Unless you hate music in general, you'll love these two albums. This package is a bargain, since these cds cost $30 a piece here in the U.S. if you buy them at a music store. If you haven't heard much of Within Temptation, just go to youtube and check out their great videos. These guys are amazing composers. They combine hard rock, metal, classical, choirs, and opera style vocals to bombard your senses with what can be described as an audio orgy. They stack layer after layer of melodies using violins, trumpets, choirs, flutes, harps, and ofcourse guitars. Their singer, Sharon Den Adel, is a freak of nature. The vocal range she posseses violates the known laws of the natural world. Both these albums are amazing, and I cannot recommend them enough. What's more amazing is that Within Temptation isn't the biggest musical act in the world yet.
