the only other example of pure speed metal pandemonium on this album.
