It is a compilation album and BMTL is one of their signature songs that leans itself for this project, alongside ofcourse My Immortal

Oh cool, i had no idea there was such an option. Well, i hope i'll be lucky on friday. They're one of the artists i've never seen before but are a 'must' to see for me.
And this is also a once in a lifetime thing with the orchestra, so even more special, I saw Ev live for the first time back in June and loved every second of it. After meeting the band back in June, I think this might be my favorite line-up, I hope we will see a proper album by this line-up sooner than later.

^ I know. This is such a 'must-see' :(

There seems to be a pre-sale happening on their website but just for VIP tickets, which are VERY expensive. I need to think about it for some minutes... cause i'm slowly running out of money with all these concerts this & next year :lol:

Anyways, the venue is all seated over here. Is it the same in other countries?

edit: Oh, VIP bundle includes the following stuff:
- One premium reserved seat in the first 15 rows
- One Signed tour program (includes sheet music, photos, lyrics)
- One Exclusive merch item
- Early Entry
- Crowd free merch shopping
- One commemorative VIP laminate

Not worth paying over 200 swiss francs for each ticket - i guess i wait until tomorrow, then :(

Lindsey Stirling is featured on the song "Hi-Lo" :cry: :cry: :cry:

(a shame that it seems she's not credited though)

The original is already amazing, but it works really well with the "Synthesis" concept, much better than "Bring Me To Life" IMO

Just bought it (since they didn't have a single copy of The Dark Element). Anyway, they played a few tracks at my favourite store and I loved the sound of it + The cover is stunning.
Can't wait to listen to it.

Just listened it and it is a solid piece, I must say I kinda wish she would have re-done some more TOD songs

I also like the remakes; it's not perfect but some arrangements are very interesting and I like the vibe of the album.

I love this! It's better than expected actually. The nostalgia effect on some of the songs is immense.

It's so good to see them doing so well on iTunes. Somehow it's incredible how they still have such a good fanbase after all these years.

btw... i created a chart topic for those who are interested :)

I don't like it.
The idea was nice but the whole thing comes off as really boring and uninspired.

Yeah, this is a pass for me. I'm generally not into albums of reworked songs - there maybe one or two songs I like, but still not as much as the originals. Live/Unplugged is one thing, but studio re-workings are another. Alanis Unplugged vs. Jagged Little Pill Acoustic, for example. The former is STELLAR, and the latter is a non-event for me.

I did listen through most of this album and while I love strings - nope.
