5.0 out of 5 stars The Breakthrough Album, 20 Nov 2005
This review is from: Oceanborn [European Import] (Audio CD)
Oceanborn still marks the pinnacle of what Nightwish are capable of. That is, hard, heavy, slightly proggy, and insanely catchy symphonic pop-metal. Quite a mouthful I know, but this is a band that have two major facets that set them apart from the rest. Firstly, they know (like all successfull rock bands of the past) that great rock is just as much about catchy melodies as it is about heavy riffs and a striking image.
Secondly, they have Tarja Turunnen. Either this was a girl who took the wrong turning at the musical careers office or singing at the Royal Opera House really was not for her. A truly remarkable voice that turns the already good into the utterly magnificent.
On Oceanborn, we have a band all to aware of what they can do and well prepared to carry it off. An utter blast.
