I still don't see why this couldn't have been the 8th Nightwish album. There's bugger all here that wouldn't have sounded out of place on Imaginaerum.

Dayum I wasn't aware his solo stuff was on this site. Nice to see he fulfilled his wish of composing a Scrooge album.

I thoroughly enjoyed this album, very warm and even nostalgic at times. I like that this doesn't sound like an overly-ambitious Nightwish album either.
