Better Believe What You Hear Sept. 16 2007
By Richard G. Hoff - Published on
Format: Audio CD
What a Great CD. There are two versions of this cd out for sale. I got both of them on one CD for just one simple price from Metal Haven in Chicago, IL. This Mini Single (that I have) gives you the original Amaranth, Orchestrational, Demo. Plus as a special bonus of "While Your Lips Are Still Red." This Mini CD packs a good punch. Starting with Amaranth, this gives you a good sound of what the album should sound like with a new vocalist. I don't know her name, but I'm sure when the Dark Passion Plays comes out I'll know it then. This song could have been a left over from Once. It's in the same vein as that album was taken. When I first heard it, it reminded me of the song "Nemo", it gives off the feeling of searching for a name and then found it. Then you have REACH. This is a demo version, this is the name that Amaranth was to have. This has Marco singing on it. To me, this seems like a duet song live, it should be. Then you have EVA the Orchestral Version. No singing just the Orchestra playing. Then WHILE YOUR LIPS ARE STILL RED. Thankfully I didn't have to search the ends of the seas for this song. Then on CD2 you have the original AMARANTH, the orchestal version of AMARANTH and then the demo version of EVA. The EVA demo version has Marco singing again. I wonder if Tuomas was thinking about releasing this album with Marco singing if they couldn't find a replacement for Tarja. If you've heard Tarot, Marco's band you gte the idea of his voice. If Amaranth is what is to come on Dark Passion Play I just can't wait. I believe that I will enjoy Dark Passion Play compared to the Once album.

Nightwish Amaranth and more treats Jan. 25 2009
By R. L. Austin - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I have been a long-time Nightwish fan and a singles release 'addict'. While one has the wonderful delivery of a full album, with the luck sometimes of a 'concept' flow, singles releases give us a slightly different view of an artist's approach to their craft with some angular variations on what we might typically hear. In this case we have the upbeat, almost mainstream sound of 'Amaranth' with the new vocalist Anette who might actually draw a new fan base of those otherwise put off by the former symphonic sounds of the earlier works. For this, you can rely on the full album Dark Passion Play. The real treats are the vocals of Marco in the Amaranth Demo version 'Reach', although stretched a bit in the high end (we know he can pull this off though), and 'While Your Lips Are Still Red', the theme song written by Tuomas and sung by Marco for the Finnish movie "Lieksa!" This is another rare venture into Marco's broad style and vocal abilities and a lovely piece, and makes me hope for more features with his sounds. The orchestral version of 'Eva', a gentle and touching song, whether sung by Anette or Marco, gives us further insight to Tuomas' talents as a composer of beautiful, thoughtful, and complex works which sometimes can be covered up in the delivery of their typically energetic (and fantastic) power style. This group has changed in a huge way as far as vocals are concerned, and it will pay off for all fans to listen closely and watch as the message and new style evolve. This single will be difficult to obtain in the near future, and it's worth the money if only to have a recording of 'WYLASR' in your library.

Buy the album, not the single Oct. 21 2007
By D. Laehn - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I have been a loyal Nightwish fan and proudly own all albums and have even been to a couple concerts, so I feel that I can honestly say, hold off on the single and buy the full album for the same, or less, price tag. The album, Dark Passion Play, is phenominal, however the tracks featured on this single are less-than-adequate and not the best showing of the groups (and new singers) talent. Save your money - or just get the full album.

Amaranth is simply one of Nightwish's top three most approachable songs. The distinctive melody and heavy distorted guitars provide the unique catchy feelings which many metal lovers might find it appealing. This cd contains some great materials like Amaranth, demo version, demo version of Eva, and While Your Lips are still Red. This four track cd may simply satisfied its listeners because of a spectacular combination of melodic sound. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves heavily distorted guitar symphonic metal with female vocals.

AmaranthThis has to be one of the best CD singles I have come across. Not only do you get the fantastic single with the new and extremely competent Anette at the helm, but you get the underrated Marco singing a sensational version of Amaranth. It makes you wonder how many other demo songs are sitting in the archives that would be a pleasure for fans to hear. I also love "While your lips are still red". This should have been a single in its own right.

Again worth getting with the other vesion of the single.
