2.0 out of 5 stars An unfortunate release for Edguy November 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I really wish I didn't have to say this, but I have to echo the thoughts of the individual below me. This album was just dismal when it comes to any previous release by the likes of Edguy. I have been a fan of the things that most people like and most people don't like of Edguy, and upon listening to this, I feel like this was a HUGE step back for their creative writing process. Tracks that used to be very full of sound have been severely cut back to very bland sounding 4/4 time rock jams. Vocals and lyrics are just not hitting me as they used to. I readily admit I'm a terrible reviewer so give me some credit.
Ok, I get it, this isn't supposed to be Avantasia, and this isn't supposed to be like the previous works per-say, but this album gives me the feeling of a lot more lost than evolved. But hey, it's bound to happen. Bands release bad albums and most of the time produce epics after that. Can't learn to produce results without a few mistakes along the way right? Anyways, I'm not one of those guys who's going to say "I will never buy another album from them" etc because Edguy are still one of the bands I truly love and respect. Better luck next go around.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not worth getting tinnitus over February 13, 2009
By Charles
Format:Audio CD
Edguy's "Tinnitus Sanctus" isn't your typical Edguy album, nor did my ears even hear songs that stood out as Edguy to me. What we have here is something different, but so different it's hardly the band's signature sound, and so different that it's not even original. Edguy is a German metal band that have done things differently from "typical" power metal bands. Edguy dropped the power metal since 2004 in a way, and "Rocket Ride" was hardly power metal at all. If "Rocket Ride" was a hard rock record (many ways it was like hard rock and 80s classic heavy metal), then "Tinnitus Sanctus" is practically pure hard rock. There's hardly any metal on this album. There's hardly any Edguy on this album. There's hardly any creativity and musicality that previous Edguy albums had. Not even the band's video release "Ministry of Saints" which was a pretty heavy track but lacked creativity from Tobias Sammet's previous writing. "Ministry of Saints" was a cool song, it was more Edguy than any other song on the album, it wasn't as commercial as "Superheroes" but still commercial nonetheless. "Ministry of Saints" had a ridiculously repetitive guitar riff and lacks memorable guitar play but the melodies were nice on that. "Tinnitus Sanctus" is an album that simplifies Edguy's sound to a very disappointing low. There's almost no guitar riffs that stand out on this album as most of the guitar riffs are simply rhythm power chords, guitar solos are often short and typical of 80s American metal/hard rock tunes. What the hell is this? What happened to Edguy? This album sounds so...American rock that perhaps their European (majority) fanbase would have some major backlash against the band. Vocal melodies on this album are so mainstream sounding, they lack originality, and they don't even sound like Edguy melodies anymore. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything is relative.... December 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When comparing to other EdGuy, this is not my favorite. However, when comparing to other bands, I still think this is an above average CD. There are a couple great tunes on it, especially track #1. This has a less heavy feel to it, and personally I miss Mandrake and Hellfire Club style. At any rate, still some catchy tunes on this one, and powerful vocals (one thing I'm sure will never change no matter what Tobi's singing), although the lyrics not so straightforward. I'm a huge fan and will hold out for the next album, although this seems to be the standard progression for most bands...they seem to mellow with age.

It's whats been said by others, Tobias seems to be defending this album by "real fans love it", well I am a real fan and will always like Edguy, Avantasia, and Tobias; but it will be awhile before I give this disc another try. I don't care if a band gets softer, plays rock instead of metal, and am open minded to anything a group I like does as long as I enjoy the songwriting. The guitar riffs are bland / generic, as if no time were spent making them unique, the lyrics didn't grab me, and not even a single chorus was memorable. Whatever it is Tobias expected to achieve with this album is beyond me. I stomached part of rocket ride and the three new avantasia releases, and really do hope that at the next go at writing a record he'll find that songwriting part of himself again. It's rare i'll speak badly of a record by a band I like, and of course i'll go see them in concert and get their next record, but if your a new fan or one of those "not open minded metal fans" than don't waste your money. This is a huge letdown. If he doesn't want to make copies of his old albums over and over, than fine, but write something powerful and meaningful again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately....Worst Edguy Album..... November 30, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have to start saying that I had high expectations for this album. After reading an interview where Tobias said when they recorded Rocket Ride they were trying to prove they could joke around a bit but still do serious music(which I think they did cause Rocket Ride is a hell of an album but with a completely different direction from any other Edguy album before) and now, with Tinnitus Sanctus they were back on their road and always including new ideas etc etc etc. Anyways, after reading that interview I thought...well...they already tried something new, it came up decent, now they're back on track and maybe they'll deliver another Mandrake or Hellfire Club....geesshh I was wrong!
This album lacks of emotion, power and balls, and creativity....elements that have always been present in previous Edguy albums, including the "out of the blue" Rocket Ride. It is a shame that this album fell into the mediocre category because I strongly believe Edguy can still deliver strong performances in the studio. I don't want to get into the track by track non-sense.
Like many people have written before me, there are some tracks that you'll actually skip before they even get to the middle, just because they are numb, powerless and weak. There are some tracks were you can definitely get a hint of the real Edguy music but still is way far from their best. Overall a mediocre effort by a band that can surely do way better because they have proven so. I don't think they've fallen out of ideas but I do think it was a forced album with a very poor production...good luck next time Edguy...I'll be eagerly waiting for it

It saddens me to hear this album. I really liked Edguy, I think they have made some of the best power metal albums to date. But this album is not even Metal, it's power rock. Read more
