4 stars I typically find the symphonic metal style which Nightwish are one of the leading exemplars of to be a decidedly hit or miss affair, but here I think Nightwish have a palpable hit. The best tracks on here tend to be the ones when the band go at it full pelt and rely on Tuomas Holopainen's keyboards to provide most of the symphonic gravitas, though a few pieces with a more orchestral touch do stand out, such as an inspired cover of the Snowman theme song Walking In the Air which gives Tarja the perfect opportunity to show just what she can do with her vocals.
