Bless the Child is the second single from Nightwish's Century Child album. The single includes an edited version of "Bless the Child," and if you're used to the album version of the song, this version will seem incredibly weak and just downright wrong. So, when it comes to this song, I'd skip the single version and just go for the full version on the Century Child album. However, this single offers two amazing B-sides: "Lagoon" and "The Wayfarer."
Of the two, "Lagoon" stands out. "Lagoon" is a beautiful, atmospheric song that takes the listener on a spellbinding journey that's almost hypnotic. Easily, one of the best songs Nightwish has ever produced, "Lagoon" is worth the price of this single -seriously, this is a must-have for any Nightwish fan.
As for "The Wayfarer," it's not nearly as good, but still manages to be interesting. I wouldn't say this is an essential, but if you're one of those fans that needs to have every piece of music a band creates, than you have to get your hands on "The Wayfarer."
