Format: Audio CD
Mister Sandman is probably not the kind of single you'd expect from power metal's finest band, but Blind Guardian has a history of unexpected cover songs (Barbara Ann anyone?). The band's speed metal rendition of the 50's classic (yes, it's THAT Mister Sandman) is hilarious and deserves recognition for sheer audacity if nothing else. I mean, did you ever really expect to be banging your head to Mister Sandman?

The disc also includes edited and demo versions of existing Blind Guardian songs and an unremarkable cover of Deep Purple's Hallelujah. The demos are decent, but don't really add much. And since the title track is available on the Forgotten Tales album, you're left with the question of whether this is worth buying for a single song?

If you're a die-hard Blind Guardian fan like me, the answer is yes. I'll take any Blind Guardian studio material I can find, and though Hallelujah may not be the band's best cover song, it is still worth hearing. If you're a casual fan though, your money is better spent on one of their excellent studio albums.

Follow Up: Mr. Sandman and Hallelujah are now both available on the 2007 reissue of Forgotten Tales, which I suppose makes this single obsolete.

If you are really a Blind Guardian fan, you definitely think "Imaginations from the Other Side" is one of the best albums this band ever recorded. Having this single is highly recommended to just feel your BG's collection is complete!
