If you don't like Disney there is some thing wrong with you.
Haha, I have to agree XD And, their new album reminds me of the likes of the Haunted Mansion and Nightmare Before Christmas and such :O
I adore their stuff with their old singer, but I still listen to their new stuff off and on. Plus, I have a whole lot of respect for Nightwish, seeing as they are the reason I got into metal (along with Vampire Hunter D...Because when I was 13 I was being cheap and trying to watch Bloodlust on youtube, and accidentally clicked on this AMV):
I remember thinking it was a guy singing at first, and being all like, "Weeeeeeeeeeeeird....." *hurr durrr*
Then, I saw their live rendition of "The Phantom of the Opera," a story which I had been intrigued with since I was a child and my mother went to go see the musical, bringing back a cd of the original London cast. Since I already loved watching musicals like "Cats" and "Les Miserables," I loved it. I loved listening to it and trying to figure out with my young mind what all was going on, and the eerie feeling and goosebumps it cast over me left me paralyzed. By middle school, I was reading all the books and going through all the movies. Then, the newest movie based on the musical was released, and I went to go see it. My obsession was pretty ridiculous, actually XD. Because of that, I got into classical music and started listening to songs from operas such as "Carmen," "Madama Butterfly," and "Faust." Needless to say, the fact that they sang "The Phantom of the Opera" gave them instant win-points in my book.
So yeah, I'm still heavily into theater, and into metal, aaaand, since we're still on the topic of Nightwish, I'll post some of my favorite songs by them. Good day!
I am honestly not picky about the lead singer. I think they are both very talented. It just depends on my mood. Tarja has that beautiful tone of silk, while I usually listen to Anette for a more rebelious tone. Either way, I get Tuomas. rolleyes
We can't compare Tarja and Anette - one of them has classical voice, and the second one is just different, more delicate and higher. Think what you want, but I like both of them.
Also, Imaginaerum rocks!
Ohhh gosh, Nightwish is amazing. I've only heard one or two of their songs because I never got around to looking them up more. An ex of mine introduced me to them. Nemo? A work of ART! That song makes me cry almost EVERY time. So deep and so metaphorical...dflgkhdgk they are lovely.
Sooo does anyone want to reccommend some especially good songs for me to look up on youtube?
