    I seem to be the only one who doesn't like their new generic approach. But then again, it's coming from someone who think they went downhill after Mother Earth and don't have any tracks worth mentioning since THOE. I thought Hydra was bad, but then I heard their most recent single. The overuse of dubstep and beats is just terrible.

    Ask Floor [OPEN]

    Hi Floor! My questions are: - Are there any songs on the Decades setlist that you find particularly challenging to sing? - Festival or venue? Which do you prefer? - Has becoming a mother inspired you as a songwriter? Has it influenced your creative mind? Last but not least, a less serious question: - Are you familiar with the Swedish term 'shuffla'?

    Words cannot describe how much I adore the new rendition of Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean. It was already amazing without the new elements and it honestly never occurred to me how much better it sounds without an operatic voice. The studio version is so haunting, yet Floor managed to elevate it to a completely different level. I truly am astonished. I'm also overjoyed that Wishmaster seems to have made it back into the setlist. I do hope it remains there.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    What about Beauty and the Beast? Awesome live track back in the days and I’d love to hear Floor tackle it.

    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

    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.

    She might get better with time, however there still are better song choices than Come Cover Me. Agreed. Also agreed.
  11. A Blessed Wish

    Decades World Tour 2018

    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.

    Make them play it with Floor! NOW!

    Decades World Tour 2018

    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.

    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.
