    Hmm, that is a good point. I'm not entirely convinced, but I suppose singing them for so long does make them "hers", in a way. Ah, ok. Maybe she only used NW songs while she was still building up her own collection of songs, then.

    A bit off topic, but doesn't anyone else find it weird that Tarja still performs NW songs? Given that 1) they did not part on good terms and 2) Tarja had, to my knowledge, zero part in creating those songs, it almost feels like stolen music now.

    Just found this gem on YouTube:

    If anyone missed supernova, I got that too (this is all I got though, I didn't record the whole show): The unreleased songs can't be uploaded to YouTube, they get instantly blocked in 248 countries

    Yeah I expected worse, given the previous. Still only "ok" though, nothing like older live recordings of it.

    She has serious trouble hitting higher notes, except when she switches to her different (classical?) voice. But yeah, those The Reckoning choruses were bad, and so is the current song (In the middle of the night). I'm not impressed with any of her singing so far, tbh.

    Children of Bodom

    I like it! It reminds me a lot of old CoB albums, in a good way. It's not a very daring / novel song musically, but the first single that anyone releases of an album is never the best or the most special, so this album might just be good.

    Wait, what? Did I miss something

    To me, the self titled album is boring. I actually stopped being a fan and pretty much thought I was done with Evanescence because of it. Synthesis (especially the live material) fixed that, but really... "Evanescence" lacks the emotion and passion that "Fallen" and "The Open Door" each have in their own way. It sounds much more catchy pop rock like, more generic. That's why of the songs that have a Synthesis version, I much prefer that version. "End of the Dream" for example, went from a pretty mediocre sounding song to something mind-blowing.

    How is Semblance of Liberty a filler? It's awesome, and not like any of the other songs.

    It was my first as well I was doubting about going to one of these shows, but I hate buying tickets for something that's so far (nearly a year) away

    I tried to screen cap the relevant fragments, but it turns out that tools that can record anything else will mysteriously stop working when you try to use them on a bluray playback. So here are a few quotes that I rewrote a little bit to make them more suitable for reading rather than hearing: "Why did I get my burnout now? Why did I not get overworked any time before? Because I've been working really hard for many years, and I always loved that. I even need a certain amount of pressure, and stress, and work. (...) What was different in the period before the burnout was that I started to do a lot of different kind of jobs. For example, I did the management and I became a teacher. I wanted to be a very good teacher, and I wanted to be a very good manager... I wanted to understand everything about the finances, and do the invoices and do... everything. I wanted to do a lot of things I'm not good at. Because I felt that I had to do it, noone else could do it better than me. I'm a huge perfectionist, so all those things that I was doing needed to be done perfectly. However, I'm a good singer, a good songwriter, a good performer... but I'm not a good manager." "If there's one thing I learned it's that there are a couple of things I'm really good at and there are a couple things I'm not good at, and I'll focus on the things I'm good at and try to let other people do the things I'm not good at, because they'll do it better, and I'll feel much better." Also, get the DVD, going through it again just now made me remember how great it is
