Default Nightwish - Dark Passion Play

Epic, in every sense of the word.

The new girl (anette), aside from being incredibly hot, has a great voice, and in my totally honest opinion, has a greater harmony with Marco than Tarja did. What's more, marco gets one of the best songs on the album (Master Passion Greed) all to him self.

I'll totally blast this whenever I'm kicking ass in any game.

Holy crap, someone else who likes Nightwish, lol. Ive been a fan since Angels Fall First, aka the beginning.

Anyways, Anette is actually a better singer than tarja, whether or not it fits entirely is more the case. However I do like anette a lot and I do believe Poet and the Pendulum is quite possibly the most epic song ever written.

Tarja I liked on the albums, but personally I felt like she was horrible in most the live vids I saw, a few were good.

Poet, Bye Bye (God I love its meaning, its so deliciously angry), Amaranth.....pretty much every song on the album minus track 8 has some real depth and beauty to it. I think its safe to say that if you can get over tarja this is probably the best album yet.

Nightwish is one of the most epic bands I've ever listened to.

After listening to the album some 20 times now I must say overall it shapes up to be the best album that Tuomas has ever conceived. He'll be hard pressed to top it. Though in the future I would like more vocals from Marco, if only supporting. This album has shown me just what an incredible vocalist he is, and he definitely makes my top 10 if not top 5 favorite male metal vocalists.

It's a great album, I keep forgetting that most people are just not hearing it. The show I saw with Tarja was amazing, on their one full US tour. It was a shame tho that she couldn't be bothered to come hang out with us like the guys did. Marco is an awesome dude, and Tuomas is a funny drunk. :) I've been getting used to Anette over the last .. while.. and I really like her voice. The live show I heard with her on vox was really good, a few sticky bits in some of the old songs, but overall she sounds great and I can't wait to see her live for myself in a few weeks. Tarja had some impressive shoes to fill vocally, and I think Anette fits them very well. I look forward to many successful years with Anette singing for Nightwish.
