  • Musical Dislikes (Songs, Bands etc)
    I'm not much for "urban music" - jazz, rap, R'n'B etc. Also most mainstream Swedish radio pop.
  1. I had no idea tickets had gone on sale already, so I'm glad I check in here every day to remind me. We decided to go seated this time. Gothenburg's Partille Arena is pretty new and is supposed to have great sound, so high hopes there. I hope the seats we got are good... I'm going. My brother's going. Mom is going. My sister is (most likely) going. And then we can all say "Decades Tour - we were there!" And it's not even two weeks after Within Temptation's show in Stockholm. It feels wrong to long for something so far away...
  2. I showed the tour poster to my brother yesterday, he replied with excited smiley faces. Today I mentioned the tickets go on sale this Friday already, and his response was "Buy, buy, buy...!" So I guess we're going to Stockholm in about 11 months. Now their upcoming album really better be good, but it will be nice seeing them again anyhow.
  3. The album is very good. A few songs are uninteresting at worst. The best tracks are (somewhat unfortunately, but expectedly) the first three singles, (which are really good) as well as The Ghost and the Reaper. Its middle part reminds me of old Nightwish, of something that EFMB lacked, that build-up of a certain atmosphere and then daring to hang onto it for a while... Sort of. I'll likely skip the ballads because the cheesy lyrics and Anette's accent are more prominent. Accent's not her fault, I just find it too distracting for my Swedish ears. (Skeen?) I will keep listening to this!
  4. There is a nice little teaser posted on Troy's official Facebook page. Seems to confirm that there will be ambient stuff on the album, which I guess pretty much everyone already expected anyway.
  5. Their whole website has now been replaced with the same "coming soon..." message, which is somewhat reassuring. I would bet on new album information now.
  6. From the official Facebook page: "official statement Sharon den Adel coming soon..." Something's going on, and soon we'll know what. Good/bad?
  7. No one acknowledging that Sharon gradually posted potential new song lyrics then...? "I calll what we have indigo ..... Unclear what we are, but what we know Though you never take my hand even when I raise your shipwreck from the sand... #changes #music #purple #silence #truecolours #notwhatyouthink" She made the three "l"'s typo three times. If it is a typo. Either way, I like it.
  8. OH, COME ON! You can't share something like that without providing a source (if possible) or at least the name of the station!
  9. It's ok, but quite bland compared to the other two. That was to be expected. Just hoping we haven't already heard all the good stuff, and that the rest of the album will have some non-traditionally structured, less single friendly songs too. I have no idea what this Liimatainen has done in the past.
  10. I could have said this. While a few earlier songs caught my interest at first, it was Dark Passion Play that really kickstarted my career as a Nightwish fan. Also the first album I ever bought. (The Tour Edition.) Of course, the 12 year old me only listened to the singles, basically. Ballads were boring, and how could anyone ever want to listen to a 14 minute song? If I could time travel I'd go back and slap myself. I do however forgive myself for thinking Marco was Tuomas and vice versa. Either way, it's a very important album to me, and I'm way less critical towards it than what seems to be common opinion. Probably because I was too young to really understand it. But I like all the songs. Meadows of Heaven happens to be the most emotionally significant song I know.
  11. The intro is basically Storytime... But it's really catchy and energizing, and better than The Dark Element. My expectations for the rest of the album have went up further.
  12. So I was hoping for an announcement today, but it doesn't seem to be happening... I'll just keep expecting the unexpected, whatever it is I'm not expecting.
  13. It's actually a very OK song. I've listened a few times.
  14. So what's this about the nose surgery she's had just now? She's hoping to be able to breathe and sing better, so is it possibly a big deal career-wise? I never knew she had any issues, but how great for her if it's an improvement to quality of life.
  15. It's a short snippet, but I hear potential. I really hope she won't sing in Swenglish again...! Her accent was noticeable with Nightwish, but on Shine it was a bit too much for my Swedish ears... Maybe I'm over-exaggerating. Tarja also has a noticeable accent, but I still enjoy her solo work a lot, because the music is more my taste. Seems like that will be the case with this album as well. As opposed to Shine, I mean.
