    Lacuna Coil

    This is so nice, Tarja did a video like this awhile ago. I'm glad the trend is continuing, I'd be happy to see more bands do this.

    Evanescence.

    No cool, hopefully there is a good reason for the cancellation. Because one day notice is way too short.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    After first listen I like it. I was ok with the single version of dead promises but I really enjoy the album version, I was always a big fan Railroads and I don't really like Tears In Rain but I'm happy to say it's the weakest song on the album and the rest are much better. I agree that the second half of the album is stronger, but I still mostly like the first and I don't see myself skipping any tracks on future listens (except maybe Tears In Rain). Overall I'm really happy, one of her better albums imo.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I really really liked Railroads. Tears In Rain is nice but for me not as grabbing, but who knows it might be a grower.

    cool, thanks for sharing I'll look it up

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I really like it, and it does have a similar vibe to Naiad (a song I also really like).

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    They sound good together, I like the single version but it is a little forgettable and you can tell something is missing. I think I will enjoy the full album version more.

    That was a really nice interview, great interesting questions. Thanks for posting.
  10. 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

    Reaction videos (to music)

    It's nice to hear other opinions, because I don't really like beth's stuff. She doesn't feel as genuine to me as sam or rebecca. I don't know when I watch her I always get the feeling she doesn't actually like the music she is listening to, I could be wrong but that is the vibe I get from her.

    Cellar Darling

    I liked the singles and I've listened to the album a little bit on spotify, it's a good album. I think it has a very nice mood to it, although I do wish the lyrics were somewhere online because it's hard for me to follow along with the story without them.

    I like how nice sam is, but I don't know the jargon so it's really hard for me to understand what he is saying. I wish more people would do videos on sharon and within temptation I only found these two (I mean analyses, there are a few more reactions but I'm kind of over those videos at the moment).

    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.

    Within Temptation II

    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.

    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.
  23. silverlining

    Reaction videos (to music)

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

    Reaction videos (to music)

    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)
