The second half is better, imo, but if you didn't enjoy the first half then it probably won't win you over.

I thought that after the first listen myself. Like most albums though, you need a good three or four listens to get a feel for everything. It is a good album but that's it, just good. With a songwriter the caliber of Tuomas, a four year wait for a new album should be more than just "good". The only Nightwish album i'd rank this over right now is their first one.

A few things about the album that I don't like:

The intro to it serves no purpose and isn't a good set up for Storytime. It would be better if it wasn't there.

Slow, Love, Slow might the most boring track Nightwish has ever recorded.

Scaretale is a pretty good song except for that odd middle part that takes a totally different music direction and damn near ruins the whole song.

Arabesque is a rather pointless instrumetal that doesn't really need to be there.

The first half of Song Of Myself is quite good but once the dialog part comes at the half way point of the song, i'm asuming this is dialog from the movie, it just gets boring rather quickly. Especially when the talking part goes on for about 5 or 6 minutes.

The rest of it is enjoyable but certainly not up to the standards that have been set with Oceborn through DPP.

True, but there are a lot of sites out there and some do get them before others. I got a handful of ones I regularly check and can usually find what i'm looking for.
