This review is from: Njord (Audio CD)
By my reckoning, this is the fourth version of "Njord" that has been released, the most recent album by goth metallers Leaves' Eyes. There was the normal edition, the digipak version, the limited-edition box set, and now this 'special fan edition'. That's a lot of versions! And a lot of money for fans to hand over.
Especially, if they also ponied up for the 'My Destiny' companion EP, which is where a slew of the non-album tracks on the second disc, "At Heaven's End", first appeared. Granted, it was a great album, and any self respecting goth metal fan needs to have it in their collection, but. Apparently, this latest release is to "mark the beginning of the 2010 touring season". Uh-huh.
What you're getting inside your silver embossed black box is a copy of the "Njord" digipak and a new CD called "At Heaven's End". This is where you will find the "My Destiny" EP tracks along with the three unreleased tracks: the title track to the bonus CD, 'Angus and the Swan' and an acoustic version of 'Irish Rain', which is a bit of a family affair, as it also features Liv's sister Carmen Elise Espenaes of folk metallers Midnattsol. Chuck in the the video to 'My Destiny', and you've got the whole "Njord" era in one slipcased edition.
If for some strange reason you don't already have the album, then this definitely the edition to go for, as it's out at a fairly decent price. However, if you're a die hard who's already bought the album and EP, then you would be justified in feeling a wee bit cheated.
