Well, here we have a moron that has no idea what he is talking about . Read the review of that "music fan" from Hamptom GA and that doesn't even have the guts to say who he is. Now check out that review written by this ignorant just under this one.
Well mr music fan, I don't know personally any of the members of Nightwish (I'd love to know them by the way, specially Tarja) but led me tell say!!!!! You are so stupid that is easy to understand that you haven't heard the album!!!. You don't mention anything about Nightwish. You don't mention any of the musicians. You don't mention Emppu, or Jukka or Sammy or Toumas and you mention a "good opera voice" but you don't mention Tarja. Admit it moron, you heard the sample. And maybe only one. You say that you can't mix a good metal band and a good opera singer? Ok now I ask you... WHY? Why not? What do you know about metal? Metallica and Iron Maiden? Only by name. Slipknot? don't make me laugh. Nightwish is great. The reviewers are mostly mature people and not teenagers. You know what. I'm 18 and finishing my senior year and I'm moving after the summer with my own money earned by my own (you know what else? I'm hispanic and I'm an immigrant and legal.). People that tell us their children like Nightwish write reviews here so don't talk crap. I doubt there is anyone that write reviews here that knows any of the members of Nightwsh. Maybe one or two have seen them live but that's it. Nightwish is a great band. The guitar is great, the Piano, everything is great and you just don't know anything and you don't know the way Nightwish sounds because in your review you didn't write anything about the band. Opera voice and Metal music is like putting shrimp in a milkshake? I don't think so moron. Who says that? you?

I wasn't expecting this. I hadn't heard of Nightwish anywhere before and just happened to be browsing through links from other bands I like when I happened to read a review of this album and it mentioned that Nightwish had an operetic female singer. Being a huge fan of the mixture of classical and metal I figured this might work, so I bought Oceanborn and Wishmaster.
I can't begin to recommend this album enough. But first a warning, if you're into hard, head banging metal and that's the only way for you, don't bother buying this. These songs are about mood and atmosphere not energy and raw agression. Although I have received "you're crazy" looks from non-metal fans for saying it, the only real way to describe this music adequately is to call it hauntingly beautiful. Tarja's vocals are mind blowing. They are inspiring, powerful, serene, intense, majestic, haunting & clear all in one. It's not something that can be described, it's something that has to be heard. If the opening track "Stargazers" doesn't awe you the first time you hear it, I don't know what will.
What is amazing in this album is that there is a great variety of song styles. No two songs sound anything alike, yet it all blends together perfectly natural as an album. From the opening track which has a majestic, fast tempo to it, to the soft and serene "Swanheart" to the powerful and aggeresive "The Pharoah Sails to Orion" and ending with a haunting "Walking in the Air", there is not one bad song here.
If I have to find something to complain about it is that the male vocals on two songs (narratives) take some getting used too.

Oceanborn, the second album from Finnish symphonic/Goth metal/power prog band Nightwish is distinctly different from other bands in this B&B (Beauty & Beast) genre.
It still boasts occasional riffing and drum beats in triple time. And there are still the odd growling male vocals (only on a couple of tracks, however). And the de rigueur juxtaposition of metal guitars with orchestration and synths accompanied by a crystal-clear operatic female vocal (from Tarja Turunen) is still the banner under which Nightwish proudly marches.
But whereas other Beauty & Beast/Goth metal bands (such as the dismal The Sins of Thy Beloved, or the aptly named Theater of Tragedy) wallow in the mire of doom and gloom, Nightwish takes the high road. Most of the songs are extremely upbeat, lively and seem to be full of -- dare I say it? -- joy.
Another difference is the presence of guitar solos. Many bands in this genre (even my beloved After Forever) eschew guitar solos for one reason or another, but Nightwish sprinkles their bombastic songs with an occasional fretboard flurry that ratchets up the excitment level a notch or two. Tastefully done.
The CD starts with a bang -- "Stargazers" -- and takes the listener on a brisk, but enjoyable, ride. This track has more in common with progressive rock's grandeur and majesty than it does with European Goth/symphonic metal. This is a great song, the perfect album opener. Lots of power and Dream Theater-like fast guitar/keyboard runs. (I love that synth change-up at 3:20 into the song!)
Some songs on Oceanborn are slower than others, and a flute plays a key role in a few (the beautiful "Swanheart," for one). But all are nicely done and worthy of repeated listenings.
