'Melodic Power Metal'의 완성체를 처음으로 접할 수 있었던 Helloween의 Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part l 앨범이다. 보통의 락 매니아들 사이에선 본작을 'part 2'보다 오히려 높게 평가하는 것을 종종 보기도 하였다. Kai Hansen의 이중 포지션 부담을 덜고자 약관의 보컬리스트 Michael Kiske를 새로운 멤버로 맞이 하였는데, 깊은 울림의 뛰어난 고음역으로 최고의 인기를 구가하며 정상의 실력파 보컬리스트 대열에 합류하게 된다. 우리나라 사람치고 모르는 사람이 없는 A Tale That Wasn't Right, Helloween 최고의 곡 중 하나로 끝장나는 멜로디를 들려주는 Future World등을 수록하고 있다. 최강 라인업의 탄생이다. Michael Kiske, Kai Hansen, Michael Weikath, Markus Grosskopf, Ingo Schwichtenberg. '헬로윈 유파'의 서곡.

Part 2보다는 약간 못하나 Future World와 A Tale That Wasn't Right이 대표곡들인건 부정할 수 없는 사실

개인적으론 키퍼2보다 1이 더 좋다....흥겨운 멜로디에 빠져보시길...

키스케의 보컬은 내 취향이 아니지만 그걸 감안하더라도 멋진 앨범!!
