1] Ravenblack - 6/10
2] Wrestle the Devil - 4/10
3] Open Sesame - 5/10
4] Landmarks - 5/10
5] The Mountaineer - 7/10 (MVP! finally... I was scared there wouldn't be a soaring chorus in the whole new lot)

I gotta say, I can kinda see why these songs were outtakes. They lack the power and excitement that general Edguy hits are dripping in. They even feel like Mandrake outtakes at some points. I'm glad he released them for us anyway.

My understanding is, these 5 songs are not outtakes from any album but 5 NEW songs.
The only outtake was Reborn in the Waste which was left off Kingdom of Madness - I think.
:)

I can't list what i think of them all yet as it is still too early.
I was very taken with Landmarks at first but that has since changed to The Mountaineer and Open Sesame.
The one that seems to stay steady is Ravenblack.
I guess like all music, it will simply apply to my mood which songs i am in the mood for.
:wink:

As Muppet said, these songs are NOT outtakes, they're all new. To me they don't feel like outtakes either, but that's your opinion and I won't be a bitch about it. Anyways, my ratings are:

1) Open Sesame
2) Wrestle the Devil
3) Landmarks
4) Ravenblack
5) The Mountaineer

...which doesnt mean that I dislike any of the songs, by the way :)

i can't realy put a number to the songs but i gotta say that i love them all in one or the other way.... i love the message and the melody of "Ravenblack"... "The Mountaineer" and some of the lyrics of "Open Sesame".. "Landmarks" is verry touching and even "Wrestle the Devil" (which i didn't like as much when i first heard it) is realy growing on me... the lyrics are silly/funny and the melody cheers you up and gets stuck in your ears.....

As I understand it, it's two new songs from Tobi (Open Sesame, Ravenblack maybe?), and a song each brought in by Eggi (Wrestle the Devil), Jens and Dirk reworked with Tobi.

Ravenblack - 7
Wrestle the Devil - 6
Open Sesame - 7
Landmarks - 8
The Mountaineer - 8

Ravenblack and Open Sesame were written by Tobi, Wrestle the Devil by Eggi, Tobi and Sascha, Landmarks by Tobi and Jens, and The Mountaineer was written by Dirk (this goes for music, the lyrics were all written by Tobi) :pinkhappy:

Faves so far are the first 3....Ravenblack, Wrestle The Devil & Open Sesame.
Landmarks and The Mountaineer are still good but the others are just catchy as hell! :lol:

I think the new songs kick massive ass! They make my adrenalin pump and thats what its all about.

Ravenblack 6/10
Wrestle 7/10 (really grows on you)
Open Sesame 9/10, this one makes me jump while sitting down...really love the lyrics, the are so edguy!
Landmarks 9/10, better than babylon!
Mountaineer 8/10 catchy as fuck

If this would have been a full lenght album it would probably have been my favourite one and would have kicked Rocket Ride off its throne.
