I like some Nightwish songs here and there, but can't go through a whole album without getting bored. and, is it just me or I Wish I Had an Angel sounds like some hit from DanceDanceRevolution mixed with guitars?

I fail to see sounding like Tarot as a bad thing, though Tarot themselves do it better.
While I agree with the second part of your statement, most new Tarot is just boring to me. Only a few songs really stick out. And I just find it annoying when a band member plays in two bands, and the two bands sound the same, or extremely similar. Just bothers me...Especially when that same person has the same role in both bands, which is the case here.


True. I still like Tarot's later output as much as their earlier stuff, but I guess I can see where you're coming from.

Oh crap, it does. I find it to be an alright song, but it is pretty dancy. :P

Wish I Had an Angel is a fucking terrible song. Almost totally unlistenable.

Normally I would at least try to find some good moments in a bad/terrible song but holy hell "Wish I had an Angel" literally has no good moments whatsoever.

Actually, I don't agree. Probably because I'm a sucker for female vocals :ugh: Probably why I love Within Temptation so much. Or at least did. Haven't listened to them for a while, but I probably still love their songs.


Nightwish is a rather decent band until DPP where they turned into pop rock. Oceanborn is probably the best album. Once is good, and I can't understand why I think so.

The new chick sounds so generic that the band is just an average rock band with some symphonic elements added to them. Marco is by the way fucking horrible.

Dark Passion Play was better than any of the other Nightwish albums I heard, just for value of not having Tarja and sounding more like Tarot.

Marco is one of the best male clean vocalists around. Horrible? Fuck no, why do people actually say that? What about him do you not like exactly?

I'm just too big of a Tarot fan, but I'll respect your opinion.

Oceanborn is about decent, Wishmaster sounded sort of similar, so I never got far with that. I appreciate that they were doing something different in metal with Oceanborn, but I can't say I like Tarja's style too much.

Oceanborn is the only listenable album they made. A few okay songs on Wishmaster; however, it's a sub-par attempt in the songwriting department for a full length.

Wish I Had An Angel is a great song, Marco Hietala is just simply an awesome force in Nightwish and makes everything so much better.

I personally categorize Nightwish as this point when I listen to them; I either listen to Once in it's entirety, or about the same 10 other songs from the rest of their albums.

Dead to the World, Over the Hills and Far Away, End of All Hope, Crownless, most of Oceanborn and Century Child has solid songs that I can listen to most of it's entirety though.
