Oceanborn is a symphonic power metal album and the second studio album by Nightwish. It was published on 1998-12-07. The music is mostly symphonic metal and many of the songs have a nautical theme which romanticizes early seafaring and exploration.
I learned about Nightwish after checking out the MySpace profile of a young woman I met at the Renaissance Festival with whom I was smitten by. She had them listed as one of her favorite bands, so I used Kazaa to download some of their songs, and the first one I listened to was Stargazers, which I immediately loved.
I do no own this album.
Later releases of this album contain the single Sleeping Sun as track 11.
This is the order in which I enjoy the songs from this album, and their individual song ratings.
|3||Walking In the Air||6|
|4||Sacrament of Wilderness||6|
|7||Devil & the Deep Dark Ocean||1|
|8||Passion and the Opera||1|
|10||The Pharaoh Sails to Orion||1|
The album's total score is 854.
