I bought this after seeing the nightwish dvd of them live at Wacken with Floor Jansen. That is a magnificent tour de force. Dark Passion Play has some interesting tracks but it comes across as a pop singer, with very little in the way of passion, being backed by a band. In short, it is really disjointed.
If I had heard this first I would have given up on Nightwish but instead I am really looking forward to their new album to be released in the early part of 2015.
With Floor Jansen and Troy, they are a complete band with a unique sound who seem to really trust each other.
