    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Now I wish I'd done this!!! ...also...awwww...I simply loved that video. Heart-warming, smiling the whole time. (despite some of the dodgy lip-syncing here and there haha!) And every time I hear it, I like Railroads more.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I thought the same thing!! Really really enjoyed her voice in this one. The lyrics - eh whatever. But her voice made me happy

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I really liked Railroads. Made me happy inside listening. (In my opinion, so much better than Dead Promises...yes, yes, only my opinion!!) Need to listen a few more times now

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Too poetic indeed. And I thought my writing was overwrought at times. Wow. Still enjoyed reading it. Although that last sentence seemed a bit hyperbolic..."It is a work of drama and excellence and deserves more than five stars!" We shall see.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    My comments in bold/italic/caps. I agree with pretty much everything haha. ESPECIALLY with the operatic vocals. I miss this. Partly why I love all the early Tarja era albums the best. I know Floor can handle this - I've heard her sing Stargazers. So..please please please? I'm not getting my hopes up though. I think Tuomas started moving away from operatic style vocals with Once haha. (Maybe even before...). I do like orchestra but honestly...orchestra for orchestra's sake is boring. I don't want it on every song. Maybe 2-3. Honestly...I need to reset my expectations because I just want another Oceanborn/Wishmaster/CC and I know that's not what we're getting.

    As someone who isn't well versed in sound mixing, what's wrong with those levels? Curious and trying to learn.

    What are you reading now?

    Wheel of Time is a controversial series. I love love love it, but am aware that not everyone does. I love wordy and dense tomes. I adore detailed description and meandering plots. I'm ok with very slow character arcs. A lot of people are a little less patient than I am. Wheel of Time is slightly old-fashioned in its movement, and definitely is not as "exciting" as Sanderson's books. I much prefer Jordan to Sanderson, because Jordan's books just seem to have more gravitas and seem more real. Sanderson is a great author (I've read pretty much everything he's written), but his books are a little more lightweight, at least in my opinion. Jordan's characters definitely can get annoying and are not for everyone. But, for the first book (Eye of the World), it takes about half the book to really kick into gear. Jordan is very deliberately paying homage to the classic fantasy tale of "boy from middle of nowhere goes on a grand quest..." and lays on the Tolkien allusions fast and thick. But once you get past the trope-y first part of the book, it really gets quite good. I'd recommend to read the first four books - if you don't like the series then, then just stop and save yourself the time. Book 4 is one of my favourites and the first four books are quite strong, in my opinion. Series starts to slow down with books 5 & 6 (while still having some epic sequences!!) and books 7-10 are...a bit of a slog. I still love them, but the plot does slow to a crawl. Book 11 is fantastic, but after that one is when Jordan died. And then Sanderson wrote books 12-14 which...most people really like, but I'm not as much a fan because his writing style just isn't comparable to Jordan's. Again though, Jordan's books really do have more of an old-fashioned feel to them and Rand isn't necessarily strong and sassy. BUT there are a few characters who do fit that role, just give it a few books Now Rothfuss on the other hand...I could read his prose all day long. I do so wish he would hurry up and finish the third book...
  15. Question...is it allowed if it's an "edit" - i.e., audio from one concert & video from another? My favourite version of DBP is this way haha. Video is simply magnificent (displaying Tarja fully into the song and oh so emotional), but audio is from FWtE...I love it so, but understand if it's not allowed...
