By Eric James
Nightwish's most underrated album.

If you have never heard this amazing band before, check out Wishmaster or Century Child, then come back to Angels Fall First.

Angels Fall First arguably remains the band's most eclectic album (unfocused to its detractors), and, for this very reason, a favorite for many of their fans.

Though I love the acoustic guitar, the flute, and in general, the synths, Angels Fall First fails to resonate with me, and combined with some strange songs and Tuomas’s rather…er…underwhelming vocal performance, it’s the Nightwish album I listen to the least.

It is clear that Nightwish have what it takes to push the boundaries of Metal with this release, but, sadly, Angels Fall First is not all that impressive.
