'Beautiful Voices' is the third in a series of CD/DVD sets from Nuclear Blast celebrating Rock/Metal etc bands with female vocalists. Volume three contains a 70 plus minute DVD with an equally long CD and while a lot of the bands featured on the DVD are also on the CD, most of the time they are performing different tracks. Artists include Nightwish (new version), Epica, Doro, Sirenia, Lacuna Coil, Bif Naked, Xandria and many others. As with a lot of compilations, not all of the tracks will be to your particular taste, but there are some real gems included here and as such 'Beautiful Voices' could be a good move if you are looking for a decent sampler of what 'female fronted rock' has to offer. Particularly good, are the first 5 or six video's on the DVD (things taper off a little after halfway) including an ingenious video from Nightwish where members of the band morph between who they actually are and sexy scantily clad girls! Best video of all however goes to Sirenia where the band perform amongst a palace of ice! Most of the songs on this collection are heavy but melodic (bar a few 'shouty, grunty' thrash outs) and none of the songs are over long which suggests this set is aimed not just at existing fans but with an eye on 'converting a few' to the cause. All in all, a solid 7 out of 10.
