    I will probably check it out when it hits, but from that it is not even in the same league as Cain's Offering.

    I like this. I didn't realize how much I missed Anette's voice. She sounds good here.

    Annette sounds better here than with Nightwish. I hated the Annette years.

    This is such a killer disc !!!! Annette really pulls out all the stops on this one. I really liked her previous solo effort, but this one is far better. Heavier, catchier, fun and Annette sounds absolutely wonderful. She even pulls out some Nightwish sounding songs that could have easily come from some lost NW tapes that weren't used on their discs with Annette. I'm not one for that "pop" sound -- but her voice mixed in with that symphonic metal is absolutely captivating. She found her niche - and she shines. Don't pass this up if you liked her in Nightwish.......

    This disc is AWESOME and I hope they remain in tact. This is really catchy and fun. Plenty of crunch - vocals are awesome and the solos are incredible. AWESOME Disc.
