5 stars Nightwish are one of my favourite Progressive Metal bands of all time mainly of metal being the best genre in the world, in my view anyway!!

You get the power of the metal fast/headbanging/power guitar riffs and is the best riffs you can get, I first got into thrash metal via Metallica and Slayer (yes overated but they hold a soft spot in my heart).

This album has strong symphonic arranged music with, operatic vocals and epic synthesizer solos and metallica influenced riffs (what more could you want!!!).

Here are my favorite tracks reviwed:

"Wish I Had an Angel" it blatantly has fast/melodic/powerful chords, the bass player provides the vocals, symphonic textures and a lovely track 4/5.

"Planet Hell kicks" orchestra introduces the track and features string intruments then the guitar riffs come in heavy riffs and the songs remains in a power metal content throughout, plus the duo harmonic vocal give it a little touch too!! 5/5.

"The Siren" opens with the symphonic orchestra and the metal kicks and the lead singer is accompanied by background singers., mainly orchestra driven. The female backing vocal and the running operatic vocal time of three minutes. 4/5.

"Ghost Love Score" epic and orchestral driven with heavy powerful chords and operatic singing thrown in for good cause.very melodic too!! but only 3/5!!

Kuolema tekee taiteilijan the mellow song is sang in Finnish and trust me Finnish is the language I can't speak, as usual you have orchestral and nice harmonics and is my most favourite track on the whole album!! 5/5

Highly recommended, especially Progressive Metal fans, and obviously the Nightwish fans and "Once" is my third favourite Nightwish album, my first "Century Child".

GET THIS ALBUM NOW!!!
