I am one of those who were very happy when Anette Olzon took place as vocalist in Nightwish. Her strong, pop-oriented voice smoothed itself perfectly into the band’s highly dramatic music. Abba Metal, if you will. Olzon-era tunes such as “Amaranth” and “Storytime” are great highlights of the Nightwish cannon, in my humble opinion. The Dark Element was more of the same, and here comes Olzon’s second solo album.
