Post Nightwish Appreciation Thread (Haters gonna hate)
It's come to this, I don't care if this thread breaks the internet and gives it AIDS, you have asked for this.

I like Nightwish and have manfully (at least as manfully as I can manage) taken abuse for many years. I don't understand the levels of bile they attract on here or elsewhere. I completely understand that people wouldn't like them or have any interest or see them as "false" or "gay". They are brilliant at what they do, I have little or no time for bands compared to them - Within Temptation, Leave's Eyes etc.

Enough of the pre-emptive defense. I have Wishmaster, Once and Dark Passion Play, I only really listen to Once and a couple of tracks from the latter, I think Tuomas is a great songwriter and the orchestral elements are used efficently and enhance the tracks rather than impede them, they are cheesy as hell but I love that element, theatrics and silly OTT pomp and splendour have always been an inherent part of Metal. Nightwish are simply one of the more recent offshoots of this, injecting a West End sensibility into Metal is less silly than it sounds and, in their case, it works.

Other forum Nightwish fans: Spiny, Mali, K&R, Steev, Chantler, Lee (who embaraasedly admitted this to me at the Beerfest last year) even Richie recently told me he quite liked some of their stuff. Apologies to anyone who likes them who I've forgotten.

I think they're alright. Nothing wrong with them, but I just can't seem to get overly excited about them. But the odd album every now and again is grand.
Planet Hell is probably my favourite track by them.

I have the first four albums in some hardback book thingy. All other albums, I prefer wishmaster due to memories of that era and going to wacken etc. Yes it is overblown pomp nonsense but I like it.

At risk of sounding like a stuck record: I like the first three albums (Angels Fall First, Oceanborn and Wishmaster), but they went shit after Marco Hietala joined the band. Talentless cunt.

Never really liked them, but never hated them either. I always figured they were the sort of band all metaller boys had to pretend to like to get girls.

I think they're a really good band, Wishmaster is my favourite, possibly because it was the first one I heard, possibly because it's got Kinslayer on it.

I like the middle finger of starting their last album (the first one without the famous bird, the operatic one, on vocals) with a 14 minute long concept epic, and I like pretty much every track they've released (apart from Phantom of the Opera, and Master Passion Greed - track on the last album about the old singer that isn't a great tune for me).

I am not ashamed to like Nightwish in any way shape of form, and they're more metal than Within Temptation, that's for sure (though that new Within Temptation is vying with Moonsorrow for album of the year for me)

Listen to Kinslayer. Then the rest of Wishmaster. The all of Oceanborn. Then all of Once. Then you'll be converted. Then you can listen to the new one.

First time I heard them, circa 2000, there was a real "No waaaay" vibe filled the air. It was exciting. Spun 'Wishmaster' in Snowdonia last winter with the setting sun twinkling on the snow, perfect terrain.

If a CD single fetched £45, how much would I get for the 2001 box set of picture discs limited to 1000 copies with NIGHTWISH slipmat and bonus LP of rarities? I seem to remember HMV Oxford Circus had a stack at reduced price they couldn't shift. This was 2001 of course, when the only people in the UK who gave a shit about Nightwish were Greek students.

You don't out someone against their will, Myr.

I've liked a few songs that I've heard, but every time I've tried to listen to a full album I've got bored. Also, for some reason that's only to do with my own preference I'm just not that fond of that kind of vocals from women. Men can be as gay and wind-swept as they want, but I like my ladies raw and emotional.

Yes, you can quote that last bit out of context.

once is brilliant and I like a few other songs here and there but Once is the only album of thiers i like all the way though. regardless of what sub genre you lump them into they sound like no one else and live they are pretty killer

Yeah, that's one of the songs I've heard and liked. I probably should like them, God knows there's no logical reason why Rhapsody are okay and they're not, they've just never given me a solid reason to really bother.

Fanboys - is Once the album I need to check out, then?
