    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    I agree. It's actually funny that everyone seems to praise the mixing on STST whereas I find it kind of lacking somehow. Keyboards, pipes and orchestra are not very audible and to me guitars sound a bit off. Floor sounds great on it though but other than that it's not my favourite soundwise. To me after the first listen Decades sounds very good!

    Decades: Live in Buenos Aires

    I actually got the earbook version with Blu ray and CDs BUT as I was starting to watch it I realized that my 12 year old PS3 wasn't willing to play Blu ray discs anymore So I just listened to the CDs and they were perfect! To me this is the best sounding live release by Nightwish since End of an Era. It seems I NEED to get a new Blu ray player. The only complaint I have is that they didn't fix Marko's vocals on The Kinslayer where he completely messes up his lyrics. But other than that 5/5 👌

    The Old Era

    I doubt Tarja even knows such a song exists and even if she did what does it matter anymore? It's been years. For years Tarja was saying that she doesn't want to be in any contact with Nightwish ever again. Yet here we are. Recently she's been talking very nicely of Marko and she's been in contact with Tuomas too (via email at least) and now her friend Floor is the singer of Nightwish and she's saying she's very proud of her. It's hard to see any sort of reunion concert happening anytime soon but at this pace I'm quite sure that at some point we'll be seeing interviews were Tarja says that past is past and that she's met Tuomas and that they are quite alright now. I don't think one song is an issue here. A song that Tuomas doesn't even want to play along with Bye Bye Beautiful because he's not that person anymore and he doesn't feel the way he did when he wrote them.

    The Old Era

    In person apparently. It was a Finnish tv interview last year. She said that they've been talking about the past. I kind of got the impression that Tuomas was apologizing to her or something. She said that there is a connection but she was not sure whether or not they could ever become actual friends again. Edit: I think I found it. This interview is so awkward. Edit 2: Sorry I actually meant this one but it's from the same day. Unfortunately no subtitles.

    The Old Era

    Well to be exact she said they haven't been in contact that much. Tarja has said in previous interviews that she hasn't met Tuomas since she left the band but that they have been in touch via email. I don't see this contradicting with what she said today. She also said that nowadays she's in good terms with Marko and that she's really proud of Floor and that they've been good friends for years. It brought a smile to my face 😊

    Nightwish World Tour 2020

    I think it is said that the Olympic Stadium should be ready by the end of July or the beginning of August. So if everythint goes well there is a slight possibility the concert could happen. I really wish it would

    Nightwish World Tour 2020

    Even though the European tour appears to happen in November they might actually do a stadium show in Finland next summer. They did big shows in Finland with Tampere & Joensuu (2015), Himos (2016) and Lahti (2018) too. One can only hope

    The Dark Element and Tarja opening for Nightwish? 😂 Just joking

    I truly hope not. I like WT but I think both bands are big enough to headline a tour on their own.

