level   (85/100)
괜찮게 들은 앨범~ 추천해주고 싶기도 하다, 나쁘지 않음
level   (90/100)
클래식을 좋아하는 나에겐 정규앨범보다 더 좋아라하는 앨범. 게임이나 영화 ost로 써도 될 법하다.
level   (60/100)
영화 음악은 흥미가 없는지라 재미없게 들었다.
level   (80/100)
아.. 이건 나이트위시의 음악이 아니라 투오마스의 솔로앨범에 더 적합한 것 같다. 나이트위시가 하던 음악이 액션영화였다면 Imaginaerum 앨범은 로맨틱 영화고, 이 앨범은 OST라고 할 수 있다. 그런데.. 생각보다 귀에 잘 들어오고 저절로 집중하게 된다.
level   (85/100)
상당히 괜찮게 들은 앨범.
level   (90/100)
와 그냥 보컬 영입하지 말고 이쪽으로 밀어도 괜찮겠네요
