    Can we just appreciate the Mad Genius that is Tuomas Holopainen?
    Talents like him are said to be born once a century. In ancient times, he may have become a songwriter, componist or musician we remember fondly even today.
    Let us make sure that happens.

      @henk raadmaar Arjen Lucassen is arguably a musical and compositional genius. Tuomas Holopainen soars above them all and he doesn't think twice about it.

      @Amorphic Spirit Perfect synergy of vision, talent and sheer off-the-charts genius. Who else writes and composes like this? No one. Who else has the voice of an angel and the powers of a world class empath? No one. As another has said, they are like gods... with instruments.

      @Amorphic Spirit True!!! A singer can be as good as she wants (I adore Floor), but without the right music..... Don't get me wrong, I liked her already in Star one and After forever, but in Nightwish she is off the charts!!! (My opinion)

    "How does one even emotionally recover from a Nightwish concert?" ......... You can't. I was privileged enough to play the drums for a band that opened for them in Auckland, New Zealand in 2013. To this day the experience is as fresh as it was back then. I was able to recommend a few local brews to Emppu and Marco after their soundcheck and my wife had the task of guarding the toilet door for Floor as the lock was broken (Floor was eternally grateful for that). The thing made me laugh was with in about two minutes of them finishing their set Floor had traded her knee high boots for jandles. It was a hot night after all. We watched the set the played from dam as near side of stage. It was amazing. I hope to see them again back here in New Zealand.

      Nightwish came to Reno, Nv. WTF? So, as a fan of both Nightwish and Dawkins, I brought my worn out copy of "The Ancestor's Tale." All members of the band signed it, and posed for photos with me. They love what they do, even playing a small venue in a shit-hole such as Reno.

      @Rients Dijkstra Yep I got it. I'm italian so "falsetto" is quite a normal word for me and no offense is intended 😅 I think the origin in the word stands in the fact that it's a technique requiring to change somehow your original vocal timbre, so the "false" reference...

      @Emanuele Corsi You could be right, although I never use the word "falsetto" (which contains the word: "false", and therefore has a negative connotation). I would say "lyrical headvoice", which is not "false" at all, if you get my drift...

    Her parents were in the crowd, so that's one of the reasons she gave everything.
    And also, they were making a movie about her and that whole show, since the musical school she attended was in Tampere.
    You can find that movie on youtube.
    She was really emotional about it.

      Incredible performance in soooo many ways, spot on, in depth review by Julia. Watch reaction/review videos to learn more and increase appreciation and understanding of a piece of music and the performers. Watch Julia's reviews frequently because she does such a great job of accessing many features of a performance. As a recent convert to Nightwish, it's also great to see a professional fall in love with Nightwish while I also do so. Hope she keeps on the journey.

    well guys... I did it! I completed the Trinity :) yayyy!
    the more I thought about this piece post edit the more things I wanted to comment on so I'll add a couple more things below.
    the lyrical content for this song was incredible but simultaneously educational as heck.... I found myself googling some of the phenomena/things they mentioned because not only did the song make me curious/interested it also made me care about how lucky we are to exist and be here as we are. the music itself really captured that as incredible as evolution is it's has been all about survival and sometimes survival, growth or extreme change isn't beautiful OR comfortable.
    let me know your thoughts on the vocal breakdown. a comment was left recently that made me consider the accessibility of the terminology I use so let me know if you'd like a break down minus any of the technical jargon.
    overall... wow... holy heck .... yes. incredible.
    hope you liked it!

      Amongst all musical references at the end of the song, there is one i think im the only one to know here is a reference at the famous track "the Grid" by Philip Glass, featured on the Soundrack of the movie Koyaanisqatsi (1982). Also Nightwish crew choose to show a typical animation of that movie part on the screen with the cars moving on accelerated time.

