5.0 out of 5 stars As usual....Nightwish brings it! June 30, 2006
Format:DVD
I've got to admit that I was a little worried about how this DVD would turn out. "From Wishes to Eternity" is my favorite DVD bar none- could it be matched? Most of the live clips I've seen since FWTE, have been reasonably good, but not spectacular. Big stages have seemed to diminish band interaction and the immediacy & impact of the performances, the band has looked kind of static and audio quality has been nothing great, at best. Then there's the whole Tarja situation and its still lingering aftermath....

Well fellow NW acolytes and all you "civilians" out there, have no fear because this show and DVD/box is another great Nightwish experience. High energy all around, the intensity level stays up throughout the entire show, everyone in the arena seems to be fully engaged in the event, the band's performance is great, the audio is the best yet, and the video work is generally solid too. Realistically, its just about as much as one could hope for as far as capping things off in a positive and energetic way.

So, some details... Its nice and long....18 songs with a concert length of 100 minutes. Despite reputedly having the flu that day, both Marco and Tarja sound fantastic - at the top of their form. Marco adds a lot of onstage chemistry, as you would expect (who was that surly looking guy with a bass on FWTE anyway"). Tarja looks fully engaged and she appears to be enjoying herself. Her whole situation really wasn't much of a factor for me, while watching the show, although it does kind of enter your awareness once the last couple of songs come along. Forget about picking highlights, there are just too many, but if I must I would take "Bless the Child", "Ghost Love Score" - especially when the red confetti falls towards the end, and "Over the Hills". Don't agree?

5.0 out of 5 stars Nightwish : "End Of An Era" August 22, 2007
Format:DVD
First off, I'm not the biggest fan of Nightwish. Speaking in general, I can do without all of the "operatic approach" to their music. I'm much more of a METALHEAD so to speak, and I don't usually listen to bands that base their music around that "welcome to the opera" feel like Nightwish...

That being said, it was very difficult for me to get into Nightwish upon first listen a couple of years back. I was already a very big Lacuna Coil fan at the tinme, but these are two totally different bands, with different sounds / styles / and all around talents. You simply can't / shouldn't compare the two. Needless to say, I found Nightwish to be too opera oriented for my everyday listening....

Now onto this review....

I was completely blown away with this live performance. Nightwish is without question one of the tightest, most impressive live acts I've seen on DVD in quite some time. These are extremely complex songs to perform, and I couldn't have been more impressed with this purchace....

I was never a big Nightwish fan, but after seeing this incredible live performance, I have a lot more respect for this band. They are truly something special in a live setting, and even if you're like me and don't care for the opera feel to the music, I'm sure you'll still embrace "End Of An Era" with open arms after watching it for yourself....

5 STAR PERFORMANCE / BUY WITH CONFIDENCE!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic concert, but poor DVD technically May 8, 2009
Format:DVD
This is a fantastic, wonderful concert as others have mentioned. I won't spend a lot of time on that except to agree with most of the comments about the performance. Never having had the chance to see Tarja perform, it was great to be able to watch this.

That said, I was quite disappointed by this DVD technically. I can't believe that, given the year and what this is, the "end of an era" document that this represents, that more care was not taken to have this DVD meet a better standard. 1) The DVD is letterboxed and not anamorphic (if you have a widescreen TV, it still shows as letterboxed instead of filling the screen - that means quality is lost), and 2) the sound is available in only Dolby Digital, not a higher quality version. I can't help but contrast this to Within Temptation's "Black Symphony" DVD which I bought simultaneous to this - it has a beautifully shot widescreen presentation, and DTS 96/24 sound which on a quality audio system is much better than Dolby Digital. I haven't seen any comments about this for End Of An Era so wanted to mention it. I really wish a better effort had been made technically for this otherwise wonderful document of a special event.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor video quality.
The video quality of this BluRay is really bad, is scaled. The DVD plays better in my Playstation 3 system.
Sounds good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff
I know Nightwish has been criticized as being a symphonic goth band for teenagers, but I'm well beyond my teenage years, and I love most of the songs on this album.
