What a performance by Floor Jansen and Henk Poort (who I had never heard of). Wait for that last note!

She's amazing. She actually has a more powerful voice than Tarja did and uses a little less vibrato so I actually like her better in Nightwish. I like Tarja just fine on her own. Great clip!

Personally I'm not a fan of Floor's Nightwish. I know a lot of people may criticize me for it but I preferred Tarja's classical voice and Anette's dreamer-like voice. I'm not saying Floor is a bad singer because she's not and many people are enjoying it. I'm just no longer a Nightwish fan, or at least not the modern Nightwish and I don't like Floor's performance of older songs.

Tuomas is an exceptional composer, he is able to tailor songs to compliment the singer's voice and they should stick with that. I'm very simple and for me Sleeping Sun or Phantom of the Opera can be performed by Tarja, Poet and the Pendulum or Sahara by Anette. I'm sorry if it sounds a bit harsh but imho Floor should stick with songs designed for her. I've seen vocal coaches and regular listeners react to her performance but I wasn't enchanted by any of it. It's not my kind of Nightwish. Just like Sonata Arctica isn't the same without Jani on guitar.

You are certainly not alone in that view buddy. There are tons of people who just don't like Floor in Nightwish. I personally never liked Annette just because she wasn't a good enough singer to actually sing the old songs and would routinely run off stage in tears when she couldn't hit the notes. I still love Tarja, her solo stuff is really cool imho smile.gif
