Their biggest US hit single, “Wish I Had an Angel” (2004), made it onto three US film soundtracks as a means to promote their North American tour.



The band produced three more singles and two music videos for the album, as well as “Sleeping Sun”, from the 2005 “best of” compilation album, Highest Hopes, prior to vocalist Tarja Turunen’s dismissal.

Re: Nightwish

I have Once and Dark passion Play which I admit I enjoyed but at the same time never listened to at to much depth. I heard that they got rid of the original singer who was classically trained and replaced her with one who was willing to bend to a more acceptable, mainstream sound. I've seen the original singers solo c.d. in stores. Have you listened to that one?

Re: Nightwish

I see the "Metal Elves" were busy last night...:grinthumb

I have everything from Nightwish, and I really enjoyed Tarja's vocals but have warmed up to Annette now.

Re: Nightwish

I loved Nightwish, and then swore off their new stuff with Annete, because no one could be Tarja. But eventually I realized it aint half bad...even if she isn't Tarja. :tongue:

Their live DvD 'The End of an Era' is epic. Its the concert right before they give Tarja the boot. And it gets played quite often here at my house, I have shivers from start to finish.
