4 stars The loss of Nightwish's previous singer was sad, and I was looking forward to a new beginning with the Finnish band. When Dark Passion Play came out, I quickly got a copy. The Poet and the Pendulum opens the album with a nice vocal part by the new singer, Annete Olson, and then the musical masterpiece begins. The band, which is known for great symphonic pieces, lacks no symphonic sound here. The whole 13 minute epic is a great listen. Throughout the entire album, symphonic magnificence and musical wonder permeates. Olzon will have a great career with the band.

My favorite songs:

- The Poet and the Pendulum - Bye Bye Beautiful - Master Passion Greed - Sahara - Whoever Brings the Night - Seven Days to the Wolves
