seriously? I thought Tarja was the major drawback of the band. Luckily she's out though

Same here, not that she wasn't talented, just that her voice can be a bit irritating at times. Minus I Wish I Had An Angel and Nemo, they are a good band but those songs really are bad.

I like Tarja, although I'm interested to hear their next release. Nemo was my favorite; although I only have Once.

Tarja was the only thing that separated thing from other trashmetal. I mean seriously, it's what separated them and made them good. Without it, they are literally nothing.

With her, I like them. I haven't heard without, so I'll have to wait, but it's probably le bad. :(

trashmetal? I know power metal, I know gothic metal I know thrash metal, but trash metal? Though it sounds like the right name for Nightwish WITH Tarja

Trashmetal is my name for any subgenre of metal because I don't want to think about it.

But without Tarja we just have another Sonata Arctica (which is a good band) singing about elves. Gaaay.

They have pretty decent music really, but Tarja has one of the most annoying female vocals in the history of world music (my opinion ofcourse). Special it is I can give her that

The music is decent, but it's not spectacular. The reason they are so universally popular, even outside the metal world, is because of the singer. A classically trained opera singer. You might not like it, but I love it. I mean let's face, the guy from Sonata Arctica does sound good, but he does have one of the ugliest voices ever. :(

that's hardly original though, most of the gothic metal scene exists of bands with a classically trained opera singer (generally sopranos). So you can't really call it original. They're well known indeed but that has more to do with the easy listening style they have compared to most bands (read: the complete and total absense of a grunter/male singer and the relatively soft guitar playing).

Granted Tarja's technique is good (like most of the soprano's in metal really) but I really don't like her sound (but yes that's personal). I'd prefer a Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation) though their last CD wasn't exactly what I hoped for.

I also like Within Temptation. But their hippie bullshit bothers me. :( A boy living in a forest, wtf?
