In reverse order, apparently?

Good place to start for someone new to Nightwish. Songs from all singers. Otherwise a record company cash grab for everybody else.

So many chips on the world's shoulder. Low on ketchup.

Did Floor re-record these songs or just some collections from their catalogue? If the latter the only positive thing is that the setlist of upcoming shows are gonna based on it.

I wish she had but apparently she didn't. I am a little disappointed, I expected something more than just a collection, something like Edguy did with Monuments.

At best deranged
A bit unfortunate that they didn't re-record some of the songs with Floor. Would have been interesting to hear imo. Something like Iced Earth's "Days Of Purgatory", it's sometimes kind of fun hearing some of the older songs with another voice and style.

For people already familiar with their work, I don't really see much value to this.

deficient
Holopainen doesn't like the idea of re-recordings. I'm glad they didn't go that route.

Also, quite an unexpected tracklist. "10th Man Down" instead of the EP title-track? Odd Oceanborn picks (no "Stargazers").

Bless the Child, Ever Dream, Wishmaster...?

Re-recording with Floor would have made this one of the best albums of our modern times.

Weird picks but good collection, I'm happy 10th Man Down is getting the respect it deserves
