Editorial Reviews

Four disc (two CDs + two Blu-Ray discs) edition. 2013 live release from the Finnish Symphonic Metal band. Recorded during their live performance at the Wacken Open Air in Wacken, Germany on August 3, 2013. Showtime, Storytime is the first Nightwish production to feature Floor Jansen on vocals. She initially replaced previous vocalist Anette Olzon during their North America tour leg, and on October 9, 2013, it was revealed that she would become an official band member, alongside with Troy Donockley. The DVDs include footage from the live show as well as a 120 minute documentary about the first days of Jansen in the band, still as a only live member, and her process of adaptation in the band.

So I'm writing this review as I'm watching the DVD of their concert for the third time, and I thought I'd go ahead and write out some of my observations/gush incoherently.

First, it's more than obvious that Floor is an excellent fit for Nightwish, as is Troy. The chemistry of the band on stage is undeniable. And Floor's voice... she's been one of my favorite singers for several years, since at least 2004, and I even once joked to a friend who is also a Nightwish fan that the only thing more epic than Tarja with Nightwish would be Floor with Nightwish, and this was while Tarja was still part of the band. So, I was thrilled but not surprised when they announced it had been made official.

Second, the sound and visual quality of the DVD is pretty good, but I do think that the camera should have focused a bit more on the band and the stage rather than the crowd (and believe me when I say that I hate every last one of those 82,000 people who got to witness this show live!! But none more than the guy in the hat who always seems to just never be impressed. Watch the video. You'll see the one I mean!).

The thing about this show is that it's made up of a lot of really beautiful moments. One such beautiful moment is when Marco and Floor are singing together at the end of "I Wish I Had an Angel", and Floor hits some really amazing notes; she actually made me fall in love with that song all over again, for the first time in a long time. Another of my favorites is during "Ghost River", when during the first verse Emppu walks by Marco, squeezes his arm, then goes to stand by Tuomas, and then shrugs at the camera while making a goofy face. Also during Ghost River, Floor's vocals are spectacular!

Disc 1 “Showtime”: 90+Minutes of the full Nightwish headlining set ,Waken 2013.

Only a few minutes in , its already well clear Floor is just so RIGHT for Nightwish , and equally Floor has found a band so RIGHT for her:. They know it, she knows it, the 80,000 + crowd knows it, you know it. The onstage chemistry , Floor’s vocals and stage presence all certainly show it.

Earlier, heavier Nightwish classics fill the opening and closing thirds of the show, linked by a sublime run of tracks from Dark Passion Play and Imaginareum midway –enter new 6th band-member Troy Donockley on pipes and whistles for these.

Sound quality is fine, as mostly is the camera work –there is just one “but”: in the editing afterwards, somebody seems to have got more than little carried away with crowd –surfer footage: it’s not just how many such cut-aways there are, it’s also sometimes WHEN they happen - cutting at just the wrong moment across Floor or Marco or whoever in full flow -that can get kind of irritating.

Crowd-surfer overload aside, this is nevertheless a must –have, both for fans of Nightwish in particular and also equally fans of operatic/symphonic metal or rock in general. And one you might well go-back-to rather often.

Disc 2 “Storytime” (Go to Settings to select English subtitles before you start!):

Main feature is “Please learn the setlist in 48 hours”.
At 90+ minutes this could have been overlong for a “vlog” of any normal tour, but as any fan will already know the “Imaginaerum” tour was to prove anything but.

Anette chose as was her right not to appear or be heard at all, that makes for footage of “her” first half of the tour feeling unavoidably a little weird in places.

The concert and the audio CDs are great. This show has made me a Floor Jansen fan. To me she is somewhre between Tarja and Anette but with a more powerfull voice. She can do songs from either era and it sounds awesome. Now they need to get in the studio and put out an album to cement Floor's place in Nightwish.

I do have a couple of complaints though. I wish the blurays were in a standard case. I don't care for the digipak that the movie came in.

My other issue is the documentary "Please learn the setlist in 48 hours". From the name I thought it would be about Floor joining the band and the things she had to go through to get acclimated with the band. And it starts out that way but then it goes back in time and for over an hour we see the band with no main singer as Annette did not want to be included in the film. And it's just hoing from one city to the next. It got old really quickly. I doubt I'll watch it again.

Also, what's up with showing Marco's big toe as he is being interviewed? I did not need to see that.

I was really looking forward to receiving this new blu-ray. Nightwish put on an outstanding concert, and their new vocalist Floor Jansen is a perfect fit for the band. I saw Nightwish on their North American tour at the Royal Oak Music Theatre in Michigan in September of 2012 when they still had Anette Olzon. I loved both Anette and Tarja, and I can say that I look forward to hearing what the band will do with Floor on future recordings. But this concert was filmed like a music video. The camera doesn't stay on one shot for more than 2 seconds throughout the whole show. You know you are in trouble when there are multiple cameras filming a show and the director is intent on using every one of them for each song. I don't want to see a minute of crowd surfing and screaming faces every single song. Yes, we get it, the crowd is excited.....we want to see the band and you won't lose our attention if you keep the camera in one place for 5 seconds. Really a shame, this could have been one of my favorite concert releases ever, but it is practically unwatchable because the editing is so annoying. The second disc is a tour documentary which is entertaining but unfortunately due to the wishes of both parties, Anette is not shown at all. Well at least I have the 2 CDs to listen to....

Where's the AutoRip?
I just downloaded it from Amazon Cloud Player now, so I think it's up. Give it a try. (They ended up delaying my physical order as well, still no update on shipping. I need to give up on the idea of getting Release Date Shipping from Amazon.)

Got the bluray today but
I too just got the blu ray edition in the soft case (digipack). Disappointed as well. Description should have stated it as such, Amazon dropped the ball again like they did with Tarja's Colours in the Dark box set fiasco.
