Rings Of Saturn
5 stars I was crushed to hear the guys in Nightwish had left Tarja go. But, many times us fans do not know the whole story and predjudcied opinions and bias creep into our initial thoughts. Now that I work with people in various professional situations I can see how someone might become frusterated by anothers failures and arrogance. I am now more understanding.

The franchise known as Nightwish have done well by finding a beautiful, hungry, down to earth singer with a superb voice in Annette Olzon. Recently seeing the band live, having so much fun on stage and the wide eyes of Annette as fans yelled, "We love you Annette" and her subsequent tears, was a wonderrful sight. The girl has presence and can sing. The band....well they are just as GREAT as always. Only now, the drama and tension have left.

The new album, Dark passion Play is amazing. Right off, we get a monster epic much like Once's, Ghost Love Score. A few straight ahead prog rockers like Bye Bye Beautiful and Amaranth break the piece up but then it comes full circle with more incredible Nightwish magic.

This band is just amazing and I hope they continue to make great, emotional music in this same vein for years to come. They are a tremendous inspiration and treat to listent to. True eye candy.

Dark Passion play is the next stage for Nightwish and is a must have for nightwish fans or prog fans in general....

Rings Of Saturn | 5/5 |
