    Reaction videos (to music)

    I don't like when people use their kids to get views, no matter how wholesome the activity being filmed is. I judge people who make reaction videos, if I like them, how they present themselves, how they acted, if I find them genuine, et cetera. I'm very uncomfortable judging children the same way, so I don't watch these kinds of videos with them. And just because beauty pageants exist doesn't mean I have to be ok with all lesser forms of bad behavior, and I consider exposing your kid to the internet bad behavior. About the crying thing, some people are just very emotional. I do believe most crying in reaction video is fake, but if it is entertaining enough I don't care.

    Another interview not a lot of new info, but he asks her if they are planning anything for the 25 year anniversary or the Mother Earth reissue on vinyl and her answer made me laugh. I personally love the album but there are some songs I skip so hearing her say that so bluntly "it's not like the whole album was that great" was funny.

    If you are looking for a detailed analysis and you don't mind the length I'd recommend this guy:

    The Singers' Topic!

    I think part of the problem is that in every song he shows off everything he can do. That is good for winning a TV competition, but not exactly conducive to enjoying music, it's too much stuff. I also think it has to do with the people around him, maybe in a few years (if he still has his voice, the way he or the people around him seem to being pushing him you never know) he will release some good music after he matures a bit.

    The Singers' Topic!

    I can't really connect with Dimash's music either. This is the only song of his I've heard and actually liked, and even here I only enjoy small segments of what he is doing.

    She isn't even singing in italian, and even if she was as I understand it the main thing about operatic singing is that you project over the orchestra so people can hear you.

    Not to be a huge downer but I don't like kids in videos all that much feel exploitative to me.

    Yeah, also I think most of the vocal coach react people listen to the music beforehand so they have more to say about it.

    Everything he said about opera is wrong, but I feel like he just googled tarja saw she and a background in classical singing and then just didn't pay attention at all to what floor was actually doing in the video. I like some of Alex's stuff, never heard of ProgPiglet (I'll look him up) but I find A&P-REACTS videos really boring.

    I feel bad promoting this (please don't listen to anything he saying about singing)

    Crying while listening to music can be natural, but people can also over do it and "fake cry" for attention in these kinds of videos. Acting fake and over the top like that personally turns me off (I think Rebecca exaggerates her reactions a little but that at the core she is genuine so I still like watching her sometimes). This is one of my favorite reaction videos and she almost cries but I feel she is showing her true feelings so I'm not bothered by it.

    I just learned you can do that, I wish I had known about that feature earlier. I think because reaction videos first started out as seeing someones totally blind first impression of what they were watching, I don't really mind if they don't research the band. But pretending you did your research only to spout off nonsense is just ridiculous. Getting Floor and Tarja mixed up is one thing, saying in opera it doesn't matter if you understand the words or comparing a method of classifying singers to the indian caste system is a whole other level of stupid. And I agree about the overuse of technical terms to look smart and try and convince the audience you know what you are talking about. @geoman286 I really like Rebecca Vocal Athlete's personality and she has some fun videos, but I'm not convinced she is that knowledgeable about singing either.
  14. How do you feel about reaction videos? There seem to be like a million of them on Nightwish. On the one hand I have nothing against a little mindless entertainment once and a while and there are people that are introduced to new music through them (I think I even saw someone on the form say that's how he got into Nightwish) so that is a positive. On the other hand they can be really annoying and I don't like that youtube keeps trying to get me to watch them. Also there is this subgenre of reaction videos the "vocal coach react" and I find some of those are full of misinformation, which I think is a problem because they present themselves as educational ( I literally just saw a video claiming italian has 5 vowels vs english that has 25 ). So I would like to hear others opinion about these kinds of videos and if you do like them post a favorite, thanks

    That's my favorite song off the album, I really love the lyrics and how they go with the melody. I didn't think they would sing this one live, and to be honest I didn't think Sharon could pull it off that well (her pop vocals sound great in the studio but they aren't so hot live) but I think in the end she did a good job. And she wouldn't be Sharon if she didn't mess up the lyrics a bit
