    Is it bad if I say that I liked this album more than anything she has done in Nightwish? I'm totally obsessed with this album, loved every single song, it's refreshing to hear something like this from Floor. So bad this is just a project.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    It's what we were telling you all these years, YouTube videos of her don't make her justice AT ALL. Thank God now you believe us. I'm so happy you like it, her stage presence is amazing, you can't stop smiling, she shares so much happiness

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I think her biggest mistake was to realese something that was recorded 2 years ago, you can see her improvement nowadays even if it's just a little bit, she definitely sings better now compared to those live shows. Haven't watched them though I can only judge live videos have been shared so far.
  4. I did know some of the things he said but regarding religion and science it's interesting to read what he thought back then. What amazed me is how honest he is with himself, it seems that he hasn't changed his thoughts that much through years, everything he said about Donald and religion and science is printed in his music and I just find it fascinating. Thanks a lot

    It was in UK, she shared this: I just received happy news from my label earMUSIC that my “Act II” is nr. 4 in the Music Video UK Official Charts, and nr. 1 in the sub-category Music Blu-Ray!! I feel UK closer and closer. Thank you so much all my fans and listeners in UK! I am thrilled.

    Back to the topic guys. There are special threads for EFMB and old albums on the Nightwish section.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    In an imaginary world if Tarja returns to Nightwish she would be very unhappy because she just tasted creativity freedom and her ideas compared with what Nightwish is doing now is completely opposite. If Nightwish's music worked with her in the past was because Tuomas and her had this sort of connection between them, Tuomas was a very depressive guy and Tarja enjoyed singing very sad songs, it was the perfect match but now, checking EFMB lyrics I don't think there's a click between Tarja and Nightwish music, perhaps in another world where Tarja and Nightwish never split, the coming albums would have been something completely different but we'll never know, we can just guess, though if you ask me, I'm pretty sure Nightwish would have done something completely different if Tarja would continue with the band, I'm not part of the group that says Tarja would stop Nightwish evolution, I truly believe together they would have developed something unique due to Tarja was (and still is) constantly changing and experimenting with her vocals, Tuomas would have fun a lot with her.

    The Old Era

    No matter how much you like or support Anette, there's a true fact, her live performances were very inconsistents. In think at first people dislike her for the sake of not being operatic but after saw her first live performances this became the main reason, of course we cannot blame completely Anette on this, you just don't put a singer like her singing on the right key songs like Slaying the dreamer or Wishmaster, they risked her voice but then Anette thought as well she was ok with her technique. Not knowing her instrument made her live performances hard to watch, she was always able to manage the soft songs but on the rockish ones or the very demanding ones she failed, they did a lot of arrangements to fit the music to her voice and her enthusiasim was declining with every critic to the point not be able to see that actually she had to take singing lessons not because she's bad but to improve and here is where I put part of guilty on her, I really think Anette is the type of person that is stubborn as hell, and she was very determined to not take any singing lessons and keep her poppy style to demonstrate to metal fandom that she doesn't need that type of help or that a ''pop'' singer (because she called herself like that) a pop singer was able to sing in metal without being rockish or having a lyrical sound, but she demonstrated quite the opposite, I think these were the reasons why people was not convinced with her until Imaginaeru came out and you cannot deny it, people really loved her (including myself) although her live performances were not as good as we wanted she was improved and when she saw the support she changed a lot her mindset, she was dressing more seriously, she was happy, she was trully commit herself to bring the best but then it happened what happened, now her tecnique or voice weren't the issue but her confidence when the guys said ''Floor Jansen'' for the first time. Anette is a roller coaster of emotions and that was her true enemy at the end.

    The Old Era

    But that's precisely an emotional reason, at the moment they said they were looking for someone with a different voice and someone whom could get alone, everything was based on what they experienced with Tarja. I'm not saying they didn't care at all of singing of course they did, NW songs are pretty vocally demanding but it wasn't a priority, they wanted someone who sings decently plus a good personality which was actually what they chose. They didn't research deeply if the singer had touring experience, if she had a singing studies, it was a job application basically, Anette only shared her strong desire to be the singer and they took her enthusiasm as a good sign. But of course, no one will ever know with certainty what would have happened if they would have hired a more prepared singer, which ends in what I said before: Anette had everything to be a great singer for Nightwish but her enthusiasm was replaced with this endless war with the metal fandom. @Ahasveruswho was that girl?

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    I think she is just experimenting with her voice I don't think she is doing this without any purpose to be honest, she is very demanding with herself and I truly believe her rock concerts are taken as a ''practice moments'' that's why you hear the same song sang different every time, she is very smart, I saw that video a while ago and it's clearly she has a goal to reach but for her type of voice I'm assuming is taking time, basically sort of ''try/error'' process to find what's the best for her and at the end she will find how properly sing and doing the changes without sounding weird. Buuut as a fan of her I really love how she sounds, her pronunciation didn't bother me like some others and I don't have a well trained ear so I really don't notices those stretches sounds or failed technique, she sounds really pleasant to my ears.
