Yeah that's a fair assessment.
I'm with Vader, Tarja era Nightwish is better than anything. I own the 3 albums since Tarja was sacked too, and they're OK in their own rights as more folk metal.
Within Temptation is an amazing band too and like others have said, a more consistent band. I was thinking Sharon's voice might be getting a little weak around Unforgiven, but it sounded better on Hydra.
I would go with Tarja era Nightwish by just a little bit. Luckily I can own everything by both bands.
Not one for either but if I had to choose it would be Nightwish.
Definitely Nightwish for me, an outstanding ever-changing band, I love Within Temptation too, especially their early albums.
