With Human. :II: Nature., Nightwish aim to explore life, the universe and everything, but spend too much time staring at the bigger picture to notice the smaller necessities they've overlooked.

It's even bigger disappointment because we know what potential they have...
Having Marco and Floor and Kai and Jukka.... and this is the best you can produce? It's not. But I think that mastermind of band is tired of playing metal and composing the same over and over again. Honestly, I don't expect some great comeback of NW in the future.

And I thought Endless Forms was bad.

I say some legendary bands must just retire themselves on time so to avoid such disappointing productions.

My most beloved Nightwish album for the last decade. More esoteric, less cheesy, less eurovision-esque . Everything is just to the point. Excellent the second part of the album with the soundtrack songs.

The sad thing about Tuomas is not that he has artistic aspirations beyond metal. It's that his idea of ambitious, groundbreaking music that squeezes metal and a symphonic orchestra to its absolute limits is... trite blockbuster soundtrack music. His artistic sensibility is entirely seeped in sentimental blandness. I mean, Hans Zimmer is to classical music what Nickelback are to metal. His all-time favorite song is Walking in the Air, ffs. Everything about Nightwish these days betrays a lack of good taste (and perhaps it was always like that, it just worked at first because the power metal reference points were so cool). I know it's a bit vague and hard to articulate, but if you have good taste, you just know what's bad.

I think songs like How's the Heart would actually be much better if they dropped all metal pretensions and played straight-up show tunes. It clearly yearns to be on Broadway or a Disney film, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Yet another uninteresting album in a long line indifferent and tasteless bleh.

(I do think Floor has a nice voice, I never missed Tarja even in Anette's time, and Marco is always pretty good. But personally, I think Century Child is the last really great Nightwish album. Once and DPP have their moments but overall the magic touch isn't there.)
