4 stars Well... it's a bit hard for me to write a full review of any Nightwish album, because I always listen to about the half of the tracks on them... seriously, these tracks are average: I listened to them once or twice and I don't feel like listening to them again.

BUT! Every Nightwish album has got numerous great songs! These are in this album, in my opinion: 1. Elvenpath: Good opening for a new band's first album, for a new band's history. (2. Astral Romance): It's a great song, but not on this album :), no wonder they re-recorded it. It sounds awful here, it screams that it requires more work on it... 4 years:) 3. Nymphomaniac Fantasia: My personal favourite on this album. Tarja is a wonderful singer, and with the others' rock-manner this song becomes one of their best songs. 4. Know Why the Nightingale Sings: typical Nightwish song. Fast-slow switching, many percussion in the background, Tarja's voice in its full strength, 2 electric guitars after the vocals :) 5. Lappi

Primas | 4/5 |
