    The Old Era

    This is scarily similar to how I discovered NW - back in 2003 too. I was also using Limewire and the music file I downloaded must've been incorrectly labelled, and it happened to be She Is My Sin. I was instantly captivated. It took me SO long to get over Tarja's firing, and it took me a good old of years to actually accept Anette. I NEVER once thought she was a bad singer at all, but I guess I was still "mourning". All the singers have brought such great variety to the music.

    Your Nightwish collection

    I have WAY too much but these are my most prized possessions - Passion And The Opera & The Kinslayer promo CDs
  3. Holy Moly, this would be awesome! My wish list would totally have: - The Riddler - Bare Grace Misery - Wanderlust - Crownless - Live To Tell The Tale - Astral Romance!!! - Nightquest

    Within Temptation II

    Yeah it's terrible. It was even bad back in 2000. It's a shame because the song is so awesome.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    I really enjoyed it. They've played Wishmaster live so often in the past, it's great to have a new twist to it.

    Tarja Turunen pt. II

    Is it just my copy, or does the booklet that comes with the CD missing some lyrics (every other song)... it also has some blank pages with nothing on them where the missing track lyrics could have slotted in. I don't have the lyrics printed for: No Bitter End, Eagle Eye, Witch-Hunt, House Of Wax, or Paradise. As others have already stated, the photos used weren't nearly as good as ones used for the countdown images, and the booklets also contains some spelling mistakes. I know it all sounds like minor niggles and that it's only a prequel album, but all the small things add up and just makes the whole thing feel so unpolished. Meh, I dunno. Just feel a bit disappointed. I hope the Shadow Self bring a lot more to the table.

    Tarja Turunen pt. II

    I don't know what it is about Tarja's albums, but there's just something off. I don't like the sound of the guitars and the mixing doesn't sound...right. I dunno. It might just be me. I try so hard to like her music, and don't get me wrong, she has some great songs, but a lot of tracks just seem like filler to me.

    Anette Olzon

    This is an awful thing to happen. The worst part is the the feeling of worry, fear and anxiety after the incident. Hope she recovers quickly

    Official Artwork

    I've always thought that Highest Hopes art is absolutely beautiful, however I do have a soft spot for Swampborn.

    Nightwish Confessions

    THIS! It makes me somewhat cringe when it's sung. Also, I confess that I'm quite competitive when it comes to merchandise collecting.... :wild: And, I confess that I'm not as involved with the fan base as I should be. Back in 2004, I used to use the forum all the time obsessively. I should start making more of an effort again. Sounds like a good new year's resolution to me. lol

    Your favourite Nightwish lyrics

    I could go on all day, but these are a few lines that really stick out for me: "The days were brighter, gardens more blooming. The nights had more hope in their silence" "You think you dwell in wisdom's sea, still, sweet ignorance is the key" "Just a child without a fairytale, am I dark but so lovely" "There`s no such priest that can pray me to heaven. When done with me, forget if you think I feel ashamed" "Princess of lust, Dignity put to dust, A virginal sight, Their apple to bite" "Forget the task, enjoy the ride and follow us into the night" .....And the whole of Astral Romanace, and Escapist.

    Official Artwork

    By far, my favourite cover artwork is Highest Hopes. It's a simple design, but really emotive. Also, in most cases, I prefer the Drakkar cover versions of the albums, especially Swampborn. Lol.

    Kiitos Carol! I'll enjoy singing this in the shower tomorrow

    I reeeeally want to find the correct lyrics to THAPF. Most of the websites I've looked at are WAY out. I really like it, but I expected it to be different somehow.

    Imaginaerum World Tour 2012-2013

    Agreed! Seriously over played. I'm so gutted they dropped Escapist and DCoW (even though I can understand why) and disappointed that Ghost River and Rest Calm didn't make the list! I really hope this changes by the time they get to the UK...
