All Music Guide - Greg Prato
Can you get a more bombastic opening than "Invitation" on Helloween's Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. 2 in which victorious horns and marching drums signal Helloween's triumphant return? Probably not, but that's exactly how the German metalists start off the follow-up to their cult hit predecessor, Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. 1. Having caught the ears of prog metalists worldwide with Pt. 1 which was praised in such metal publications as Kerrang! at the time, Helloween wasted little time issuing a follow-up.

Having caught the ears of prog metalists worldwide with Pt. 1 which was praised in such metal publications as Kerrang! at the time, Helloween wasted little time issuing a follow-up.

[In 2006, the album was reissued as a double-disc remastered version via Sanctuary Records, in which several B-sides and remixes from this era were included.]
