I am a fan of Tarja's music and have everything that she has made - including all of the Nightwish music from when she was a member of the band. This CD is the worse group of songs that she has ever made. One of the saddest things is that two are cover songs - and both sound dreadful; one is Paradise (which was better on Within Temptations CD); and most of the others are on Shadow Self. So if you purchased both CDs - you basically rebought most of the same music. Terrible job from a singer that I feel has the greatest voice out there.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
