Stunning. Nightwish, one of the best metal bands out there, with one of the best singers in the world right now, performing a setlist of songs from across their career in front of a South American audience that goes insane in the way that only South American audiences do (and the energy of that crowd comes across on the CD as well as the DVD). There's a lot of pre-2005 material here, and Floor rises to the challenge, makes those songs her own, and truly impresses. There are moments of terror as you feel she's setting up a high note she has no chance of hitting - and then she does, spectacularly, laying to rest the ghost of Tarja once and for all (she's already done that, several times over, of course, but there are always a few naysayers). The whole band rise to the occasion behind her, and create one of the best live albums/DVDs of the decade (see what I did there?)
Negative points? Well, the newer material doesn't sit alongside the older songs too well, songs like Nemo and Amaranth really do eclipse the other tracks, and the choice of material from the Endless Forms album is baffling (what were they thinking?), and there are some huge omissions in the setlist, but it would be churlish to mention those.
Nightwish = simply staggering. Can't wait for the new album next year!
