What a great little treasure!
on 21 May 2014
This is a special album, since it is NOT Nightwish, yet it is so close to it. It sounds a bit like Imaginaerum yet at the same time so far from it...
You don't have the heavy elements here, it is more lyrical, as it is a soundtrack, but the quality of the music is still unbelievable!
It is strange how can this man, Tuomas Holopainen, turn to gold anything he touches.
What is even more brilliant is that this is a soundtrack for a movie that does not and will not exist! Don Rosa has been clear about not wanting to work with Disney, so the dream of a movie is gone. Still Tuomas loved the story so much that he alone decided to give it a worthy soundtrack! And although Don Rosa at first was sceptical (to say the least) about this strange man approaching him with such a bizzare idea, the whole thing came out so beautifully, that even he accepted to participate in its promotion...
Wonderful musical landscapes, Lyrics taken from the comics series and pipes from heaven.
This is an album for everyone who listens to quality music, not just Nigtwish fans, its a wonderful soundtrack, one of the best this year.
