  1. I highly doubt it. I can only hear a replica of Floor's awkward semitoned TELL ME WHY in Slaying the Dreamer when I try to imagine her singing the chorus. And about Wishmaster, I would replace Nemo or WIHAA with it any day. While it's not one of their strongest songs, it's certainly much more interesting than the celtic Evanescence wannabe and the drunken hook up theme.
  2. Yes, it seems so. I quite fancy this dress actually. And about the actual performance, this is certainly the best version of Slaying the Dreamer in my humble opinion. I simply wished they would slightly raise the volume of Floor's microphone so that we actually get to hear her growling alongside Marco.
  3. I absolutely adore this new arrangement of Deep Silent Complete, however I must agree with some others here. It needs more classical vocals! I'm not saying the whole song should be sung in Floor's head voice (the verses and the bridge sound perfect), but I do think that the chorus could use a more operatic approach. It just sounds weird without it. Same with Gethsemane. I love the new arrangement, but it just needs a slightly more operatic approach in the verses for example. I know that Floor could do it, but it seems that she is purposely omitting it.
  4. What about Beauty and the Beast? Awesome live track back in the days and I’d love to hear Floor tackle it.
  5. Should they not immortalise this tour and this set list on a live DVD I don’t think I would be able to forgive them. Especially since I doubt I’ll be able to attend the show in Gothenburg in November. It’s on the other side of the country plus I’m an indigent student on a tight budget
  6. I would like Ghost Love Score to be replaced with Beauty of the Beast, however I suppose I’m in a trivial minority thinking this. Would also rather Whoever Brings the Night took Wish I Had an Angel’s spot, that way all albums would be covered.
  7. She might get better with time, however there still are better song choices than Come Cover Me. Agreed. Also agreed.
  8. Agreed. Floor is simply too rough for Come Cover Me, however I think she would own Deep Silent Complete. THIS! Exactly, that’s why I don’t like the new orchestration for 10th Man Down. I’m fine with them replacing Tuomas’s synths with an orchestra (not really but still), however the film score thing going on was just totally unnecessary. Floor’s vocals was perfect though, especially the ‘They wait for me back home/The live with eyes turned away...’ part. That was pure gold.
  9. Make them play it with Floor! NOW!
  10. Dragon Ball Super, what else?
  11. I have a very (VERY) soft spot for Wishmaster era Tarja so I have to disagree ravingly. I can agree on this though. Edit: Btw does anybody happen to have a video of Come Cover Me from any of the shows this year? I can't find it anywhere.
  12. This must be the best Dead Boy's Poem performance ever, well after the studio version and the From Wishes to Eternity performance that is. I really appreciate that Floor did her own approach to this song, instead of just trying to mimic Tarja. It would probably sound weird with Floor's classical voice. However it simply isn't on the same level as the studio version (which is unsurpassable in my opinion), but I would definitely compare it to Floor's version of Ghost Love Score.
  13. @Imagineer Simone wasn't good to begin with live, but now seems worse than ever. She can't maintain her head voice for a very long time and she appears to be dodging high notes whenever she is singing in her chest voice.
  14. Actually, if I'm not mistaken, it's a male choir in the back. Regardless, I think Floor did an excellent job on this one.
  15. I agree. It just doesn't fit the song. This arrangement more or less ruins the atmosphere of 10th Man Down. I do think they work quite well with songs like Dead Boy's Poem and Gethsemane though. The new arrangement of Devil & the Deep Dark Ocean is rather interesting as well.
