Colours In The Dark do not shy away from taking a risk and surprising musical turns, introducing new sounds and new musical atmospheres. Still, they maintain a heaviness that will surely bring a big smile to the hardest of rockers. With its grand orchestra and choir arrangements, Tarja’s next milestone emphasises once again the impressive vocal range of the Finnish artist and shows her artistic growth.

The name of the album, as the cover image, came as a metaphor from the idea that life has a large range of colors and the dark absorb all of them, containing every color. Artwork was created by Dirk Rudolph.

Mixed by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2) in Austin, Texas.

Guest musicians:
Thomas Bloch : Glass Harmonica
Saro Danielian : Duduk
Justin Furstenfeld : Vocals on "Medusa"
Caroline Lavelle : Cello
Naomi Cabuli Turunen (Tarja's daughter) on "Lucid Dreamer"
Mel Wesson : Synthesizer

Colours in the Dark Comments

level   (85/100)
Snaží sa nadviazať na staré obdobie Nightwish, je to viac symfonické, muzikálne, ale menej presvedčivé
