    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Act II is gonna be better because she has better material, specially the post CITD concert (I think the latest ep and album are her worst by far).

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    She does sound like a whale some times. This is not one of those times. She's at the top of her game.

    There's a video on her page. Pretty Iffy but still, can't fault her for being out of practice. She seemed hapy though, that's what matters the most.

    I think Elan is cute but that's it. Not worth it to be passionate about.. I really dislike the guitar in the whole song before the key change. It's that boring 80's chugga chugga that adds nothing to lots of modern NW songs. I don't know why but it sounds much better post key change. The whole song should have been like that.

    The Setlist is OK except for Elan, IWMTB and Amaranth. Should have left the good ones they took out instead of them. Also, yes, Wishmaster. WOO Tapio. In for The Pharaoh.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    As expected, the production is fantastic. Where are the people doubting that now? Nightwish wishes it had a live album sounding half as good. She also looks extremely gorgeus, like, damn, Tarja.

    The Floor thread

    No offense but is this post kind of bad joke? It adds nothing to the discussion and trivializes a person's feelings.

    The Floor thread

    Thank you for the translation! I found her statements understandable. She's of the the finest singers in the world, she clearly deserves more recognition. And it's not about "being a diva", let me introduce you to the Masglow Pyramid, the hierarchy of humand needs: Every person goes through this and it's quite obvious she's reached the time in her life when she's on ther second to last floor (ha). That's actually quite great, as most people don't get beyond the second or third floor, but the feeling she's having is 100% natural and real. Hopefully the next album is killer and takes the world by storm. But you know, Nuclear Blast.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Both of Tarja's live albums, specially Beauty and the Beat have featured pristine production.

    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    While Nightwish is happy churning out horribly produced live videos and hiring Vile Hillipainen to "film" their stuff, Tarja on a much smaller budget and truth to be told with lesser material to work with is gonna release a well directed live show where every visual design is gonna complement the music. Shameful really.

    Yeah but just for fun it seems. The Dark Element is already on the way to the 2nd album and that's really exciting.

    Aaaand the Kinslayer was topical again yesterday... Sigh.

    Told in the most boring, bland, predictable way possible. It's like listening to cosmos.

    Decades World Tour 2018

    That's not an uncommon view to artists actually. You'll find that opinion in almost every medium for every art out there (e.g. Edgar Alan Poe's famous work were the ones he wrote when suicidal). I don't think everything's lost however, Imaginaerum had amazing lyrics, so did Scrooge and the Auri songs from Tuomas are still very good. It's how he turned NW into a soundtrack machine for Cosmos what ruined the spirit. In my opinion. Who knows, maybe he'll get over his 40's mortality crisis and go back to being sentimental.
