Staff review by

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.

  The samples are not bad at all.

Rating: 7 Falling Awake with Satriani is my favorite!

Good Album all-round! feel's heavier than her previous works.
Wishmaster - 04.09.2010 at 05:10  
  Way way way waaayyyy better than MWS.
annodomini - 05.09.2010 at 16:32  
  Yeah, but the setlist is wrong in MS. There even isn't I feel immortal.

Rating: 7 Not awful, not brilliant just doesn't seem to appeal much to me
Now all I have to do is wait for the next one...

  My review of What lies beneath:
Cassian - 12.09.2010 at 05:48  
  Wonderful album!
Much more melodic and metal than My Winter Storm.
She's still alluring after Nightwish. Thank God.

Rating: 9 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.

Rating: 10 Damn, I'm addicted to this album, well done Tarja!! woohoooo!!

Rating: 10 The album is cool and the gig is even better
HarueWLB - 04.02.2011 at 21:26  
  I think this album is better than the first. More accurate, more 'fascinating'. Tarja have done an excellent job. *w*

Rating: 7 I cannot help wiping that smirk off my face whenever she sings "I feel immoral"

Rating: 10 Awesome!
M C Vice - 06.08.2011 at 15:52  
Rating: 9 Why was the song order changed just because one song is different between the US and international versions?
Ap46 - 09.03.2012 at 17:29  
  Nice approach!
