Best album ever!

I am aware that a number of fans are disappointed by the departure of former vocalist Tarja Turunen, but this new album is brilliant. It is just as dramatic and over the top as Once, but there is so much more variety: rock anthems like Amaranth and Bye Bye Beautiful, ballads like Eva, the folk-inspired Islander and celtic-inspired songs like Last of the Wilds and 7 Days to the Wolves, while The Poet and The Pendulum resembles a filmscore. The new singer Anette Olzon has a much more versatile voice than Tarja did and contrasts much better with Marco Hietala's male vocals. Tuomas (the keyboardist) even performs a decent death growl in Master Passion Greed. You cannot be a true symphonic metal fan and not like this album. This is truly a new highpoint in their career.


One of the best albums I have ever heard. Iv been listening to this album ever since it came out, and everytime i listen to it I have a new respect for the shear talent and passion put into it. It has totally taken over as my favorite album ever. Listen for yourself, this album would probably change your life :)
