Any thoughts?

Easily my favourite NW album after Oceanborn. Like its predecessor, the lyrics, melodies and overall feel of Wishmaster are crafted to perfection. Tarja's voice sounds more streamlined on this album, yet she still uses her natural operatic vocals (It wasn't until Century Child when she started singing in a less operatic way). Songs like Wanderlust and Crownless have the potential to become power metal anthems, whilst Two For Tragedy is the closest NW have ever come to being gothic, though they're obviously far off from the likes of My Dying Bride and Sirenia. If I had to pick one song that I love the most, it would be FantasMic. Without a doubt. Next to Crownless, it's the best representation of each band member's talent, and has some of the best lyrics on the album - Black cauldron born, Gurgi's heart forlorn... - not to mention that it's based on Disney ^-^

In short, Wishmaster is absolutely brilliant. A true power metal classic from beginning to end.

I like this album a lot,it's my 3rd in a tie with Once .It's proabably their most 'power metal' album with very fast riffs and drum beats,and keyboards.It shows Tarja's highest potential.her voice sounds really powerfull here,althought it's still hard to decipher what she's saying without reading the lyrics .Overall the album is very energic,cheerful,and sometimes even fanatstic(mainly in songs like Wishmaster,Fantasmic and Wanderlust) and on the other hand sad and melancholic(Dead Boy's Poem,Two For Tragedy).If I have to pick some faves I'd say Fanatsmic,very complex and fast song,and you can hear the choirs for the very first time in NW's dicography,Dead Boy's Poem,because it has some of the most emotional lyrics Tuomas ever wrote,plus the song overall is very beautiful.When I saw it live,I started to cry*brings back wonderful memories*,She Is My Sin,Come Cover Me,Kinslayer and Crownless.The rest of the album is good but it doesn't really catch my attention.