      @Julia Nilon Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, that was fast! Thanks for answering my question. To say nothing about doing it so fast it's like you were in the starting blocks for a 100 meter sprint! FYI, I have only been aware of Nightwish (and Floor) for a month, maybe six weeks. My gateway drug was "Ghost Love Score" Currently obsessed. Bought the last two studio albums, and Blu Rays of three different live tours. You and Elizabeth are to blame (Well, and Nightwish of course), because I first heard them on one of your channels, can't remember which. THANK YOU! To return the favor, you owe it to yourself (whether you "react" or not) to check out the group Heilung, starting with "In Maidjian". Also the song "Misty Mountains" with Peter Hollens and Tim Faust. Thanks again! Edit: Forgot to say that you are one of two of these channels I watch (Elizabeths' being the other) because you are truly educational, and have been a vehicle to a deeper appreciation of the music I already love. Also, Floor has a channel. In addition to being The Angel of Music, she has made me laugh.

    What really amazes me is that Floor probably does this, what, like a hundred times a year? Between Nightwish and other projects and things like Beste Zangers and other engagements. She may not always be at this kind of level as for a live taping or something. She may be, it wouldn’t surprise me. Quite frankly it’s just astonishing that she has that performance in her in just about every live recording I’ve seen. I don’t think I’ve heard her raspy or lower her high notes or sound out of pitch. She’s quite frankly one of the most amazing vocal talents certainly in our generation just on voice alone, her stamina puts her head and shoulders above anyone I know of.

      The references start with the tribal drums. The fluets before the minuet are reference to Dies Irae, Day of Wrath - A Chant from the Traditional Latin Requiem Mass. After the minuet there is also another reference to Bach the infamous Toccata and Fugue in D minor, then Sandman etc. Thought I would add something to the reference list, altough I am sure there are number of gems hidden in the piece. :)

Usually I want people to pause a lot and let me in on what they're thinking straight away but with these nightwish songs I like your annotations for what is going through your head and how you let it play at times and then pause and explain at more appropriate times... the annotations are so great to explain when you're just vibing or pull a certain face (that I'm usually making at home too!). Kudos, your amazement at nightwish is matched by your amazing explanations at what is going on vocally with the arrangements 💞

    Loved your reaction all the way to the end. The break down with all the technical pieces was really great. I think it's really easy to listen to them (and maybe Floor especially) and say "that's amazing" without really understanding how difficult it is to do the things they do because they make it look so easy. I think it's great that you take the time to point that out and even explain not only why it's challenging but also what she's doing to make it more manageable.
    Anyway, love the reaction....looking forward to more :)

    I am a student of biology (even though I got my last degree in 1989, I never stop learning.) When I learned that my favorite author, Richard Dawkins had teamed up with my favorite band, it shook me to the core. I couldn't believe it! I really enjoy "reaction videos," because people around me just kind of smile and nod. It is nice to see another person get it.

    Made it to the end of the video. It's really neat how you break down the elements and analyze these songs.
    It'd be really great if you could react to the Nightwish cover of "Phantom of the Opera" with their original singer Tarja Turunen (the "j" sounds like a "y"). They performed it live in 2005 for their "End of an Era" DVD.
    And Floor also has a "Phantom" cover, but not with Nightwish. She performed it on a show called "Beste Zangers" in 2019.

    This was the last concert from a world tour. They are in Finland so they wanted to be home for Christmas. Floor’s parents and sister were in the crowd. Floor said she would not look at them often because she would choke up. Her costume is based on Finnish folk dress.

    Really appreciate you taking the time to analyze technics details of the performance, that makes all the difference.
    Even Floor mentioned in a recent insta live she has not seen many reactions that go into the technical part of producing the sound she chooses for each section.

    Yes, I made it to the end of your video 🙂. It is not hard to stay around when you are experiencing a song as grand as this. Something happens to time when you listen to it (and most Nightwish tracks) - 20min goes past so fast - and you could then spend days appreciating all of the technical brilliance that is within it. I just love your reactions, and your analysis, of these epic tracks. I would imagine that, even if you were just hanging out your washing, your commentary on that would be insightful and entertaining. Keep up the great reactions

    How does one recover emotionally from a Nightwish concert? I've seen them twice, and when I figure it out, I'll let you know too. This piece has NEVER failed to make me cry. Love your vids, I subbed the second I saw you react to both Nightwish and Home Free...definitely both relative to my interests. xD

    Your insight into the actual techniques being used are amazing. There are a few folks out there who want to see some KZcliprs on Floor Finds (Floor's own channel "show"), and since she has mentioned that not enough folks break down the techniques, I threw your name in the hat, hopefully I get to see you fangirl on Floor's channel.

