I find Nemo is their best song as no crummy male vocals and it's short enough so the cheese doesn't swallow you whole.

Ghost Love Score would be their best if it wasn't for the Pirates Of The Carribien break in the middle of the song. The ending is a belter but that middle section really teabags it.

Just listened to GLS to work out which bit you meant, do you mean the big orchestral bit? I really like that.

Nemo is probably my favourite, GLS, Creek Mary's Blood, Amaranth and The Poet and the Pendulum are up there too.

Thier cover of Walking In The Air is pretty hard to forgive, though. It's up there with Manowar's Nessun Dorma, which I still can't believe Was likes.

Their 'Over The Hills And Far Away' is a triumph, though. And NIGHTWISH's 'Walking In The Air' is leagues ahead of MANOWAR's 'Nessun Dorma'! Tarja can easily pull off Aled Jones, but Adams was never going to surmount Pavarotti. I took it as a mighty audacious statement of iron-balled intent, really: "Yeah we're covering 'Walking In The Air', d'you want to make something of it or wot?"

I'm sure I read an interview with them where they had no idea what the song was or where it came from, and had just chosen it because it sounded "nice" (though don't ask to prove this, or even tell you what I read it in).

That may well have been Tegs, assuming you're talking about Nightwidsh not Manowar.

Nightwish. I have no idea why Manowar covered Nessun Dorma, but I assume Joey's explanation would make me want to punch him in the face.

They covered Elvis's American Trilogy too, I first heard that in a Metal store in Australia and couldn't quite believe it was happening.

I genuinely love that on Warriors,but when I ripped the cd to my pc a few years ago I deliberately omitted Nessun Dorma,and now,thankfully,I haven't had the mispleasure of litening to it for some time.

Did you mean "Was his mother..." seeing as past-tense would be most appropriate here?

I used to quite like Nightwish. Not a fan of the newer singer tho tbh though my interest had wained prior to the release of Once which I've ironically only listened to... Once!

Oceanborn, Wishmaster and Century Child are all cracking albums though.
