  1. Na ja, die Remasters zu Angels Fall First waren eher sowas wie ein Re-Release mit Bonus Material. Der Begriff Remaster ist an sich nichtssagend, es gibt genauso gute wie schlechte (oder weder noch). Was die Decades jetzt konkret absetzt ist, dass einfach gute Arbeit bei den Remasters geleistet wurde. Die Tracks sind um einiges dynamischer, die ganzen Clipping- und Limiting-Artefakte sind nicht mehr drin und der Mix klingt etwas ausgeglichener. ___Achte doch Mal auf folgende Dinge: . Klarheit der Instrumente (besonders das SCHLAGZEUG; v.a. an lauten Stellen; z.B. Anfang von End of All Hope oder Storytime wenn die ersten Schläge einsetzen) . Räumliche Wirkung des Klangs (z.B. offener Klang? eher gedrückt?, etc.) . Im Vergleich: was klingt natürlicher, was klingt angenehmer auch bei höheren Lautstärken Im Idealfall das ganze mit *Kopfhörern* … Ist ein wenig wie mit der roten und blauen Pille bei Matrix; sobald der Groschen fällt bist du dankbar für den Decades-Release …
  2. Wer den Unterschied zwischen den Remasters und den Originalaufnahmen nicht hört, sollte sich mal durchchecken lassen; die Tracks der Decades haben klangtechnisch eindeutig die Nase vorne.
  3. Misery is overrated, it only connects with those who are already sad or just want to be so. I find it great, that Holopainen finally seems to be genuinely happy with what he does, I would not want him to just go on a sad, self-pitying trip just to please a margin of fans; like either was possible anyway. I found EMFB’s lyrics to be no bit less genuine than those of any other album; for all the cheesiness some people see in them (like that was always bad) they’re atleast nowhere near the Century-Child-level of cheesy.
  4. You love hating it so much, it’s almost funny
  5. I did not claim that
  6. Such nonsense, you don’t have to be a cynical piece of **** to create something worthwhile. No swearing words outside the Speaker's Corner. -Damián.
  7. I liked his approach, and I like to think it is not as bad as some people here claim, not by a longshot
  8. No offence but isn’t that quite a lot of an effort just to state your dislike of a single song?
  9. Not entirely sure whether “Moonglow” is not too much on the cheesy side for an album title.
  10. What they *should* try is Escapist. They could give their b-sides a little more love to be honest; especially since they were not conceived as b-sides but chosen to be such due to the limited run-time of a CD.
  11. Might be because that particular song is not that great to begin with …
  12. Drama just seems to kind of follow them. If it were not for this particular band, releasing an instrumental version of an album as a bonus disc would be as much of a no-brainer as you could imagine. FFS, how can anyone actually get worked up over something like this? At least it is funny, that the fans are not the only ones who get a little salty from time to time…
  13. Such a shame, I really dig the instrumental (and orchestral) versions of their songs. I found Once to be much more appealing in its instrumental version (you know, it is on YouTube, even in good enough quality, but it is just not the same as to have the tracks on a CD in lossless format). You never saw the other vocalists complain about the release of instrumental versions and it makes sense, given the movie score vibe of the music and the rich orchestrations. FFS, why does anyone care so much about a 14 year old album? They have the rights to release it though, i think; if her vocals are not involved and since she did not write a single note for the album, I cannot say how they would make a case against a re-release. Anyway, if they ever do release it, and I strongly hope they do, I will be the first one to buy it, honestly.
  14. I find that booklet to be rather uninspired, you can even find a few compression artifacts in the album covers as presented on the last few pages. They could have released some old band photos or, you know, type down the lyrics, or, even better, show alternative cover artworks or something like that. The foreword is nice and all that, but the rest really does not do it for me. Buying the earbook does not really pay off, except maybe that it looks really neat in a shelf.
  15. To be fair, they never fired him and to be honest I don’t think it’s the drumming that gets people so excited for the music of Nightwish. I find the latter statement to be kind of inappropriate, but to each their own
