This recent posted video from Nightwish reminded me how the new single from her new CD My Winter Storm had already been released.
The song is amazing, the video isn't as much. But let's see what you think about it. Enjoy!
Is it just me or the tittle of the songs seems too appropriate?
I think there is just too much in the video, it becomes cluttered, and the songs not that brillant either, the music is quite dull.
Appropriate? You mean this is Tarja's response to Bye Bye Beautiful? lol after claiming to have never heard it,
Yeah the video has too much. But still... the wig! I mean... the freaking wig!
The music from the song isn't impressive but I gotta admit that it's better than what I expected from her in this solo project. What brings the song up IMO is the way it combines with her voice and then it's when I feel the song becomes amazing, just because of making the somehow average-ish music be a part of a good song as a whole. Which is the exact opposite of what happens with this post-Tarja Nightwish, I'll explain myself. You hear songs like Amaranth which are clearly a new style for Nightwish, then Anette's voice seems could do fine. Then you listen to more epic-like songs with a clearly more complex composition such as The Poet and the Pendulum and it is there where the difference really shows. In all hopes I was wishing that when songs as those came up with this new CD the effect would be somewhat similar as one part brought up the other (less vocal performance could be lifted up by a great musical composition & execution making it a great song) but it just isn't like that, it was the very opposite as I listened how a great song was turned into just a song because of painfully average vocal performances. That is just my opinion tho ;D
Dang I wrote too much ^^"
And yeah, lol, it's like she's not even trying to hide it XD
