It's like saying you liked Blaze and having everyone come by to tell you Bruce was better. 😛  Really forgot how high Tarja can go, haven't listened to Nightwish in ages.

  I liked Blaze (I even have some of his solo stuff), but Bruce was better. Hey, what's with the torches and pitchforks there guys?

Haha, yeah, that was the one! I haven't watched any others of her, so I can't tell if she cries easilly or not :p I don't disagree that it was bad form to ask someone like Anette to sing songs she could never match, she's great in her own way

It could have worked if they all sat down and reworked the pieces on the tour setlist(s). Granted I've only seen Anette live once during the Dark Passion Play tour, and Dark Passion Play is - for me - by far and large their weakest album, but she did well on the new songs, but having her sing Over The Hills And Far Away or Ever Dream without adapting the songs for her range and vocal style was one of the less pleasant experiences in live music I've had.

The audience responded by chanting "Tarja, Tarja, Tarja!" which I thought was in extremely poor taste. As if that was her fault.

I loved Imaginaerum and was sad when Anette didn't work out (to put that fustercluck mildly) for Nightwish. Considering the gap a Nightwish vocalist these days needs to bridge between old and new songs Floor is probably one of the few vocalists on the planet that a) can do that easily and b) doesn't mind being part of a metal outfit. I have no idea what Nightwish rakes in but she could easily do something more prestigious or with more income. Or both, probably. :p

Why haven't I heard them before?! This is right up my alley!


Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

A lot less cringy than I was expecting.

I love Rammstein. After Metallica bailed out on me with a last minute warning that their concert was cancelled, I've found myself a new "must go and see live!" band. Just bloody tricky these days with the world in lock down and groups of more than 2 people prohibited 😂
