Re: Music: Nightwish replaces Anette Olzon with Floor Jansen!
Really, this got me all excited for Nightwish. Anette was good in studio albums...but live, she was just pretty average. Nightwish visited my hometown couple of times but despite being big fan of the band, I just couldn't get excited over their live show. Anette lacked the voice and presence of a metal singer. Tarja was also not that great live performer. Floor, OTOH, is crazy over with the crowds already.
You know, it is pretty funny when NW fans have been fighting Tarja vs Anette battle for 5 years, then when Anette was sick, Elize Ryd filled her in with 30 minutes preparation and sounded better live than Anette OR Tarja ever:
And now there is Floor acing the songs with few weeks preparation. It begs the question, why the hell was NW handicapping itself with average singers for so long??
For your dolly Polly sleep has flown
Don't dare let her tremble alone
For the witcher, heartless, cold
Paid in coin of gold
He comes he'll go leave naught behind
But heartache and woe
Deep, deep woe
