5 stars  'Oceanborn' is the second studio album by Nightwish, one of my favorite. It has everything, from fast metal tracks to slow ballads. Is hard to describe their sound, since they mix such a wide pallete of sounds. The more I listen to this album, the more I realize just how much Nightwish as a whole changed by the time of Human. :II: Nature (2020). The album also full of ambition: every track wants to make an impression. It is incredibly beautiful, melodic, original, candid and innovative. Musically, it is complex, heavy and well structured. Everything, the guitars, the bass, the drums, the flutes, the strings are blended in perfectly. The lyrics are simple yet powerful. I can safely say none of the songs are bad. But there are a few which I don't find up to the level of the others. "Oceanborn" is an amazing album which transports you to a different world. . Oceanborn is a masterpiece.
