Product Description

Amazon.ca

Finland's Nightwish steps to the head of the atmospheric-metal class with their third album. The regal quintet blends the brooding qualities of goth and propulsion metal with the gorgeous operatic singing of Tarja Turunen. Thanks to musical prowess and the skilled hand of composer-keyboardist Tuomas Holpainen, what could be a ponderous and pretentious affair is a vibrant metal romp. Nightwish walks that fine line between heavy-rock bravado and classical pageantry without tipping too much in either direction; the balance of aggressive guitars and flowing keyboards is just right, and the multitracked female vocals and guitar harmonies are glorious. While some may find the lyrics a bit flowery, Wishmaster bumps atmospheric metal up a notch in the right direction. --Bryan Reesman

This is my first album from Nightwish, combining the opera and heavy metal music together, it's a brand new area for me. She is my sin and the Kinslayer are my favorites. Love it

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Metal July 3 2002
Format:Audio CD
I like this album because it is relay good metal. A lot of symphonic parts with great metal sound. This is a very known band, and as other Finish metal bands (Stratovarious, Amorphis, Sonata Artica, etc) this band has a very high level in technique and have acomplish a very particular sound and style. The main composer is the Keyboard player Tuomas, who knows very well how to enrich the music with interesting dinamics of rythm and iteraccion between the instruments. Tarja, the singer is simply unic, the very best female voice in metal that I've ever heard. For the ones who own the Oceanborn or had hear it, it may be a bitter softer and less symphonic. This doesn't mean it is bad at all. The ballads are very inspiring. I especially like: she is my sin, kingslayer and dead boy's poem. All lyrics are incredible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning -- Absolutely Stunning June 27 2002
By MishL
Format:Audio CD
Ah . . . the return of big, lush rock -- with a gothy kind of twist. Nightwish produce that BIG sound that other bands can only dream of. Ultra-powerful vocals, lush arrangements, great keyboards, excellent guitar work -- they don't make many like this anymore.
The star of the band of course is vocalist Tarja -- a trained opera singer with a voice that grabs you by the front of the shirt and drags you in. The first time that I heard Nightwish, I was a little put off by Tarja's style -- but after a few more tries, I had to admit that I was hooked. I think it was "Come Cover Me" from Wishmaster that did me in. It's still one of my favorite tracks on this album. Her voice soars and croons perfectly with the classically-inspired music.
But as much as Tarja is the focal point, the true unsung hero is keyboardist Tuomas Holopanien -- the mastermind behind the music. Although I'm not familiar with his musical backgound, I bet the big bucks that he too is classically trained. The music weaves and soars just like an opera or a symphony. The man kicks serious keyboard booty on "Wishmaster" and "Crownless," a heavily opera-influenced tune if ever there was one. Not to be left out, the rest of the band is top-notch too. I'm a throw back to the days of the butt-kicking guitar solo -- it's one of the many things that I find lacking in this day of "nu metal." But not to worry friends, solos and hot guitar work abound. Yipee!
Some of my favorite tracks: "She is My Sin," "Come Cover Me," "Wanderlust," "Bare Grace Misery," and "Crownless." But don't worry, there's not a weak one in the bunch -- every song is a mini-masterpiece.
While Nightwish may not be for everyone, I think that it will appeal to fans of heavier, more intricate music.

2.0 out of 5 stars FORMULATIC AND HEARTLESS May 22 2001
Format:Audio CD
THis band from Scandinavia reminds me of Stratovarius. They sound so clean, so perfect, that you almost forget they are playing rock. It's boring and flat sound, and the female singer is annoying with his boring voice. It's a totally forgetable experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars The formation of a GREAT sound Feb. 4 2006
Format:Audio CD
I recently became hooked on Nightwish... a mere 3 months ago when I picked up the latest offering, "Once." That album was SO damn good that it prompted me to go back and start buying the rest of the catalogue. My third purchase in the line is "Wishmaster", and it's more of the same great stuff! Having bought "Oceanborn", and liking it, I nevertheless felt that it sounded a bit too much like traditional Symphony X, just with a female singer. "Wishmaster" seems to strike a perfect middle ground between that overly neo-classical style, and the hard metal edge of "Once." This is one of Nightwish's best offerings, so DO NOT let the cover art fool you!
All of the musicians are brilliant with their respective duties, and you'll find that this album is much more rhythm-guitar driven, which traditional metal-heads will find irresistable (the excellent double-kick drumming and odd-time in 'The Kinslayer', and the fist-in-the-air crunching guitar in the latter half of 'Wanderlust' are perfect examples). This isn't thrash or speed metal, and isn't anywhere near as brutally heavy as my other newfound favorite band, Children of Bodom, but the level of complexity in the songwriting, and the mixture of beautiful melody vs. hard-rocking metal is MORE than a reason to give this album a chance! My best advice is to listen to this album four, maybe five times before you pass judgment. Like most albums in this genre of music, there is a LOT being thrown at you in one sitting, and the more you listen to them, the more you love them. This is an excellent starter album for those curious about Nightwish. By the time you're done listening to it, don't be surprised if you can't get the catchy intro to the album's title track out of your head!

Apprentice!
Heartborne, 7th Seeker

In me the Wishmaster!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BAND EVER Sept. 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
This seriously is the best band ever. I don't know about this CD because I haven't bought it yet, but I am buying it today. And I KNOW it will be worth the five stars I voted it today! THEY ARE AWESOME! Wonderful lyrics. Great vocals. Awesome beat. They are an original band with an original sound and I can't get enough of them!
I can't listen to any of the old crap I used to listen to now that I know what real music is-- And this is it!
