I was not sure what to expect when I first listened to the song. But it is beautiful. I cannot wait for more from Tuomas!
A Scrooge fan becomes a new Tuomas fan
At first I was a little put off by the song's slow, repetitive beginning, but the melody is haunting and the textures are subtle but beautiful and it builds as the song progresses. The more I listened to it, the more I loved it, especially the bridge. I love the lyrics "all the strangers on your path, crossroads that lead us from home, the cooling hymns of soulful Yuletide hearth." (A little confusing but very poetic). I love the instrumental solo and the surprisingly light-hearted ending. The sounds of the traveling trunk opening and closing are a nice touch, too.
I'd never heard of Tuomas or Nightwish before, but I am a huge fan of the comics this album was based on. I can say the lyrics, while a little hard to understand in places, really speak for Scrooge's character. I'm looking forward to the rest of the album! Thanks, Tuomas and Johanna, and thank you, Mr. Rosa!
Listening, I was speechless.
Being the brains behind Nightwish, I expect a lot from Tuomas. He always delivers. Do not expect the Nightwish sound in this. He said to expect a style like Enya, but this is many times better. Relaxing, beautifully entrancing, and themed after something near and dear to me in my childhood. The fire still burns!
