Good effort, some good songs missing though,
This review is from: Highest Hopes - The Best Of Nightwish (Audio CD)
I admire the fact that Nightwish have updated their Best-of catalogue with this latest effort that includes a mix of all their albums from 'Angels Fall First' to 'Once', plus some of the 'Over The Hills And Far Away' EP.
Personally, I dislike the ommission of '10th Man Down' and 'Come Cover Me', which I think is a far better song than 'The Kinslayer', but this is outweighed by the inclusion of classic power metal anthems such as 'Stargazers' and 'Elvenpath'.
It is rather sad that this compilation marks the end of Tarja's time in the band, but it sums up Nightwish very well and is a very conprehensive collection for beginners, with a few gems for avid Nightwish fans.
