PostSubject: Tarja +++My winter storm+++   December 25th 2010, 11:21

Hi people,
Here I'm back again with a new review.
This time it's from Tarja - My winter storm.

Tracklist;
1. Ite, missa est
2. I walk alone
3. Lost northern star
4. Seeking for the reign
5. The reign
6. The escape of the doll
7. My little phoenix
8. Die alive
9. Boy and the ghost
10. Sing for me
11. Oasis
12. Poison (Alice Cooper)
13. Our great divide
14. Sunset
15. Damned and divine
16. CiarĂ¡n's well
17. Minor heaven
18. Calling grace

BONUS TRACKS
19. Damned vampire and Gothic divine
20. I walk alone (artist version)
21. I walk alone (In extremo remix)

Positive; + Oasis
+ In generally; more margin
+ Restful songs
Negative; - No unity (imo)
- Less deep lyrics
- Sometimes weird rhythms

So, I must say that I was pretty surprised when i listened to the album first. I heard some songs already but the most beautiful songs (imo) I hadn't heard yet!
To start with 'oasis', I want them to play this song at my funeral, seriously, it's a very restful song, you can relax at it very well, and the pianos made it so emotional. Especially its riff!
Tarja has more margin in her singing solo than in Nightwish, imo. She doesn't need to hurry and she can do it on her rhythm. She's not connected to the harder type of music but she can give it her own touch and she seperates herself from the rest.
Compared to Nightwish I think there's absolutely no unity in the songs. I sometimes have the feeling that she's just singing by herself, without any instruments, but there are instruments. That makes it a bit weird to follow, the rhythms sometimes are strange.
There's a storyline in the whole album and in all the songs, but the lyrics aren't that deep as I expected them to be.
In generally I can give this album a 8.5/10 (and the exception is oasis for me; 9/10).

What do you guys think of it?
Cheers!
santa & a merry christmas

Nice review!

About the album, i like the songs... but its kinda hard to see Tarja apart from nightwish.
Apart from her voice which remains amazing, i'm having a hard time with the "instruments are purely for backing up" and the voice takes 90% of the album.

Where are the soloes, or the divine switching between voice, guitar, keyboard, drums on the foreground Razz.

Its definatly a great album, but hard to judge objectively when u've been a longtime nightwish fan!

It's true, I had some troubles with that too, it's most of the time only Tarja, but I guess that's the meaning. I think she doesn't want to remain 'Ex - Nightwish vocalist', but just Tarja!

Very true ofcourse, but i'm thinking she'll have a very hard time to do that Razz.
Mainly cause her main vocal ambitions were classical music for as far as my knowledge goes.

Cann't get rid of the impression she wants to please the older nightwish fans, and she is really doing a nice job.
Particularly like the song die alive for some reason, but i've been listening to the classical music Tarja has sung and to be honest i find that better than the album!

Nice review!

Well I really love tarja...and my opinion an the album is pretty much the same like yours.
She's indeed got a great voice but it's really too much focused on the voice and not ond the whole band and stuff.
But it's great though.
