Beyond the Sunset by Blackmore's Night
"With Blackmore’s Night, guitar legend Ritchie Blackmore and wife Candice Night have truly succeeded in creating an exquisite and ethereal combination of rock, folk and melodies from the renaissance era. Their utterly unique touring schedule has seen them play in venues ranging from ancient castles in rural France to historic churches in the hills of Eastern Europe. Already with a substantial body of work to their credit, Blackmore’s Night has delivered its most sublime release yet: Beyond The Sunset: The Romantic Collection. This very special release contains the most inspirational and beautiful love songs culled from the first four albums. As a teaser to the long-awaited visual project, this special package contains a bonus DVD of live footage captured in Europe. This is a lovingly crafted offering from one of music’s most talented and unique voices. Let the magic begin!" Amazon.com review.
Once by Nightwish
"Nightwish have been around for a long time, but I didn't discover them until I lingered in the Metal section of HMV and picked up a cover which intrigued me. It showed a gothic statue of a angel, slumped over in despair. This is a representation of the content of this album; full of darkness and sadness, but also true celestial beauty. You put 'Once' in the CD player, you switch it on. Within the first 45 seconds, the sheer, other-wordly splendour of this album whisks you away to another life. Nightwish combine heavy metal rifts with full orchestral score and the soaring vocals of classically trained frontwoman Tarja, and it sounds so right that you can't believe you've never listened to it before." Amazon Reviewer: Ariadne from East Kilbride, Scotland United Kingdom.
