Overview

Edguy takes a huge step forward with 1998's Vain Glory Opera. Showing more classical influences, the songwriting take a huge step forward in quality and maturity. This album shows Edguy developing a truly unique songwriting style, combining metal and classical music with male choir-style backing vocals on the choruses. Most of the best songs, however, like "Until We Rise Again," "How Many Miles," the soft "Scarlet Rose" and the great title track are found on the first half of the album, giving it a slightly uneven feel. Still, Vain Glory Opera shows that there is a great new young band and it's name is Edguy. [A Japanese version of the CD was also released.]
