Tarja Turunen requires no special introductions, even people outside the metal scene know her, so I will proceed to what I'm here for, review her latest effort, What Lies Beneath. To be honest, I was wondering the same thing as the title, hoping it will be something very good, judging from the fact Tarja holds all artistic freedom within her hands since her Nightwish sunset.

Wonderful album!
Much more melodic and metal than My Winter Storm.
She's still alluring after Nightwish. Thank God.

I can't stop listening to it. It's fantastic. Can't wait to see Tarja live in London in October.

I get the I-have-heard-that-before feeling when I listen to Underneath. I think I have heard a similar song in a video game or maybe a movie? Idk though.

I think this album is better than the first. More accurate, more 'fascinating'. Tarja have done an excellent job. *w*

Why was the song order changed just because one song is different between the US and international versions?