    Nightwish Off Topic

    I can't believe what just happened. Angels Fall First and Wishmaster have been gone from Finnish Spotify for a few months and even though I have all the albums already in my collection I usually listen to them on Spotify for its convenience. Because of that I felt a bit sad for the absence of those two albums on the service. Last Thursday I decided to find out what had happened to those two albums. I sent an email to Ewo and asked about them. He responded the next day that Universal holds the rights to AFF and WM and that he had no idea what's going on with them. Then I reached out to Universal Finland and told them about my discussion with Ewo. They said that they would try to find out what's going on. Now two days later I read from Reddit that AFF and WM had suddenly reappeared on Australian Spotify. I of course had to also check Finnish Spotify right away. And you what, there they were. Both AFF and WM were there again. I was so happy!
  13. Oh perfect! For some reason I remembered it was 15 and didn't check. Now I can add more songs!
  14. This is a great thread! It is really hard to choose but I'll try anyway. 1. Ghost Love Score - Wacken 2013 - 5 pts I wasn't actually a big fan of the studio version originally but this live version is truly epic. It definitely wasn't bad by any means of course but to me it felt just 'nice' and nothing more but all that has completely changed since. It has become my go to Nightwish song whenever I try explain this band and its music to someone. It gives me goosebumps every single time even after all these years and no other song in the world does that quite like this one. Simply perfect. 2. The Poet And The Pendulum - Album version - 4 pts I first heard of Nightwish right before the release of Once. The first album I listened to must have been Century Child and I was so new to the band that I didn't have time to get hyped up for Once before it came out. Dark Passion Play was the first Nightwish album that I was really looking forward to with excitement. When I finally got the album and listened to it I was blown away by this opening masterpiece. It has everything I could possibly want from a Nightwish song. I love live renditions of it sung by Floor but the biggest bombastic epicness can only be found on the studio version in my opinion and therefore I chose that one. 3. Ever Dream - Album version - 3 pts This song always has a special place in my heart. It is the first Nightwish song I ever heard and it's lyrics really speak to me on a deeper level even after all these years. I simply love it. There are many good live renditions of this song but I still prefer the original. 4. Sleeping Sun - 1999 version - 3 pts This one is a real Nightwish classic. I'm from Finland and for some reason this song brings me a warm homelike feeling. It feels pure and honest. I love Tarja's vocals here and the whole vibe of this song. I also like the original music video even though it's a bit silly. 5. Dark Chest of Wonders - Album version - 2 pts I have adored this song since the beginning and it always brings a smile to my face whenever I hear it. I love the orchestral bombast, guitars, choirs and Tarja's vocals. It's a perfect opener for an album or a concert. To me this is one of those signature Nightwish songs. 6. Last Ride of the Day - Imaginaerum movie premiere 2012 live - 2 pts This is such an epic and uplifting song. It always makes me feel euphoric and happy. To me it represents a modern classic and I think they should include it in every single setlist they play until the end of their career. I think these good vibes are especially well presented on this live version. 7. Dead Boy's Poem - From Wishes to Eternity Live - 2 pts One of the most beautiful songs ever. I don't know what else to say. They did it perfectly on From Wishes To Eternity. 8. Song of Myself - Album version - 1 pts Imaginaerum is probably my favourite Nightwish album and I think this song just sums the whole album perfectly. I may be a minority here but I also happen to love the poem in the end. As with The Poet And The Pendulum there are great live renditions available like the one from Wacken 2013 but I just prefer the original here. 9. Devil And The Deep Dark Ocean - Live at Lahti 2018 - 1 pts Devil And The Deep Dark Ocean was an awesome song to begin with but I think Floor's vocals made it even better. I still prefer Tapio's vocals to Marco's even though he got significantly better as the Decades tour went on. The song has aggression, mystique and darkness but also hopefulness in the end. I think the audio for this special video was recorded in Lahti last summer but visuals are gathered from various different concerts. 10. The Islander - Album version - 1 pts The Islander is one of my favourite songs by Nightwish but it also has the best music video they have ever made and it will probably stay that way if what Tuomas said about them not making any more music videos in the future holds true. It is a nice acoustic piece with folk elements and I think both Marco and Anette truly shine here. 11. Beauty of the Beast - 1 pts This is for me the first long epic I heard from Nightwish and even though I like Ghost Love Score and The Poet And The Pendulum more nowadays this one still has a place in my heart. To me it perfectly sums what the whole Century Child album is thematically and musically about. I tried to look for some nice live rendition for this one but actually couldn't find anything that would dethrone the album version. I wish they would play this again on one of their future tours. Some honorable mentions that could have also been on my list: Higher Than Hope The Greatest Show on Earth Dead To The World Alpenglow Stargazers Meadows of Heaven Sacrament of Wilderness Bless The Child The Kinslayer Some songs that probably could've never been on my list: White Night Fantasy Live To Tell The Tale Away For The Heart I Once Had Nymphomaniac Fantasia Bye Bye Beautiful Sagan The Carpenter

    The Old Era

    I have to agree. I found out about Nightwish back in 2003 or something. I listened through Oceanborn, Wishmaster and Century Child and I loved them. Once was actually a bit of a dissapointment after them for some reason and I was truly shocked after they fired Tarja. BUT Dark Passion Play was the album that healed me. It made me realise what I loved most about Nightwish in the first place. It was the melodies, the stories and the musicianship. That album kind of proved why they are so special and without DPP I think I wouldn't be listening to them anymore. My favourite albums from them are Oceanborn, Century Child and Imaginaerum but Dark Passion Play still has a special place in my heart.
