Hey Loke,

So mighty priest, you DO think nightwish is a commercial band or not?

honestly speaking I don't know them well enough to judge that, so I better keep my mouth shut about this. :)

Cheers!

I think that in our context the following definition applies: Music is commercial if and only if it was made to suit the taste of the masses in order to sell as many copies as possible. It's considered a bad thing because this means a sacrifice of artistic integrity for financial success. Don't you agree that it is a bad thing to play stuff you don't really like, just because of the money?
Okay, we've got a definition. Not a precise one, mind you, but an accurate one :) (commercial in its actual meaning refers to something else, something that encompasses every and all album out there... if the artists who made the album want money in return for the musical goodness it provides)

Bearing the street definition in mind rather than the textbook one, I can't honestly say Nightwish is a commercial band. Evolving or simply changing one's style does not necessarily mean one's only interest is more money. A band doesn't need to evolve into something even more obscure to be considered true - evolution into a more mainstream feeling can be the result of the wishes and moods of the band members, not just of the state of their pockets.

Commercial in this street sense is, thus, not something I like to use. I prefer the term 'losing one's artistic integrity'. It's longer, true, but more to the point.

And no, I don't like that.
Can't stop the signal.

Every Nightwish album is great! They are power, only Once is symphonic.

I've heard the sample from "Eva".... This new girl has a really nice voice, I actually liked her better than Tarja in the last album. But the song... I don't know, it just sounded a little Pop for my taste.
I'm just hoping to hear her in heavier songs. :)

Hm, I find "Eva" not really thrillng but I like it - it´s Nightwish style and it´s good for introducing the new singer. It fit´s the charity reason, I think. I also heard the samples and I´m curious for the new album ... and to see them on stage with the new girl :)

I've tried the samples....

Hmmm the music is Nightwish, and in best form - probable even better then during WIshmaster days... but I can't stand this vocal... maybe I got used to it with time...
