This album had several good but unpolished ideas. The production is kind of shoddy. And some of the songs could have used some work with their structure. Still the feeling and vibe that is implied in the songs can hook you into listening bliss. Anyway, it's a good thing that these good ideas went into some better songwriting (and production) in the future (Oceanborn)...
Highlights of this CD are 'Beauty and the Beast' - lyrically telling the store of, well of course, Beauty and the Beast! It has one of the most emotional and catchiest riffs in it which perfectly accents the duet male and female vocals. And then of course we have Elvenpath, an insanely catchy tune with lots of ideas swimming around in it. I also love Tarja's vocal performance on Elvenpath. The rest of this album is still great, though. Definitely something for a Nightwish fan to purchase.
Elvenpath: Nice intro to a great album, but the male voice is kinda annoying. Rating: 4.5/5
Beauty And The Beast: One of my favorite Nightwish songs. Loved Toumas's voice and this song is so energatic. Beautiful. Rating: 5/5
The Carpenter: Nice, not wow. Toumas sings most of the song in this one only a small part Tarja sings alone. Rating: 4.5/5
Astral Romance: Beautiful riffs in the beginning and it ends with a beautiful guitar solo with keyboards. Rating: 5/5
Angels Fall First: This song is made by an acoustic guitar and it is played beautifully and melodicolly. Loved this track. Rating 5/5.
Tutankhamen: My second favorite song on the album. I love the part in the chorus when Tarja sing "Sacrifice me Tutankhamen" and ending it with a beautiful guitar solo. Rating 5/5.
Nymphomanic Fantasia: Get introduced to an evil version of Tarja. I like it when Tarja sings an evil song, but I didn't like the flutes in the end. 4.5/5
Know Why The Nightengale Sings: My favorite song on the album with a 2 minutes guitar solos in the end. Nice vocals too. Rating: 5/5
Lappi (Lapland): A song made of four parts. The first one is sung by the Finnish language with beautiful acoustic. Then, it transforms into a minute and a nineteen second with drums with some special effects. Then, a song in English and finishing with an instrumental acoustic with Tarja chanting. All in all it is cool. Rating 4.5/5
It is a cool beginnig to a great band's journey to reach their success, but yet the best album is Wishmaster. Chill with this album.
Elvenpath path is a Nightwish classic with fantastic (heavy)guitar work by Emppu and hard driving perfectly sung vocals by Tarja. Simply fantastic! I was kind of new to music this hard and initially didn't like Elvenpath. But it has become a favorite.
Beauty and the Beast:
It's ok. Tarja's voice is the best in the world and I would just as soon forget about any mediocare male vocalist who sings with her. I can tolerate Toumas because without him there would be no Nightwish... If you can slog through or like male vocals mixed with Tarja this song has some great synth work and guitar work. I'll take my Tarja straight (or neat as the Brits say) thank you.
Toumas's vocals are a little tentative but have a charming quality. Tarja vocals are good with good guitar and keyboard efforts by Emppu and Toumas. Overall I like this song and it has intersting lyrics.
Great although relatively short vocal section by Tarja (partly with Toumas) fantastic keyboards by Toumas and guitar by Emppu. From four minutes in to the end of the song are some of the best guitar work you can ever hear with equally fantastic accompanying keyboard work by Toumas. This is a fantastic song. Like usual from Nightwish.
Angels Fall First:
Kind of slower balady song with emphasis on Tarjas vocals accompanied with orchestral synths and accoustic guitar. Good song.
This song is a little wearing to me.Read more ›
Beauty and the Beast. It's ok. Tarja's voice is the best in the world and I would just as soon forget about any mediocare male vocalist who sings with her. I can tolerate Toumas because without him there would be no Nightwish.. Marco on Century Child I can do with out. He's ok on Phantom of the Opera (Century Child), however I think Phantom of the opera with Sandra S by dreams of Sanity is slightly better. Because of Marco and the arrangement, not Tarja.
Toumas's vocals are weak but the quality of his voice isn't too bad. Overall I still like this song. It is more interesting when one considers that this CD was a demo CD and was released as the first CD. Also when you see the video of this song and realize how young Tarja was when this CD was made I still respect work done in this song.
Great although relatively short vocal section by Tarja, fantastic keyboards by Toumas and guitar by Emppu. Like the previous reviewer Johnny, I agree the last minute of this song has exceptional guitar and keybord work.
This song is a little wearing to me. The Egyptian sort of tone just doesn't appeal to me very much. My son who is a supreme metal fan likes it though. I think it is a good creative effort.
Lyrics at the end are a bit severe for a male... But very passionately done by Tarja. Great Song.Read more ›
