5 stars This is by far the most accomplished album of the band. The songs are powerful - but not too heavy, symphonic - but not too cheesy. Tarja's voice is simply awesome.

The opening songs are unbelievable: "She Is My Sin" is simply perfect - a blasting song - "The Kinslayer" is more lyrically-oriented (the background here is about the Columbine tragedy) - "Come Cover Me" has mellow passages that balance the catchy melody. After the power song "Wanderlust" comes the great ballad "Two For Tragedy" (a bit in the vein of "Swanheart yes, but a good one still). "Wishmaster" and "Bare Grace Misery" speed up the tempo again for the ultra-speedy "Crownless". Then again, like on their previous album, great songs to close the album: "Deep Silent Complete" is a beautiful mellow track, "Dead Boy's Poem" is very epic (voted as favorite by fans, and I can understand) and "FantasMic" is a bit a mix of all aspects of Nightwish music.

Rating: 94/100
