    Nightwish Off Topic

    HOW HAD I NOT SEEN THIS BEFORE? It's from 2017, and I was already active here at that time, so could it be that it was never shared or it just went over my head, like...? Anyway, thanks, random Reddit user. There are some good and some better moments, very solid performances overall.

    Reaction videos (to music)

    I require constant confirmation because of various insecurities, and music - especially Nightwish - is a large part of my identity. Thus, when random reaction video #35976 praises Ghost Love Score and Floor, I'm really just feeding my own ego. It's wonderful. No, but I like the ones that put a bit of effort into the videos, review and analyze the songs. Just watching someone else listen to a song is obviously pointless. Now, I usually only watch the Nightwish ones, but there are exceptions. (I actually got into Delain thanks to a reaction video. Which I watched because it featured Marco. Unfamiliar is scary.) Since Nightwish is life, I love getting other people's opinions and perspectives on their songs. It can help broaden my own perspective. And of course, it's usually good publicity.

    I'm confused... Who's Tony, and where is said Instagram post...?

    Within Temptation II

    The other way around seems more likely. Unless they're opening for Nightwish, perhaps? (Wouldn't that be a dream come true? But nah, Nightwish's tours are too intense.) So the future of Within Temptation might be heavier focus on singles before albums, a more mainstream approach. Like Resist already did. I don't mind that, now that we know in advance. I can adapt too!

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    The first episode of making Endless Forms Most Beautiful, "The Cabin", is love. I'd like them to do video reports like that again, but perhaps fewer, but lengthier, episodes. Either way, when I say "tidbit", I mean it. Any band member saying they're really happy with the pre-chorus of what might be the fourth track of the new album would be enough to get me going. For a while. Though I guess they haven't done interviews in a while, and Tuomas hasn't unveiled the new songs yet, if things are going according to plan.

    Dreams about Nightwish

    So, last night I had a dream... that Troy was quitting the band, to battle a returning alcoholism. (I'm so sorry.) I read about it in a Facebook post, and then I cried. Can't remember much else. Glad it was just a dream, though.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Feels like it's been quiet for a long time now... Just a tiny tidbit of new information would be cool...

    Within Temptation II

    One week down the road, I find myself listening to the album at times. Not hype-listening every day, but then again it's quite an easily digestible album, so I wasn't expecting it to take several days to take everything in. The Reckoning - wasn't really that interesting in the first place. I'll play it if I'm doing the whole album. Endless War - I've chosen to use it for my upcoming audition, so I'm somewhat fed up at the moment after making my own instrumental backing track, and then practicing. But I'll start playing it more eventually. Raise Your Banner - Solid. Still playing it if I'm cooking, cleaning... Supernova - Only when I'm playing the whole album, really. Holy Ground - has grown, as expected. Before, I found myself waking up two days in a row with the choir stuck in my head. Like it a lot. In Vain - I don't skip it, but I don't play it specifically. Weakest track. Firelight - Resting a bit, until the sense of novelty with the other songs goes away. Mad World - Still a lot of fun. One of my favorites. Mercy Mirror - Same situation as Supernova. I like it, but I don't like everything about how it sounds, so it's not getting played that much. Trophy Hunter - Oh, yeah. This one has grown too, as expected. It's not perfect, could have been longer, but it's still a throwback to The Heart of Everything, which was the album that started it all for me, so...

    Within Temptation II

    Woo! We have finished our double listening session! First the regular album, immediately followed by the instrumental versions, just because we could! (I'd like to believe I won my brother over there, he hasn't taken interest in instrumentals previously.) This is the first time we've done something like this, and it was definitely a fun experience. Unfortunately a one-off, I think. NeoGeorg's official thoughts and opinions on Resist Songs I had heard prior to today: The Reckoning (Single, and live), Endless War (Live), Raise Your Banner (Single, and live), Supernova (Live), Firelight (Single), Mercy Mirror (Live). I haven't really looked into the lyrics much, but when it comes to Within Temptation it has always been music first for me. The Reckoning Endless War Raise Your Banner Supernova Holy Ground In Vain Firelight Mad World Mercy Mirror Trophy Hunter Overall, Resist exceeded expectations for us both. Speaking for myself, it sometimes did so in unexpected ways, which is fun. I already know it's more solid than Hydra - Resist's best parts are on par with Hydra's best, while the worst parts are better than Hydra's worst, yeah. Apart from that it's hard to compare Within Temptation's albums to each other, as the band keeps evolving their sound, as per their aspiration to. They never cease to surprise me, and I admire them for it!

    Within Temptation II

    The album is so polarizing! I LOVE IT! I'll finally listen, in about an hour, but I'm probably more excited to hear what my brother, who's a real Silent Force-era fan, thinks.

    Within Temptation II

    The instrumental Raise Your Banner really made me appreciate the song even more. There is a lot going on under the vocals that you don't hear, and it feels very polished.

    Within Temptation II

    So, are all concerns about the sound possibly being somewhat too commercial... no more?

    Within Temptation II

    Wow! It's now Friday here, and the album is out! Spotify has the "Extended Deluxe" version, which includes the regular tracks, the single edits, and the instrumentals, all in one! That's unexpected, but much appreciated! I'm not listening to anything new until Monday, of course, but I can already enjoy the instrumental versions of The Reckoning, Raise Your Banner and Firelight!

    Within Temptation II

    I kinda wanted to see if the "best" songs are the ones we've already heard either as singles or live... and it seems there's some truth to that, hahaaa... I probably won't rank the songs myself. I find that doing that has gotten harder over the years, but we'll see.
