NIGHTWISH WISHMASTER reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Conor Fynes
'Wishmaster' - Nightwish (6/10)

While Nightwish have never been the most mind-boggling band around, they have had albums where they really seem to push their boundaries forward. Albums like the grandiose 'Dark Passion Play' really deepened their sound into something special. Nightwish also have albums that are more conventional, but still catchy and enjoyable. 'Wishmaster' is one of those less progressive, but fun records.

'Wishmaster' is the sort of album that's good to put on every once in a while and just listen to. Catchy choruses, riffs and undemanding song structures lend a nice, unstraining musical experience. The performance is superb, and the band really works as a singular unit, but the end product is very rarely mind blowing. There are moments in the album however, such as the title track 'Wishmaster' which really make the listener jump out of his seat. It's a sound that's been done many times before, but Nightwish's symphonic metal meld can really project some great musical poetry at times.

Another great song is 'Dead Boy's Poem' which sounds like it was a very carefully composed track. It sheds the verse/chorus mold that seems to envelop much of the album and progresses like a prog metal ballad should. Very deep, epic sound without sounding generic.

There have been alot of albums that have sounded like this one, and most don't even belong in the prog genre. 'Wishmaster' is a great album however, for someone looking for a break from demanding, highly chaotic prog metal proper, and want something with a bit more structure.

Good enjoyment for a few listens!

If Oceanborn was the album were they discovered their sound, Wishmaster was definetly the album where the sound was made whole. With techinical metal songs and more poppy songs, this album found a natural balance, and was insteresting throughout.

Being a massive Nightwish fan, I would believe that this album was their best.

1. She Is My Sin - Amazing riff, catchy chorus, incredibly memorable. What more can you want. Oh yea, the lyrics are pretty great too, with some great hooks and one liners.

2. The Kinslayer - One of their most kickass songs in my opinion. From the incredibly crafted crescendo vocal parts for choirs, the dramaticism throughout, and amazing technacallity from all members, this song is definetly one of their best. Even the spoken word parts, which are bit chessy, are exeptable.

3. Come Cover Me - Having covered this song in my band Eternia, this song is incredibly catchy with some incredibly beautiful and kick ass melodies. The more poppier sound that we expect.

4. Wanderlust - One of the most beautiful and techincal things I have ever heard. Usually I can play almost anything on the guitar. But this song always makes me scratch my head. The chorus is incredibly catchy and the end is incredibly beautiful.

5. Two For Tragedy - A lovely ballad, none more to say.

6. Wishmaster - Every Nightwish fan can't not say that this song is kick ass. The misheard lyrics for this song is incredibly funny (cause not even Tarja knows what she is saying). The middle section is amazing as well. The lyrics are pretty odd, but good.

7. Bare Grace Misery - Look at the misheard lyrics I made for this song, (put the title in you tube, it's probably still there). Incredibly catchy and memorable.

8. Crownless - Kickass and very power metal. Catchy chorus adds to the ass kicking.

9.Deep Silent Complete - All Finnish bands end up sounding like HIM for some reason. This is Nightiwish's (that and Sacrament Of Wilderness, even the title of these songs sound like HIM, don't get me wrong, HIM are kickass, and if you disagree, then we shall fight at dawn.)

10. Dead Boy's Poem - The last 2 songs on this album are so good, I had to listen to them twice. This song is incredibly beautiful, very sad and melancholic. Amazing guitar solo, I probabbly did cry while listening to this song.

11. FantasMic - Does the words OH MY GOD, mean anyhthing. God this song rules. With amazing prog dramatic like changes, incredibly lyrics (about Disney films...) and an amazing vocal performance from Tarja and that choir that seems to follow her all the time.

CONCLUSION: Nightwish's best album. Buy it, buy it, buy it, buy it.

Members reviews

Vobiscum
Since I heard so far is my favorite album of them. "Wishmaster" represents for me the pinnacle of the band's creativity. What came before and what came after does not compare to this album. They kept the same members of the previous album "Oceanborn". "She Is My Sin" starts the album with the band's characteristic riffs and vocals even better "Tarja Turunen". The chorus is a striking melody. The solo "Emppu Vuorinen" and the technique enhanced "Jukka Nevalainen" in the sticks. This song is the omen of success that this album is.

"The Kinslayer" is a masterpiece in every 3 minutes and 59 seconds. Harmony, pompous arrangements, technical quality.

"Come Cover Me" is used to toast the larger space allowed the guitar from that album. The keyboard is still there, but in a more balanced volume with the other instruments. Even the bass becomes louder. The production of the album was far more exquisite than the first two.

After a more lilting song, "Come Cover Me," "Wanderlust" is already on the run and the combination of keyboard and guitar becomes almost like hand and glove here. With improved techniques, all the instruments stand out.

"Two For Tragedy" slows through dramatic interpretation of "Tarja Turunen" with a vocal technique chilling to the soul. The sound of the flute extends the sound trip, followed by a short but beautiful guitar solo.

The album title is a fantastic song, "Wishmaster". Double bass drums, striking riffs, "Tuomas Holopainen" inserting various sounds from your keyboard, further enriching the song's melody. It seemed impossible to see something better but this was still only the sixth track.

Gently "Sami Vänskä" is exposed on the track "Bare Grace Misery". A song without the same speed of "Wanderlust" and "Wishmaster", but certainly enjoyable.

"Crownless" is a comparison of speed between all instruments, as if to see who can be faster, obviously there is no winner but indivual collective, the band again excels. "Tarja Turunen" seems to sing easier than ever.

"Deep Silent Complete", "Dead Boy's Poem" and "Fantasmic" ends the album in its standard edition.

"Deep Silent Complete" is a song very short but well thought out.

"Dead Boy's Poem" is a ballad to the peculiar style of the band itself, exposing the voice quality of "Tarja" and his dramatic interpretation.

The album could not have done differently, "Fantasmic" is a rhythmic variation that until then the band had not yet experienced. There are more than eight minutes of riffs, chords, arrangements and great technique, and creativity of Finnish. The album is highly recommended even for those not a fan of the band, just be fond of a good quality music and proven technique.
