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

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!
Master!
Apprentice!
Heartborne, 7th Seeker

In me the Wishmaster!

Out of all the band I like none of them have ever touched me like Nightwish. There is just something about them. Be it Tarja's singing. Toumas writing the music. Emppus on Guitar. Jukka's drum playing. Or Marco's singing(in this case though he is not part of Wishmaster) Sami playing here. Which he is a very good bass player. But I like Marco better.
Nightwish just brings so many thing to there music. Know on to the songs.
1. She Is My Sin - Great start to the CD very fast and heavy *****
2. Kinslayer - This is about what have in 1999 in ColO. Very fast and heavy. Great use of the male voice. *****
3. Come Cover Me - I like how this one starts off slow then get's really heavy. *****
4. Wanderlust - I love ever thing in this song Tarja's singing, the guiter, keyboards, drums, bass. I listen to this song a lot. *****
5. Two for Tragedy - A good slow song. I guess that's what you coudl call it. Good but not great. ***
6. Wishmaster - Fantasy metal rules. :) *****

7. Bare Grace Misery - Start off a little slow then really picks up. ****

8. Crownless - Very fast very heavy it's all must like hearing speed metal. *****

9. Deep Silent Complete - Again starts of slow, get's heavy but not really heavy and is very deep. *****

10. Dead Boy's Poem - Not my fav song on the CD. But still it is good to listen to from time to time. ***

11. Fantasmic - Best song on the whole CD. Starts off heavy, then becomes slow. Then it goes right back into being heavy and fast. I mean really fast and heavy. *****
All around great CD. Some may not like it. But I don't really care what they think any ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute musical perfection. Period. Jan. 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ah, Sergio...please do not think you are the most "varied" listener there is and pretend to be so "cultured" in your review. Sergio, for those who don't know, is the reviewer whose review you will find somewhere around mine. Sergio, check out my reviews - I listen to every (and I mean EVERY) conceivable variety of Rock and Metal, and also Jazz, Funk, African, Blues, Classical, Reggae, Afro-Cuban music, etc....how's that for variety? And I happen to think that Nightwish is one of the best bands EVER. And, believe me, I have heard LOTS. I am also a musician, and I have been playing for 12 years,and I really find nothing to fault here - Nightwish have achieved the perfect balance of melodious grace and hard-hitting power. This is definitely their best album. With them, I have not suffered the "first-listen" syndrome. This is a curious condition which causes you to almost always like the most the first album that you listen to of any given band. The first one I owned was "Oceanborn", which is their previous album. But, I must say that "Wishmaster" is slightly superior to that other brilliant masterpiece. So they might have a melody here and there that you might call "accesible" (such as the chorus on "Bare Grace Misery"), but so what? Of course, if you want utter inaccesibility and harshness, get a dose of Cannibal Corpse (one of my faves), or in Jazz, the deliciously brutal sax player Albert Ayler, but in a supremely melodious and beautiful music such as this, a nit-picker like you might find a "too pretty" melody for his/her taste, and denounce it as "accesible." God forbid! Sorry, man. I just love Nightwish too much, and I get a bit violent. I mean, if you don't like it, fine, just say it isn't your cup of tea. Read more ›
