PURE MAGIC. In my opinion, the very best metal album ever

How does this album only have 6 reviews to date? This is one of the FINEST WRITTEN ALBUMS I have ever encountered. It made me like metal. Seriously. Before this album, I could never have really given metal a fighting chance. Then I encountered this album. No joke, I had a premonition dream about buying this album. OK well I knew it was going to buy it, and I ended up having a dream where I did, but STILL! haha. Each song is a MASTERPIECE. Top highlights for me include Higher than Hope, Wish I Had an Angel, Planet Hell, Dead Gardens and the GORGEOUS gem Creek Mary's Blood about the Native American decimation in the US. Also Tarja's very last album with Nightwish! Truly, a time when Nightwish was in their peak (although I am also a massive fan of their other albums, especially Imagenaerum and Wishmaster WOW). If you're new to them, start with Nemo, everyone loves Nemo!

Still the best

I’ve listened to all of Nightwish’s albums with all three singers. This album was the last one to feature Tarja before she was let go but this was the best one out of all the albums they’ve put out. It’s also the first to feature the London Philharmonic Orchestra providing the symphonic backing. This is definitely peak Nightwish with in my honest opinion Ghost Love Score being quite possibly the best song they’ve ever put out.
