Vinland Saga is the second studio album of the German-Norwegian band Leaves' Eyes released in 2005. This is a concept album that tells the story of the discovery of America ("Vinland") by the Norwegian Viking Leif Eriksson. I write my college essay about this album when I was a student. The limited edition digipak contains two bonus tracks: Heal and For Amelie (New Version), as well as a video clip for Elegy, interviews with band members and documentary footage of the album.

The recording, mixing, mastering of the album was performed by Alex Krull in the studio of Mastersound Studio. The music of the album is written by Alexander Krull, Matthias Roederer, Thorsten Bauer and Chris Luchaup. The lyrics of the album are written by Liv Christine.

Enjoy: YouTube !

Radiohead: OK Computer and Kid A.

Don't know what story they tell, but they'll take you on a journey.

Ditto for Link in Park's A Thousand Suns

Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire de Melody Nelson

Besides the intriguing story the album is musically very interesting - with warm, funky, mysterious vibe.

Conceptually speaking, Histoire de Melody Nelson is perhaps the closest thing to a musical imagining of Vladimir Nabokov’s seminal and controversial 1955 novel Lolita. This is not to say that the two masterworks are directly linked, but that they present licentiously similar scenarios. Put simply, both concern a sexual relationship between a middle-aged man and an underage girl. Thus, for obvious reasons, were either effort executed with anything short of nuanced perfection, the dubious subject matter alone would render both works downright perverted, inaccessible and wholly inexcusable.

But like Lolita, Histoire de Melody Nelson is an artistic triumph about the power of human obsession. It’s an important, enjoyable work and one that rightfully demands to be heard almost 50 years later.
