I was preoccupied with the new album from Toto when this arrived a few weeks ago, so I postponed it for a little while. Now I have it and I´ve listened to it a few times. Nightwish is like a finely tuned machine, they have truly perfected their craft. With “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” they reap the rewards of all the work that has ever gone into this project – it sounds easy but you try to copy this if you can. The mere fact that they present a new singer, Floor Jansen (their third) without any problems at all is not a surprise. They are Nightwish, a band to be emulated and copied, but never surpassed.
Not much to say, it´s a great album.
