Pink Bubbles Go Ape (Expanded Edition)
7/3/2006 - Review by: Eric Compton
Helloween - Pink Bubbles Go Ape (Expanded Edition) - 2006 - Sanctuary Records
"Pink Bubbles Go Ape" has been included in the special "Expanded Edition" series from Castle Music, a run of re-issues that focuses on the Helloween catalogue up to and including "Better Than Raw". This series of re-issues has each album being re-mastered and including additional liner notes, photos, and bonus songs. My favorite aspect of the whole series is the fantastic insight from the members, who take the time to share their thoughts in a print interview found within the "thicker" booklet. For this release Michael Weikath talks with Dave Ling of Metal Hammer/Classic Rock magazine. Among y favorite quotes:
Ling - "How would you describe your own input to "Pink Bubbles Go Ape"?
Weikath - "I've gotta admit that I was getting weary of coming up with heavy metal anthems. I wanted to wimp out and go commercial. That explains the crappy tracks of mine that are on there. Maybe I was unprepared and partying too much.
For me personally these expanded edition re-issues really helps a Helloween fan like myself better understand what was going on in the minds of the members during those times. With the additional extras comes four bonus tracks that includes a cover of Elvis Presley's "Blue Suede Shoes", lifted from the B-side of "Kids Of The Century" as well as the other B-side to the single, "Shit And Lobster".
