Re: The Dark Element (Anette Olzen and Jani Liimatainen)

You beat me to it -- this was just released yesterday I believe, and it is fantastic !!! I thought Annette's previous solo disc was excellent, this surpasses it by far. Heavier, more aggressive, and more Nightwish-like on many songs. 2 or 3 songs could be pulled right from songs that didn't make it ...

SHADOWPLAY is back !!!!! New single.......
