Helloween - Straight Out of Hell (2013)
The latest Helloween album doesn't break any new ground, but then again why does it have to? They have a winning formula that appeals to fans of both traditional and power metal, and it wouldn't really make sense to change it at this point. On the other hand, this does reduce the variety of the album to a rather disappointing level. That's not to say that this a bad album at all. In fact, it's plenty catchy and packed with very strong riffs. Overall, it's yet another slab of enjoyable poppy metal from a legendary band. But, if you're looking something that'll really catch your attention and set itself apart from the pack then there's other albums you should be checking out.
