After the first two Keeper of the Seven Keys albums it seemed like Helloween could do no wrong, and then they did wrong. 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 Pink Bubbles the melodies are boring, the drumming limp and the vocals lazy. When a comedy song is one of the best tracks your album has to offer, maybe it's time to change tactics, again.
