Time Will Tell is the (sadly)last Fifth Angel album,and once again a musthave heavy metal milestone just like their debut album.
I've heard of many people blaming TWT cause it lacks of musical variety,but I can't agree that:in my opinion every track has it's mood and only a few of 80 mainsteam metal songs are present(Midnight Love,Time Will Tell or Feel The Heat)but all the rest sounds as only Fifth Angel can.
How can be forgotten songs like the devastating We Rule(the closest track to their original sound),Wait For Me,Seven Hours,and the two great ballads Broken Dreams and So Long?
Ted Pilot sings even better than before and his vocal melodies are always amazing,Ken Mary performs great drums patterns,very brainy,constantly focusing on the details of his figurations
and the new comer Kendall Betchell plays his guitar as good as James Byrd before him,shredding all the time without forgetting to provide anthemic tunes and explosive riffs with Ed Archer.
Don't mind who considers this album a failure,'cause Fifth Angel class speaks by itself and this album holds 11 of the best metal songs of all time and a high quality songwriting.
Would you expect less from a legendary band called Fifth Angel?

This album continues the legacy of their debut and can only be described as another masterpiece. It's full of melodic and progressive music, catchy choruses and amazing guitar work. Something between Queensryche and Pink Cream 69 is how it can be classified. With lots of powerful tunes and two soul-touching ballads this is an album that leaves no one unsatisfied and everyone wanting more!

1989's Time Will Tell is the second and final album by Fifth Angel. On the band's self-titled debut album, Fifth Angel took the American power metal sound and injected it with plenty of melody, toning down the fist-raising aggression in favor of a more accessible approach. The result was highly melodic, but it was still unmistakably power metal.

On Time Will Tell, the band edged further towards the melodic side, perhaps in an attempt to reach a wider audience. Songs like "Midnight Love," "Broken Dreams" and "Feel the Heat" certainly weren't targeting the power metal crowd, though their version of the UFO classic "Lights Out" was a nice nod to the old school. I think Time Will Tell is still a pretty excellent album, but the band was torn between wanting to sound like Iron Maiden and trying to appeal to fans of Europe and Def Leppard. That's a hard line to walk.

Time Will Tell is still a better than average melodic metal album, but the band's watered down approach ended up alienating die-hard metal fans and at the same time failed to bring many new fans to the Fifth Angel flock. The band ended up calling it a day soon after, though there have been reunion plans announced recently.

I've heard many people bag the 2nd album from Fifth Angel but i actually prefer it to the first. Sure some of the songs are quite mellow (Feel the Heat, Time Will Tell) compared to the debut album, but theres no mistaking this is damn fine underrated metal. Check the solo in 'Wait For Me', and the pre-solo chug in 'Seven hours' is killer. To me the group plays with so much emotion. If it weren't for amazon i wouldn't have even heard of this band. A great album

Back in the 80's I would buy almost every metal album that got released. Of course some were disappointments, but this one isn't even close. I wasn't sure if this band could top their first release, but they did. This was an overlooked band whose music never got the recognition it deserved. Both albums are a must for a metal fan's collection.

Let's face it...Fifth Angel is definitely one of those bands in the 80s that came and went all too soon. Lumped in with the multitudes of "flavor of the month" metal that came out in the 80s, they really didn't have a chance to blossom into their potential. The polished production and more "radio friendly" songs are a bit of a departure from the dark and hungry nature of their more power metal debut. Granted, there are some choice tunes on this sophomore release, such as "Lights Out" (UFO cover), "Seven Hours", and the title track. Other songs sound incredibly dated and the lyrics come off a bit Poison-ish. Let's face it...a song called "We Rule" sounds like something coming out of the 80's LA scene as opposed to something from the land of Queensryche. I would like to have seen where the band went from here, being a HUGE fan of the debut. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be as the band disbanded not long after. I think I'd rather have a band remain fairly underground (like Fates Warning) and have longetivity and a loyal fan base, as opposed to trying desperately to appease the label execs and the MTV crowd of the day, thus isolating your initial fan base in the process. I would liken the difference between the debut album and "Time Will Tell" to "Operation Mindcrime" and "Empire". "Mindcrime" was Ryche's 2112. It was the one album that no one expected and came from left field...whereas "Empire", while having some good songs, took a huge turn into mass commercialism. This album is no different in that sense.
