2 stars This third "Nightwish" release is quite a let down when compared to their debut.

To tell the truth the surprise is gone by now. What was an asset (the theatrical female vocals) becomes some kind of burden by now. Let's see how the band will evolve for a definite judgement.

This "Wishmaster" is not a master album by any means. A long repetition of a used recipe. Short compositions (except the last two numbers), straight forward metal sounds (with a prog angle, I admit) and little passion felt throughout the album. In one word: average. Even if "FantasMic" is slightly better and should be considered as the highlight from this work.

The hype is all gone and this album is just a repetition of the same stuff: super fast beat, high pitched vocals and average melodies. Not my cup of tea. I would have expected more from this band. Maybe next time?

Two stars, no more.
