Lorely All For One. Black Night. Dandelion Wine. Track Listing - Disc 2. Shadow Of The Moon. Diamonds And Rust. They are all about their fans and this DVD is a perfect example of how they feel. Some of the more amazing performances are impromptu takes inside a castle. It is an amazing thing to witness. Because of the acoustic instruments they play All For One - Blackmores Night - Castles & Dreams (DVD) the perfect setting, the sounds resonate as the building serves as the amplifier.

The Concert Burg Veldenstein offers only two tracks where Blackmore picks up the electric guitar, which surprised me. After hearing all of the studio albums you think I would be used to this by now. Even though I have enjoyed All For One - Blackmores Night - Castles & Dreams (DVD) entire output immensely, it still seems odd that most of the music he plays now is on an acoustic.

Another classic song covered here is Ritchie's own Temple Of The King that originally appeared on the first Rainbow album. I love the original version sung by Ronnie James Dio who also passed away recentlyand it would be impossible to improve on that, but the present version is not bad. Don't get me wrong, there are definitely some rockin' moments that feature some All For One - Blackmores Night - Castles & Dreams (DVD) guitar work that interweaves with the more eclectic instruments.

These moments are few, though; and the majority of this album consists of vocally-driven tracks with some folksy accompaniments. What's the verdict, then? It often comes off as cheesy and corny, unlike the medieval parts on Pain of Salvation's "Be" or some of Kamelot's albums.

The album is enjoyable, but it really requires that you be in a certain mood. Plus, there is little here to bring you back again and again. All in all, an okay album that medieval music lovers will like, but that type of person isn't very common. These musicians are masters of their genre: I'm just not so sure I care all that much.

Their latest studio effort to date, is one of the lowest points in the long career of the All For One - Blackmores Night - Castles & Dreams (DVD). As if it wasn't enough with their previous cover of Wish You Were Here by Rednex a very silly Swedish novelty group who puts Eurotechno beats to folky tunes and were very popular in the high school discos when All For One - Blackmores Night - Castles & Dreams (DVD) was in my early teens! The album opens with one of these, a cover of a hit song by the Pop group One More Time who more than once participated in the Eurovision song contest, All For One - Blackmores Night - Castles & Dreams (DVD) for Sweden!

The other one is Journeyman, originally "Vandraren", by Nordman, another Swedish Folk Pop artist who had a big hit with this song sometime in the 90's. Non-Swedes who haven't heard the original versions on the radio might not appreciate the magnitude of the embarrassment involved in these choices of covers, but for me this is simply unbearable.

I want to hide my face in my hands when hearing these commercial ditties performed by the great Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple and Rainbow fame.