    This was a whirlwind. But it was amazing. Floor stuns me every time - and I know that others have recommended you check out her “phantom of the opera” performance.
    Out of curiosity... Have you ever of Within Temptation? (A song would be Angels) Sharon sounds like a literal angel herself when singing.

    One of the reasons why this was so emotional for Floor was the fact that her parents were attending this show in Tampere.There is an interview with them before the show for a Dutch program as well as with Marko and Tuomas.

    Lets not forget that when Floor joined the band she was a temporary replacement for Anette Olzen (We all knew Floor would become permanent) and she learned the set list of 15 song in 48 hours. So not only is she an amazing singer she's smart as hell too. Here's the documentary if you haven't seen it yet. Kind of brings the band to life as people rather than just band members and you kind of warm to them individually too. kzclip.org/video/vhExkmWKMEU/бейне.html

    Julia, WOW! What a fantastic tune (to start with), but what a phenomenal analysis! My head's about to explode on both accounts! The piece itself is an epic experience, but thank you for taking the time to really delve into the mastery that all, but especially Floor, employ to pull this off - and as an encore/last song no doubt! I really enjoy your channel, your enthusiasm, 'biological' knowledge, expression and overall feel of the music!! Cheers from Canada!

    Nightwish is one of those Once In A Lifetime bands that'll be remembered for the ages...hard to believe that they first came out in 1994 and they just keep getting better imo, especially now that they have Floor Jansen, but i love Tarja Turunen, their original singer as well. If I am not mistaken, there just was or is very soon about to be a performance by Floor Jansen WITH Tarja, so that should be extraordinary...but Floor just seems to have this almost inexhaustible well of stamina, energy and techniques, incredible...glad you enjoyed this one, I totally did \m/

    You never completely recover from a Nightwish concert, whether its in big stadiums or small halls (less than 5000 people), where I have been privileged enough to see them a half-dozen times. While I enjoyed Annette during the Dark Passion Play tour (I missed Imaginareum), Floor takes everything to another level. I started going to shows in the mid-1970s and have seen some terrific bands, but Nightwish is right at the top. Marco's retirement puts a damper on things, but I hope to see them again soon. Thanks for you smart and enthusiastic reactions.

  • Борислав Даскалов

    Without Marko it won't be the same sound, even if his voice is not primal. They voices are perfectly combined and the result is ... goose bumps!!!
    P.S. Floor is a really beautiful big danish lady. She got a big lung capacity and that's why her voice can be so beautiful, and not only. :)

    Just found you today. Love your show. I was a trained vocalist (do we ever stop?)... and this woman blows me away with all the things you point out. I REALLY appreciate your informed comments that are often playing in my own head as I listen to this amazing band. My son introduced me to Nightwish, just as I introduced him to Jusie Bjorling.... I used to take him and a car load of his friends on musical rides in my cool convertible. Those boys have amazing musical taste to this day - far beyond their cohorts. Some days that makes me feel like my work here is done. Can you appreciate that?

    Something that I love about Nightwish is the amount of knowledge put into the music and the lyrics.. The first few songs made me research about so many things, learn about history, philosophy, art, culture in general, broaden my horizons of knowledge, then re-listen the songs again and again untill I really don't know how many times heard every song.. And when you have not only good songs but really good artist behing the sound is when music create a memory that resonate and create a before and an after.. I'm not a tryhard fan of Nightwish, but I respect the ones who can make me stop, look around to know where I am and learn new things about the world or about myself, then cotinue my path feeling bigger that I was before.. That such a feeling that only art is capable of and this is such a piece of art..

    Hi Julia. The bag thing is called uilleann pipes. It is the Irish version of the bagpipes. A little bellows under the elbow (uilleann is the Irish word for elbow) brings the air into the bag. It is an instrument that has been developed to be played sitting down, held on the lap and can be played indoors because the volume is way more modest than for instance the Scottisch pipes that are usually played outdoors. Great review btw. It is so much fun and even a bit emotional watching you watching and listening to Nightwish.
