The Duet we all wanted...

Within Temptation ft Tarja!

This must have been the most talked topic during last week. If you are a Metal lover, you know what I'm talking about.

I also had very high expectations, as the last WT album was very disappointing to me. It's a nice album but should never be under the name "Within Temptation". It just doesn't fit, in my opinion.
Anyway, when the news came out that Tarja would collaborate with WT on their new single, I was very curious; I mean, with Tarja it can't be bad, right?

Well... How should I say this now?!.... If I listen only the song, it's much better than the last album but the video... Nop!!! 
Regarding the song: well, it's a bit pop/rock/radio-friendly song, but that's the direction that WT have chosen to take since some time ago. It's a nice song, but I still prefer the old material.
Now the video: I didn't like the fact that they made Tarja look like Sharon. I think there's a reason for that, but I didn't like it. The subject of the video, it wasn't new and there were some scenes that reminded me of the video Unleashed from Epica (the band shots in the warehouse).

So, all in all, it wasn't what I expected, but an OK-single.

Here it is, for you own judgement:

Still waiting for some better music coming out....

Enjoy your Sunday!

  1. Just listened the song (and the video) once, but it sounded to me like a Nightwish song, not only because of Tarja, but mostly because of the melody.
    It's a great combination (Sharon + Tarja) that comes too late in their respective careers, in my humble opinion.
