It's very different to previous albums. This one has a much less metal and more folky vibe to it, yet it still unmistakably Nightwish.


Personally, I find Tarja's style a little too operatic/harsh to enjoy, but I know a lot of fans loved her. I'm completely smitten with Floor since she took over from Anette in 2012.

If you've not heard her yet, then here's a couple of comparisons to the previous singers:

Tarja doing Ghost Love Score
Floor doing Ghost Love Score

Anette doing Storytime
Floor doing Storytime


As for Bob Dylan, "Oh Mercy" is one of my most played albums.

Then you may enjoy Floor's rendition of Poet and the Pendulum

Like I said, completely smitten.

Chromatica, I don't have a favorite Gaga album, but this one is right up there with Born This Way and The Fame Monster.this is the first album I've ever heard, where I could put it on in the car, and listen to it front to back
