    Within Temptation II

    Quality is definitele consistent for me. In Vain is the weakest track for me, but other than that I either like or really like the rest of the songs. For now, I'm pretty happy with this album, despite some minor problems I have here and there.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I don’t think we can expect any news before the summer. Maybe just tidbits on when the summer camp will start and stuff like that. And maybe news for the dvd as well. Other than that, I think we’ll start getting news during the summer camps, maybe we’ll be getting trailers from the camp like they did with EFMB.

    After Forever

    I love this cover! And I only just realized that aside from Damian Wilson, it also features Arjen! Floor shines here!

    Delain

    Hunter’s Moon (the song) is now out. It’s kind of a more straightforward Delain song... except from the metalcore screams? It’s also a bit heavier at parts. I wouldn’t mind heavier Delain I think.

    After Forever

    Great performance! My Choice is one of my favourite AF songs, both metal and accoustic versions.
  6. Great idea! I will definitely leave my ranking sometime soon! I may have prefered only album versions though. I think it will be chaos with everyone posting different versions

    After Forever

    Only love for Marcela! I just wish they sung Follow in the Cry together with Laura. Laura is a superb operatic singer, but her most contemporary vocals lack something for me. Both are still great though! Random fact: Follow in the Cry and Sancta Terra have to be the two songs that have been sung by the most singers.

    Within Temptation II

    I finally listened to the album yesterday and I'm really enjoying it so far. Some songs took a few more spins to grow, even Endless War which I had already heard quite a few times when it "leaked", and is now one of my favourites. Supernova is my favourite for now. Fun, full of energy and great lyrics (yeah, yeah the chorus says Supernova too many times but what about "Like Thunder screaming out for a flash of lightning, stars are falling down for god's applause?) . The "supernova, supernova, supernova" part is killing me because it reminds me of sth and I just can't remeber what. Holy Ground is cool as well and Firelight which I considered really boring at first, has really grown on me. I even love the ohs which give it a mystical atmosphere. The guitar solo at the end is a gem. Mad World, Mercy Mirror, and Trophy Hunter are still growing but I like them as well. In Vain has to be the one I like the least, it kind of got boring. I love the choirs in Supernova and Endless War but I would have liked them to be a bit more clear (sth I would have liked for a few other parts of the album). I really like the album. For now I like it more than Hydra but only time will tell what place it will take in my ranking. BTW, the booklet has like a gazillion typos and mistakes in the lyrics. I meaaan, can they change their record label sometime soon?

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Goldfinger is definitely her worst cover and Darkness is definitely her best, closely followed by Supremacy and House of Wax. This three just seem like she took them more "serious" than Still of the Night and Poison which I think she was just having fun with.

    What are you watching?

    I gave up on Black Mirror after the first ep too But then I tried again and watched the rest and loved it! Not all episodes, mind you. But some are great! My absoluute favourite is Hated in the Nation (3X6) followed by USS Callister and San Junipero. I also liked hang the DJ and I really enjoyed the whole concept of Bandersnatch. Which episodes did you watch? I also loved The Haunting of Hill House. On paper, it seemed like a another family-moves-in-haunted-house story, and it is. But it just had something very unique and enjoyable.

    Ex Libris

    Sooo when the first part of Anne came out, I remember listening to it and actually liking it a lot. But I was not really in the mood so I only listened to it like twice and forgot about it. And today I went back to it, and wow I am blown away. I really liked Dianne in Xandria and I could never get into the previous Ex Libris albums, but this? This is gold! Her voice is perfect and the music is really melodic and powerful as well. Great job! I'll definitely listen to the second part which comes out in March!

    Within Temptation II

    Lol ok. We are gonna have the “Within Temptation sold out” conversation for the third album in a row. Great stuff

    Within Temptation II

    I find that, for me at least, ranking songs works probably a year after the release or something. Most of the times I love/hate some songs in the beginning which I end up hating/loving after some time has passed.

    *Secretly hoping they would make an Abba covers album before an original AD one.*

    MaYaN

    She’s been doing it for quite some time now. She used to growl a bit in a Devin Townsend song they played live with the Gentle Storm. She is really very versatile and an excellent singer.
