Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Released in the second half of last year, was the second album from Revamp, the new band formed by Floor Jansen following the demise of After Forever. After suffering from burnout and completely leaving music for a year, Floor was asked to join Nightwish to replace Anette Olzon in the middle of the Imaginaerum world tour to fill in for the remaining dates, and has since joined as a permanent member. After the tour finished, a re-energized Floor set to writing the follow up to 2010′s self titled, and the album Wild Card was released.

The first thing you notice on this album is how much heavier it is compared to the debut album. Perhaps because of her burnout, there were a lot of negative emotions she needed to get out, and it comes across in every aspect of the music. Heavy chugging riffs and grooving sections are interspersed with keyboards and choirs contributing a symphonic flavour to the album. Guitar and keyboard solos are also used and give the album a progressive edge, while heavy drumming and lots of growling add to the heaviness and atmosphere of this rather diverse album. The most symphonic track on the album is Distorted Lullabies, which is one of my favourite tracks, it just has everything. Fantastic vocals, heavy riffs, symphonic sections and catchy melodies.

Floor's voice on this album is just staggering. She's one of my favourite singers, and she puts in a very diverse performance here, definitely one of her best. She can belt out powerful emotional melodies to match anyone, while also able to growl, sing beautifully soft passages, and use her operatic voice to incredibly dramatic effect.

This album grabs you and won't let go! An awesome listening experience that leaves you breathless, and flabbergasted. Brilliantly crafted songs, heavy yet melodic; fantastic vocals by Floor Jansen and the band play brilliantly! I really can't praise this enough, I loved their first album, but this is on a different level; just superb !!

I have to admit to only listening to this album following Floor Jansen's brief stint on tour with Nightwish. I am pleased to say that I am glad I did. The powerful guitars combined with Floor's vocals (which in some way strangely reminded me of Kate Bush, perhaps after much overuse of steroids), make for an eclectic mix of crushing power metal and melodic sequences. An altogether enjoyable album.
