    I was sadly one of those fans "disappointed" with this album. And then, two weeks ago, after YEARS of not listening to Nightwish, I decided to give it a try. Now I'm cursing myself for ever doubting, cause this is a goddamn masterpiece. All those concerts in my area that I've missed... now I'll never be able to hear Anette's beautiful voice singing these awesome songs.
