Released: 2001, Spinefarm Records
Reviewer: El Cid
This is a very limited edition CD featuring the much loved Nightwish.
I was very happy when I saw this for sale on ebay a while ago, this is what MANY bands should do (you listening Akerfeldt???) instead of re-releasing your old albums with the bonus tracks they had in foreign versions, you take a CD and shove all the bonus tracks in there together thus saving the listener quite an amount of money by having him buy one CD instead of 3 or 4!
This EP features 5 tracks which are either bonus tracks from foreign versions of angels fall first and oceanborn or unreleased versions of songs from all 3 albums. It also contains 2 video tracks which are Sleeping Sun and a live version of Sacrament of Wilderness that really does it for me!
In all this is a great catch if you’re a fan of this magnificent band and I do recommend you get it on ebay since the price is usually under $8.
