HELLOWEEN / Pink Bubbles Go Ape (1991)

After the first two Keeper of the Seven Keys albums it seemed Helloween could do no wrong, and then they did this.  The absence of founding member and wizard guitar player Kai Hansen is painfully apparent.  He left to pastures new and the pumpkin rolled downhill.  For most of the album, the melodies are boring, the drumming is limp and the vocals are lazy.  When one of the comedy songs is one of the best tracks your album has to offer it's time to change tactics, again.

Songs of Note: Kids of the Century; Heavy Metal Hamsters
