Silly me, not realising there were two totally different versions, I managed to get the wrong one! Essentially, this isn't Nightwish, it's an orchestral score created by rock musicians as a film sound track (the band is claiming credit for the arrangements on the the sleeve notes), which is a completely different beast. It's effectively a Nightwish album without Nightwish on it. Take the first 90s of The Poet & The Pendulum and extend it the length of an album, or take the whole of P&P and strip the guitars & voice out. You'll then have a very good idea of how the album sounds.
That doesn't make it a bad album; it's pleasant enough listening. I'll also credit the fact that is isn't computer-generated, which was my first thought on hearing it. The orchestral instruments are played by orchestras, the voices are real choirs. But it's not Classical music.Read more ›
"Find your Story" is basically Taikatalvi reborn with a dark edge, the edges not so sharp and vocals removed, a pure movie score, a perfect intro and it sets everything, mood and all in perfect motion for what is about to come.
"Orphanage Airlines" and we get a chopped up piece of Symphonic Storytime which has been redone with the chorus blasting through and that orchestral bridge near the end, the score continues, the flow is spot on and the best of the song bombastically rockets through.
"Undertow" takes on a strange, dark journey with little of the old Ghost River remaining, save the Children choir section which makes its way into the creepy background seamlessly. This is followed by "Spying in the Doorway" which is one of the more independent pieces of the soundtrack and it captures the titled moment perfectly, a soft piece, the transitions keep going and then we get drawn into...
Arequesque was, as Holopein phrased it, a piece that would make more sense in the film, being honest I thought it was going to be a direct transition to film, but instead we get "A Crackling Sphere" which adds more atmosphere, is more bombastic and has a more complete sound.Read more ›
There are 13 tracks on this album lasting just short of 54 minutes. I won't go into every track in detail, because I would imagine that people getting this release will probably have encountered many of the melodies as heard in the previous Imaginearum release. So the question needs to be asked, what does this release contain that is above and beyond what you have heard before?Read more ›

Amazing album.first one I've listened to from nightwish.will listen to the others soon,StevePublished 10 months ago by Steve
I bought this for my husband for his birthday.
He loves it which I`m happy about, he hasn`t stopped playing it since.
Even after several months, I can't stop playing this.
The music is so stimulating and lively. Great for night driving, keeps you very alert!
This is the score to the Imaginaerum movie and not the actual Nightwish Imaginaerum CD the band released earlier than this cd. Still this is a must buy for any fan of the movie.Published on 11 July 2013 by Herpman

This CD doesn't contain any lyrics and is apparently the musical score from a movie with the same name.
Disappointing, as this was not what I was expecting. Read more
