I remember seeing Nightwish albums on the rack, picking them up, checking out the song titles and thinking to myself "One day". Well, one day finally arrived and I got Dark Passion Play.
I was blown away from the opening trackThe Poet and The Pendulum. Annette's voice sounded great. I thought that they unleashed all of their energy into this first song, and that it is all down hill from here. Wrong. Bye Bye Beautiful, Amaranth, the list goes on-these songs stick withyou and that is the key. This is one album where you hear the music and love its artistry but also retain the songs in your head. It's not hard to digest at all.
I can't find any filler songs on this one, the slow ones are great-The Islander, Meadows of Heaven and Eva. The up tempo stuff like Bye Bye Beautiful kicks butt and you find yourself headbanging to the mid temp stuff, like Sahara.
Amaranth is catchy and quick, doesn't drag out and is great for a single.
All in all, don't be afraid to drop your hard earned money on this. Maybe you are still trying to decide whether or not to get this-just get it. You will be impressed.
I can't wait to see where they go from here.

This was the first Nightwish cd I ever heard and it remains the best. I think that Anette Olzon is even better than the recently fired Tarja. I do really enjoy Tarja's operatic voice on previous albums, but Anette's voice just sounds better to me. I do know that many old Nightwish fans aren't as happy with Anette as I am, so if you're a big fan of their previous works, be warned that the vocals here are rather different (better, in my opinion)
As for the music... well, it's fantastic. "The Poet and the Pendulum" is an epic 14 minute track but it is so mezmorizing that it just flows by. Marco is at his best here as well with songs like "Bye Bye Beautiful," "Master Passion Greed," and "The Islander" all featuring his lead vocals.
I'm really looking forward to their next album.

Euro-Metal with classical/operatic stylings
Posted by: Stillrockin56 from: New York NY on
Let me begin by saying that the sound is huge: keyboards, orchestrations, guitars and vocals. The songs are very melodic but some may consider them overblown to a certain degree and, at some point, it all may sound a bit repetitive. All instruments are subservient to the songs so there are very few solos for a metal album. If you like your metal a bit rawer, this may not be for you.
