One of the best examples of symphonic metal, this album combines the soprano voice of classically trained Floor Jansen with the fanfare of an orchestra with heavy guitars and drums providing excellent depth. The choir is well utilized, however the falsetto male vocals, are a hindrance. A majority of females sing in pitches where they sound as if they are going to seriously hurt themselves. Not Floor. All around a good Nightwish album.
