    Dunno , but I heard the new album and well, I miss Tarja. It is good, but it misses something in my opinion. What do you guys think?

    Tarja had the operatic thing down, but Anette (the new singer) feels less...overbearing?...to me. Dark Passion Play felt like a massive creative step forward, no offense meant to Tarja.

    In terms of the live performance, Anette hands down. She was an awesome stage presence that totally mingled in with the rest of the band. While Tarja felt more like a seperate entity onstage to me, Anette felt like a member of the band.

    That said, no hate for Tarja here, I just think Nightwish has gotten a little more creatively free in the aftermath of letting her go. And Tarja's solo album isn't too shabby.

    Anette all the way. Dark Passion Play was the best album I've bought in a long time.

    I should add:

    Including a fully instrumental-orchestral version of the album on a second disc is a great way to get Vangelus on your side, too. ;)

    I had heard of Nightwish before, even listened to a few tracks. Loved the music.
    Couldn't stand her as the singer (aside from Planet Hell, that song ROCKS!!!! :rock ).
    When I found out they got a new singer, I gave them another shot.
    Dark Passion Play is damn near the sickest album I've heard in the last 12 months.
    I've even gone back and started liking some of there older stuff, but I have to admit if not for gaining Anette.
    Nightwish would be in the discard pile for me.

    Preferred Tarja, at least musically. To me they just sound like a bad Within Temptation clone now.
