I purchased this cd/dvd a few weeks ago. It is a Dual-Disc from Drakkar records. The Audio side has Sleeping Sun (old version), Walking In The Air, Swanheart and Angels Fall First. It is the same track listing as the original Sleeping Sun (4 Ballads of the Eclipse). But the real treat is the dvd side with the original Sleeping Sun video with Tarja in that red dress. Then with Walking In the Air and Swanheart live. The dvd side videos are very clear and shows the band when they were starting to have real success.

If you get a chance to purchase this, I would highly recommend buying it.

The Nightwish Ballads July 14 2004
By venome - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Sleeping Sun" contains four ballads and to my opinion, the best ballads that Nightwish has recorded. The EP opens with the single "Sleeping Sun", a gentle, calm but beautiful song. The second song is my personal favourite: "Walking In The Air". It is so dreamy and really makes you want to 'walk in the air'. The thirth song is "Swanheart", a very emotional piano-ballad which shows that Tarja really can sing. The last song is "Angels Fall First", taken from the debutalbum which has the same name. This is the most emotional song on the EP, it's simple but very beautiful.
All of the songs on this EP can be found on other Nightwish-albums but it's still worth buying it (especially for fans), because it's a good album if you're in the mood for something calm and emotional. It's not just a random collection of soft and regular slow song, but a great selection of Nightwish's best ballads!

The ballads of Nightwish July 17 2000
By "brooch" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is great CD! This includes the ballads of Nightwish. I think that "Sleeping Sun" is the best song of Nightwish. I love the lyrics and the way Tarja sings. Music is wonderful too! "Walking in the Air" is great song too, but because it comes after breath-taking "Sleeping Sun"... It doesn't sound so very good. "Swanheart" is so beautiful song that tears come to my eye... Music is great, so are the lyrics. What about "Angels Fall First"? Those lyrics make me cry more when you think about them a lot. Music is beautiful and in this song Tarja sings quite high and it sound some parts a little like... too high? If you hate heavy metal music (Nightwish is a heavy metal band) and that's why you don't like Nightwish, then you still should listen to these songs because these aren't like the others!

We cannot live by metal alone Jan. 7 2003
By Kieri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Nightwish is known for the wild guitars and keyboards, and Tarja operatically screaming out the vocals. But in the shuffle, the ballads tend to be forgotten, which is a shame, because they are truly beautiful. Here, it is Tarja's flawless voice that is showcased, accompanied by the dreamy, floating rhythms of songs such as "Swanheart."
I would highly recommend this CD to ANY Nightwish fan.

This is amazing... Jan. 8 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well, NIGHTWISH... I know that THERION rules, but Tarja's vocal makes me freezing, brrrrrrr, this sounds powerful, but gently, I don't know, there's something that cannot be described. Something... OK, it's better for You to make Your own opinion. You won't be sorry!
